PACRO Signs Deal for USEC Site Study
PADUCAH, KY - Members of the Paducah Area Community Reuse Organization voted Wednesday to sign a $200,000 contract with Fluor Federal Services to conduct a study at the site of the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant.
The South Carolina-based company will work with the U.S. Department of Energy for the next six months on a much-anticipated reuse plan for the site.
Paducah Economic Development officials first spoke of hiring Fluor at a July 31 PACRO meeting. According to the Paducah Sun, the contract was made official at Wednesday's meeting. The contract states that Fluor will finish the work in three phases over six months.
The company will conduct a study designed to find future possibilities for reuse of the plant. The study includes an evaluation of the site to find value for potential future industrial clients.
