COLUMBUS, OH., 21 June, 2011—The Naval Facilities Engineering Service Center awarded Battelle a task order contract with a ceiling of $75 million to assist ongoing cleanup efforts to clean up Navy, Marine Corps and federal government facilities at various locations worldwide.
The five-year, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract continues Battelle’s history of making gains in conducting important environmental work for the Navy, Marine Corps, which it began in 1995.
Military installations across the country face-long term environmental challenges in cleaning up contamination—a result of decades-old routines and testing activities undertaken before environmental guidelines were in place.
Battelle’s role under the contract is to provide innovative, sustainable technologies, technology optimization and technology transfer so that all Naval and Marine Corps bases can use the best remediation technologies through a uniform standard approach, said Godage Wickramanayake, Program Manager in Battelle’s Energy, Environment and Material Sciences Global Business.
“We’re proud to continue our long history of nearly two decades helping the Department of Defense tackle pressing environmental and sustainability issues,” Wickramanayake said. “Applying clean technologies toward environmental issues facing government and industry is a hallmark of Battelle’s environmental stewardship and technical capabilities.”
As the world’s largest independent research and development organization, Battelle provides innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing needs through its four global businesses: Laboratory Management; National Security; Health and Life Sciences; and Energy, Environment and Material Sciences. It advances scientific discovery and application by conducting $6.2 billion in global R&D annually through contract research, laboratory management and technology commercialization.
Headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, Battelle oversees 22,000 employees in more than 130 locations worldwide, including eight national laboratories for which Battelle has a significant management role on behalf of the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and the United Kingdom.
