A joint venture of Concurrent Technologies Corp. and Battelle has received the first task order to provide support to the National Defense Center for Environmental Excellence under a potential five-year, $122.5 million contract the U.S. Army awarded in April.
National Defense Energy & Environmental Alliance will develop test data designed to qualify citric acid passivation of stainless steel-based aircraft components under the task order worth approximately $164,000, the joint venture said Thursday.
The CTC-Battelle joint venture will perform work over a period of 12 months as part of the task order.
“We’re pleased that we won the first task order issued under the recently announced NDCEE contract,” said Ed Sheehan, CTC president and CEO.
National Defense Energy & Environmental Alliance is one of the four companies that won spots on the Army’s NDCEE indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.
The Defense Department formed NDCEE to help address the department’s environmental, health, energy, sustainability and safety requirements through research, demonstration and deployment of technology systems.
