Battelle Wins Navy Environmental Support Services Contract

Battelle has been selected to continue to support the United States Navy for the next five years with environmental program support and technology transfer services. The Environmental Security Technology Services (ESTS) contract is an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract with a maximum value of $99.5 million.

ESTS continues Battelle’s 25-year history of environmental support for the Department of Defense (DoD) and is the fifth  consecutive contract to be awarded to Battelle.

“We’re thrilled and honored to continue our long history of working with the Department of Defense to help meet their greatest environmental and sustainability challenges,” said Russell Sirabian, Program Manager for the contract. “Our unique capability in integrating research and development, technology transfer and remedy selection and optimization provides innovative and technically sound solutions to key challenges.”  

The contract supports the environmental stewardship mission of the Department of Navy (DON) and the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) program. The work may include technology implementation, technical consultation, training, strategy development, research and administrative services. While work may occur at various local and international Navy and Marine Corps installations and other government facilities worldwide, the contract vehicle will primarily be used to support Navy and Marine Corps environmental programs within the U.S.

Battelle has a long and rich history of performing this type of work for the U.S. government, military and private industry. With cross-disciplinary environmental service teams, we develop and apply innovative, cost-effective methods and technologies to protect human health and the environment and restore value to our greatest natural resources.

Over the last 25 years, Battelle has successfully completed numerous environmental projects for the U.S. Navy and DoD to help them reach their environmental goals in a cost-effective manner. Prior work spans site assessment, remedy selection and optimization, long-term monitoring and site closure. Battelle’s internal research programs give us a unique capability to find and apply new methods to solve the difficult environmental challenges encountered on military bases. Battelle continually reinvests in internal programs that can be leveraged to support our clients. Current internal projects include research in emerging contaminants, proteomic and metagenomic monitoring methods, and the use of fungal enzymes for bioremediation. We also have extensive experience in technology transfer programs, including selection, optimization, scale up and training programs.

Key projects that are expected to continue include support of compliance and sustainability programs at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center (MCAGCC) in Twentynine Palms, CA; investigation and remediation of perfluorinated alkylated substances (PFAs) at the former Naval Air Warfare Center (NAWC) in Warminster, PA; research into application of innovative technologies; as well as development of training and technology transfer tools and other challenging projects.
