In May 2013, Energy Capital acquired EnergySolutions, Inc., a diversified global provider of low-level nuclear waste management and services to government and commercial customers, for approximately $1.2 billion in a take-private transaction. As a private company, EnergySolutions sold its government and services businesses to better align its focus U.S. nuclear power plants’ on-going waste disposal and end-of-life decommissioning needs.

EnergySolutions owns, operates and maintains a network of environmental infrastructure assets critical to the U.S. nuclear industry that are among the largest commercial disposal facilities, processing facilities and logistics and transportation businesses for low-level radioactive waste in the United States. Virtually all nuclear plants in the U.S. and the U.S. Department of Energy use the company service offerings, and the company is active in multiple nuclear plant decomissionings, including Zion Nuclear Power Plant and San Onofre Nuclear Generation Station.
