NEWPORT NEWS, Va., June 26, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE:HII) announced today that its Stoller Newport News Nuclear (SN3) subsidiary, together with contract partner Wastren Advantage Inc., was awarded a two-year extension to continue disposal operations at the Environmental Restoration Disposal Facility on the U.S. Department of Energy’s Hanford Site in Washington.

The total contract, valued at up to $65 million, will expire in September 2017. Washington Closure Hanford (WCH), the awarding agency, operates the Environmental Restoration Disposal Facility for the Department of Energy.

“We are extremely pleased the WCH has chosen to exercise the first option period of our contract,” said SN3 President Nick Lombardo. “We believe this reflects the value we have provided to the Hanford Site for safe and compliant operations.”

In the 1940s, the Hanford Site was used to produce plutonium for weapons production processes that left solid and liquid wastes, posing a risk to the local environment. In 1989, the Department of Energy, Environmental Protection Agency and Washington State Department of Ecology entered into a legally binding accord, the Tri-Party Agreement, to clean up the Hanford Site.

Formerly known as Stoller, the company has had a presence at the Hanford Site for more than 12 years. SN3 is now a full-service nuclear operations and environmental services company that combines the expertise of HII’s S.M. Stoller Corp. and Newport News Nuclear subsidiaries.

NEWPORT NEWS, Va., March 20, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — UniversalPegasus International (UPI), a subsidiary of Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE:HII), is participating in the 2015 East Africa Trade Mission to Mozambique and Tanzania from March 18-26. Attending the mission on behalf of UPI is Tony Stead, UPI’s business development manager for the U.K.

It is organized by Scottish Development International (SDI), the international arm of Scottish Enterprise, and is supported by the U.K. Trade and Investment (UKTI) and Aberdeen City Council.

“East Africa is a pioneering market, and with 150 trillion cubic feet of gas discovered off the East Africa coast in deep water, Scotland’s unrivaled deep water subsea delivery and offshore experience makes us the perfect partner to help bring it into production,” said Gary Soper, SDI’s regional manager in Africa.

UPI has performed work in more than 20 countries and has offices in Aberdeen and London. The company is currently supporting a multinational oil and gas company with a project in Mozambique.

“Working with SDI, we aim to increase our activity in East Africa since it’s a key market,” Stead said. “Attending missions such as this is a crucial part of helping us strengthen our global presence, particularly in a region with such potential. In order to augment the East African oil and gas industry, the region will need expanded education, training and capacity building. UPI hopes to work with other Scottish leaders in business and academia to help with this expansion.”

Representing UPI, Stead is one of 24 representatives from Scottish oil and gas companies, educational groups and government organizations to meet with East African representatives at the mission.

As UPI’s business manager located in London, Stead focuses on international business and looks to bolster the company’s access to the global market.

Stead works alongside Gavin Stevenson, the company’s U.K. managing director, who has been with the U.K. operation since its inception more than 20 years ago. Africa has been a key market since this beginning.
