Welcome to Fluor Federal Services - Richland Office
Fluor Federal Services’ (FFS) Richland office is a business operation of Fluor Federal Services, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR). FFS Richland employees are proud to support government projects locally at Hanford, as well as nationally, and internationally.
The 585-square-mile Hanford site is located on the Columbia River in Washington state. A plutonium-production complex with nine nuclear reactors and associated processing facilities, Hanford played a pivotal role in the nation’s defense for more than 40 years, beginning with the Manhattan Project in the 1940s. Today, under the direction of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Hanford is engaged in one of the world’s largest cleanup projects, with multiple technical, political, financial, and cultural challenges.
From October 1, 1996 through September 30, 2008 Fluor (as Fluor Hanford) was a prime contractor to the DOE’s Richland Operations Office for a major portion of the site. In this role, Fluor managed cleanup activities that included dismantling former nuclear-processing facilities; retrieving and processing 2,300 tons of used nuclear fuel; cleaning up the site’s contaminated groundwater; retrieving and preparing transuranic (TRU) waste for shipment and disposal off site; maintaining the site’s infrastructure; providing security and fire protection; and operating the Volpentest HAMMER Training and Education Center.
On October 1, 2008, Fluor’s role at Hanford changed. Fluor’s work was split, with the technical scope being assigned to the incoming Plateau Remediation Contractor. The CH2M HILL Plateau Remediation Company (CHPRC) is now spearheading much of the cleanup work associated with former nuclear-processing facilities, TRU waste, and contaminated groundwater. Fluor is a fee-sharing subcontractor to the CHPRC.
The scope involving site-wide services remained with Fluor until August 24, 2009, when a new contractor, the Mission Support Alliance (MSA), assumed Fluor’s remaining scope at Hanford: security; fire protection; information technology; facilities and land management; water, sewer, and electrical maintenance; custodial services; crane and rigging; fleet services; and management of HAMMER.
