The Energy Department’s Office of Environmental Management on Tuesday released a request for information and sources sought inquiry for stack dismantlement at the Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island, N.Y.
The Environmental Management office is planning an upcoming solicitation for a contractor to decommission, tear down, and conduct site clearance for the High Flux Beam Reactor (HFBR) and related buildings at Brookhaven. The small research reactor operated from 1965 through 1996, when a tritium leak was discovered when the facility shut down for refueling.
Since it was permanently shut down in 1999, the research reactor has undergone stabilization and partial decommissioning, according to the Brookhaven website.
The Energy Department is seeking input from interested vendors with the particular skills needed for major parts of the project.
“Key market research goals include identifying and minimizing barriers to competition, evaluating small business capabilities, identifying risks, estimating price, evaluating specific methods for performance, and identifying appropriate RFP/contract terms and conditions,” according the DOE press release, which did not include a deadline date for submitting responses.
