Fluor-B&W Portsmouth LLC (Fluor-B&W) will accept applications for paid summer internships from eligible college students through March 31, 2014.
Now in its fourth year, Fluor-B&W’s program offers the internships doing work with experienced professionals on cleanup of the former Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant at the Department of Energy Portsmouth Site in Piketon. Fluor-B&W is the DOE contractor for the decontamination and decommissioning of Cold War-era facilities no longer in use.
