US-based BWX Technologies (BWXT) announced on 31 March that the US Naval Nuclear Propulsion Programme exercised contract options in Q1 2020 with BWXT’s subsidiary Nuclear Fuel Services (NFS) totalling approximately $128 million for fuel manufacturing work in support of US nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers. Work under this 12-month contract is expected to begin later this year.

NFS is a subsidiary of BWXT Nuclear Operations Group, Inc. (NOG), which provides a range of nuclear components and services. NFS's offerings include the manufacture of reactor components for US Navy submarines and aircraft carriers, as well as other nuclear and non-nuclear research and development, and component production.

NFS is one of only two Category I nuclear facilities licensed by the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to store and process highly enriched uranium. The other Category I facility is BWXT’s facility in Lynchburg, Virginia.

NFS employs a full-time workforce of approximately 1100 people, including long-term contractors and security personnel.
