Welcome to Fluor Federal Services' Office in Richland, Washington

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 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 southeastern 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.

From October 1, 1996 through September 30, 2008 Fluor (as Fluor Hanford) was a prime contractor to 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 used nuclear fuel; cleaning up the site’s contaminated groundwater; and retrieving and preparing transuranic (TRU) waste for shipment and disposal off site. Fluor also maintained the site’s infrastructure; provided security and fire protection; and operated the Volpentest HAMMER Training and Education Center.

On October 1, 2008, Fluor’s work scope was split. The technical scope was 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 the Mission Support Alliance (MSA) assumed Fluor’s remaining scope: 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.

During the company’s 13-year tenure as a Hanford prime contractor, Fluor treated 3 billion gallons of contaminated ground water spanning 100 square miles; cleaned up 845,000 cubic yards of radioactive waste and 5 million cubic yards of contaminated soil; retrieved 7,300 cubic meters and shipped 3,092 cubic meters of contact-handled TRU waste to the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant in New Mexico; placed 209 meters of remote-handled TRU waste in storage; dispositioned 2,100 metric tons of spent nuclear fuel; and removed 65 million curies of radioactive material from areas less than a mile from Richland’s city limits.
