The Arctic Military Environmental Cooperation (AMEC) Program was a joint program between the U.S., Russia, and Norway that supported the treatment, management, and disposal of nuclear and non-nuclear waste produced in northwest Russia during the dismantlement of Russian Navy nuclear submarines. The effort focused on the design, fabrication, and construction of low-level radiological waste handling, packaging, storage systems, and facilities.
In coordination with the Russian Navy and Norwegian government, TMC designed and manufactured transportable nuclear waste processing facilities for the safe decommissioning of Russian Navy submarines and their reactors. Once the waste was contained, TMC managed the transport across Russia for final storage.
TMC provided the complete range of design, program management, and integration services: risk, scope, and cost management, subcontractor management, construction management, procurement and shipping, logistics, translation and interpretation, international conference management, and acceptance testing. Specifically, TMC led multi-country contract negotiations and led the procurement of materials need to build the system. TMC also led the coordination of getting all of these materials to the remote location.
