Tetra Tech Awarded Feasibility Study for Environmental Remediation Project at Cameco's Port Hope Conversion Facility09:00 EDT Wednesday, June 27, 2012 PASADENA, Calif. (Business Wire) -- Tetra Tech, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTEK) announced today that it has been awarded a contract to complete the feasibility study for a major remediation project in Port Hope, Ontario, Canada. The remediation effort is a cornerstone of the “Vision in Motion” project being conducted by Cameco Corporation, one of the world's largest uranium producers. Following the satisfactory completion of the feasibility study, Cameco plans to enter into an engineering-procurement-construction management (EPCM) contract for the remediation and construction phase. The value of the feasibility study was not disclosed. The Vision in Motion program involves the removal of old and under-utilized buildings, contaminated soil and stored wastes as well as the construction of new buildings at Cameco's Port Hope Conversion Facility. Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech's Chairman and CEO, said, “We are pleased to have the opportunity to help Cameco clean up, modernize, and improve the appearance of the Port Hope Conversion Facility, in accordance with strict environmental standards and the desires of the local community and other stakeholders.” Vision in Motion will require transferring approximately 150,000 cubic metres of material to a government-run long-term waste management facility. The feasibility study is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2012, with EPCM implementation beginning in 2013.
