U.S. Department of Energy Awards Tetra Tech Joint Venture $400 Million Contract
PASADENA, Calif.- Tetra Tech, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTEK) announced today that its joint venture with Sealaska Technical Services was selected to provide design-build services to the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). Under the Design, Integration, Construction, Communication, and Engineering (DICCE) contract, the joint venture will share in the $400-million contract ceiling over seven years.
The DICCE contract is administered by the NNSA Office of Nuclear Smuggling Detection and Deterrence (NSDD), which strengthens the capabilities and commitment of U.S. partner countries to deter, detect, and interdict illicit trafficking of nuclear and other radioactive materials within the interiors of partner countries, across international borders, and through the global maritime shipping system.
The joint venture team will provide design-build services to support the installation and deployment of fixed and mobile radiation detection systems and associated infrastructure at border checkpoints, airports, seaports, internal country locations, and maritime borders outside of the United States.
“Tetra Tech has provided engineering design and installation services to the NSDD office since 2002,” said Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech’s Chairman and CEO. “We look forward to working with our joint venture partner to continue supporting the NNSA in this important program.”
