The company hired by the Energy Department to clean up legacy waste at the Los Alamos National Laboratory said it is now ready to begin what it was hired to do.

Tuesday, the contractor, N3B, announced that it had finished with the contract’s transition phase.

Since December, N3B was busy coordinating with the Department of Energy, inspecting cleanup areas, establishing security and safety protocols and hiring workers as part of the transition phase.

The Department of Energy hired contractor N3B to clean up waste generated by the laboratory through 1999 in December 2017. N3B has hired 310 people for the $1.39 billion cleanup contract.

Over 230 of those workers have already been working on legacy cleanup at the Los Alamos National Laboratory or have had prior work experience at LANL.

“We put together a great team, with a vast amount of experience in cleanup from around the DOE complex,” said Nick Lombardo, N3B president and program manager. “We bring that nationwide knowledge to bear at LANL. I am proud of my management team for the work they have done to get us to this point and ready to start the important work of EM-LA (Environmental Management field office).”

Lombardo also appreciated the help N3B received from the LANL contractor that runs the lab, Los Alamos National Security.
