Curtiss-Wright Corp has secured contracts worth US$11 million from Savannah River Remediation LLC for submersible mixer and transfer pumps for the processing and remediation of nuclear waste materials.
The Curtiss-Wright equipment will be installed in large underground tanks at the Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site to prepare the radioactive waste for processing, and transfer it to on-site remediation facilities. Savannah River Remediation LLC is the site’s liquid waste operations contractor.
The Curtiss-Wright Flow Control segment will design and supply the equipment from its facility in Cheswick, Pennsylvania. The first delivery is scheduled for November 2010. “We are pleased to support this important environmental program with our advanced pumping technologies,” said Martin Benante, chief executive officer and chairman of Curtiss-Wright Corp.
The contracts were funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
