Part of a reorganization of engineering, project management and construction company Bechtel is a standalone nuclear business.
Bechtel has reorganized many of its businesses into a new infrastructure global business unit.That unit has headquarters in London, and is headed up by Toby Seay. It will include civil engineering, aviation, rail and other power businesses.
The new unit, Nuclear, Security & Environmental (NS&E), which combines the company's government and commercial nuclear businesses. This move significantly strengthens Bechtel's nuclear portfolio and builds an industry-leading organization with capabilities across the lifecycle of facilities and sites for both commercial and government customers. Craig Albert, president of the government services business, will lead Bechtel NS&E.
NS&E will operate through four global business lines:
- Nuclear Security & Operations includes management of nuclear propulsion facilities, nuclear security sites, and national laboratories.
- Nuclear Power includes plant lifecycle services for the commercial nuclear industry, from new-build to steam generator replacements, plant modifications, and maintenance services.
- Defense & Security includes EPC and facility operation services for the U.S. Department of Defense, NASA, UK Ministry of Defence, and other allied governments.
Environmental includes environmental cleanup, radioactive waste processing and management, and decommissioning and demolition.
"Markets are changing and it's crucial for us to adapt so that we can continue to deliver the world-class projects customers expect from us," said Bill Dudley, Bechtel's chief executive officer.
Albert was formerly a project manager at the Hanford Waste Treatment Plant project in Richland, Washington, and began his career as design engineer at Westinghouse.
