Shaw Environmental & Infrastructure bags two Navy contracts
Feb '08
The Shaw Group Inc announced that its Environmental & Infrastructure Group has been awarded task orders by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southwest Division and the Naval Facilities Engineering Service Center (NFESC) in Port Hueneme, Calif.

The first task order, awarded under Shaw's NAVFAC Southwest Environmental Multiple Award Construction Contract, is for services at Marine Corps Air Station El Toro in Southern California, which was decommissioned in 1999 under the Base Realignment and Closure program.

As part of the site's Installation Restoration Program, Shaw will be responsible for designing and constructing landfill caps at two major landfills that were used to dispose of incinerator ash, solvents and oily wastes.

The value of Shaw's three-year contract, which has been included in the company's previously announced backlog, was not disclosed.

Shaw's second task order, awarded under its worldwide NFESC Navy Fuels prime contract, is for cleaning, inspecting and repairing 17 tanks located within fueling facilities at San Clemente Island, North Island and the San Diego Fleet and Industrial Supply Center, in California.

The value of Shaw's one-year contract, which has been included in the company's previously announced backlog, was not disclosed.

"As an environmental remediation contractor of choice with the Navy for more than 14 years, Shaw brings extensive knowledge and experience in site closure activities to ensure land is viable for long-term, sustainable use," said Ronald W. Oakley, president of Shaw's Environmental & Infrastructure Group.

"Additionally, the contract with the Navy Engineering Service Center provides the opportunity for Shaw to continue its extensive environmental work at the three facilities, which further strengthens our position in the fuels market."
