Reston, Virginia — Porvair Filtration Group was recognized for outstanding work on projects by Bechtel's Nuclear, Security & Environmental global business unit at the Bechtel Supply Chain Recognition awards. The awards recognize subcontractors and suppliers who supported Bechtel‘s work in nuclear power, environmental clean-up, defense, and nuclear security and operations projects during 2015.
“The support of our subcontractors, suppliers, and vendors is critical to the work we do. They are an essential part of our team and perform difficult work in challenging environments,” said Barbara Rusinko, president of Bechtel's government services company. “These awards recognize those who met our high standards for quality and who went above and beyond for mission delivery.”
“Porvair Filtration Group is delighted to be recognized with this award, for its contribution to the WTP project and its goal to immobilize radioactive waste in a safe, efficient and environmentally friendly way. Our innovative radial flow HEPA filters have been proven to withstand demanding and aggressive conditions and permit the clean, safe release of off-gases from the WTP process to the environment”, said Porvair's US VP of Sales and Marketing, Trevor Waghorn.
