S&K Logistics Services earns support contract at SRS nuclear facility
Twenty five miles south of Augusta, Georgia, sits the Savannah River Site, a nuclear reservation that covers 310 square miles and employs more than 10,000 people. The Site is currently managed by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
The DOE has selected S&K Logistics Services (SKLS) and it’s partner, Pro2Serve, Inc., to provide a variety of program support services at the site.
The Savannah River Site was constructed during the early 1950s to produce the basic materials used in the fabrication of nuclear weapons, primarily tritium and plutonium-239, in support of the nation’s defense programs. Five reactors were built to produce these materials. Also built were a number of support facilities including two chemical separations plants, a heavy water extraction plant, a nuclear fuel and target fabrication facility, a tritium extraction facility and waste management facilities.

“This is the first time S&K Logistics Services has worked with the Savannah River Site. Our teams will support existing projects, initiatives, operation activities, and future Site missions,” said Dave Rariden, SKLS President. “Additionally, SKLS and Pro2Serve will be establishing a new and proprietary software system for DOE use in forecasting, tracking, analysis, and reporting of ongoing DOE projects at the Site.”
Savannah River Site’s mission is to safely and efficiently operate the Site, protect public health and the environment while supporting the nation’s nuclear deterrent, and the transformation of the Site for future use. The Site now focuses on three business segments in environmental stewardship, national security, and clean energy. (Source: http://www.srs.gov/)
Pro2Serve is a long standing teammate with S&K. The company has exceptional expertise and reputation and has worked side by side with S&K Aerospace, LLC on projects like the Moab Uranium Mill Tailings Remedial Action Contract in Utah.
Dave expressed his thanks to SKLS staff in helping get the contract off to a smooth start. “It was a great team effort and resulted in the seamless transition from the incumbent contract into the new contract in less than a week.”
Sherri Robinson, the Contracting Officer with the DOE, stated that she was impressed by the team of experts S&K assembled to support this effort, and was “especially pleased by the rapid and seamless transition.”
