B&W Y-12, L.L.C., (hereafter known as Y-12; for additional company information, see website www.y12.doe.gov (http://www.y12.doe.gov/>),
acting under its Prime Contract No. DE-AC05-00OR22800 with the United States Department of Energy (DOE), will be hosting a Suppliers Outreach Event on March 9-10, 2010 at the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
Uranium Processing Facility
The Uranium Processing Facility (UPF) is projected to cost between $1.4 to $3.5 billion. The facility will replace the nation's existing enriched uranium processing facilities, built at the Y-12 National Security Complex during the World War II Manhattan Project.
Built under the direction of the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), the nation's new Uranium Processing Facility will be a modern manufacturing facility designed and constructed for health, safety, security and operations efficiency.
The Uranium Processing Facility is a federally funded project and is an integral part of the National Nuclear Security Administration's complex transformation efforts.
The March 9-10, 2010 Suppliers Outreach Forum will provide an excellent opportunity for suppliers to learn about current and upcoming UPF proposals and procurement needs, and the requirements for working on the UPF project. The forum will provide in-depth information and insight into Nuclear Quality Assurance program requirements applicable to both government and commercial nuclear industry sectors. In addition, participants can interact directly with Y-12's senior executives, project managers and procurement personnel working on the Uranium Processing Facility project.
Who Should Attend
The 2010 Y-12 Supplier Outreach Event provides an excellent opportunity for companies interested in working for Y-12 to gain insights into the current and future markets for products and services and requirements to enter or to continue to work on nuclear projects at Y-12.
