COLUMBUS, OH -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/14 -- Battelle has won a contract from the United States Navy to help with environmental restoration projects in the Pacific Northwest. The Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract has a one-year base period with four option years and a total ceiling of $30 million.
During the past two decades, Battelle experts have worked with the U.S. government and commercial clients to ensure that environmental remediation work is done to the highest standards. Work under this contract for the Navy Facilities Engineering Command Northwest (NAVFAC) will begin immediately.
"We'll characterize and assess potential issues that have been identified, and recommend and implement solutions," said Mark Curran, Manager of Battelle's Environmental Solutions & Services Business Line. "An area we emphasize is optimization. You can pull a lot of remediation technologies off the shelf, but we can optimize their application by applying the correct solution to the specific issues."
The Department of Defense operates the properties where Battelle will work -- mainly in the States of Washington and Alaska. However, work may also be performed anywhere within the NAVFAC area of responsibility, including Oregon, Montana, Idaho and Wyoming. Investigations will be done to see if there is a contamination issue that may have environmental impact.
Additional work also may be completed under the contract, such as compliance, planning, and studies or restoration of natural resources in support of the environmental restoration program or to support Navy activities. The exact location of the requirements will be designated by individual task orders. The contract will be managed by Russ Sirabian (Program Manager) and Travis Williamson (Deputy Program Manager).
"We are very enthusiastic about having the opportunity to work closely with clients from NAVFAC Northwest to help them solve problems at their sites and advance their environmental restoration program," said Russ Sirabian. "They have challenging issues and we have a great team of technical experts that can help them achieve their goals in the most cost effective and sustainable manner."
Every day, the people of Battelle apply science and technology to solving what matters most. At major technology centers and national laboratories around the world, Battelle conducts research and development, designs and manufactures products, and delivers critical services for government and commercial customers. Headquartered in Columbus, Ohio since its founding in 1929, Battelle serves the national security, health and life sciences, and energy and environmental industries.

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, will provide an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data profes...
