CB&I Announces Contract Orders for Nuclear Power Plant Modifications and Upgrades

July 17, 2014

CB&I (NYSE:CBI) announced it has been awarded contract orders by Entergy Operations, Inc. valued in excess of $100 million for project and construction management services related to the implementation of Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) ordered modifications and upgrades at multiple nuclear energy facilities throughout the U.S.

"These contract orders underscore CB&I's expertise and capabilities in both nuclear maintenance and construction as well as our commitment to the nuclear power business," said Patrick K. Mullen, President of CB&I's Engineering, Construction and Maintenance operating group.
