The US Department of Defense has announced that heavy lift and transport industry specialist Lampson International has secured a $7.9 million contract for land haul services work.

The contract covers the off-load, transport and placement of defuelled, decommissioned reactor compartment disposal packages from a barge at the Port of Benton in Washington state, to a burial trench at the Department of Energy's nearby Hanford site.

Some $987,000 has been allocated for work in fiscal 2020.

DOD said three offers were received during a competitive procurement process, and that work is scheduled to be completed by March 2025.
