Parsons Corp. has been selected by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Norfolk District to deliver a new Explosive Decomposition Chamber facility at Holston Army Ammunition Plant in Kingsport, Tennessee.
The 4-year, $164 million contract is new work for the firm.
“Our team is uniquely equipped to deliver solutions for the most complex environmental challenges that our clients face,” said Jon Moretta, president of engineered systems for Parsons.
HSAAP, a government-owned, contractor-operated facility, is a major supplier of explosive materials to the Defense Department and generates explosives waste that was historically open-burned since the 1940s.
“This new facility will meet the Army’s mission of reducing environmental impacts by transitioning from the open burning explosive waste treatment process to a technology-driven closed destruction solution,” Moretta added.
