AREVA Federal Services, an AREVA subsidiary, has been selected to provide the engineering, construction, and commissioning of a remote-handled low-level waste disposal facility at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL). AREVA was awarded this contract worth more than $30 million from Battelle Energy Alliance, which manages the INL on behalf of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

This new facility will provide additional storage capacity for low-level waste canisters resulting from the operations of the DOE’s research programs. The facility will host administration and maintenance buildings, as well as 225 concrete vaults located 25 feet underground to store the canisters.
