BWXT Subsidiary Gets DOE Contract for Uranium Fuel Production

The Department of Energy has selected BWX Technologies’ Nuclear Operations Group subsidiary to provide a uranium-based fuel under a $3.6M contract.

DOE’s National Nuclear Security Administration will use the uranium-molybdenum alloy High Assay Low Enriched Uranium, or U-Mo HALEU, to replace high-enriched uranium currently used in research reactors, BWXT said Tuesday.

The contractor will decommission and modify a facility in Lynchburg, Va., to support the U-Mo HALEU fuel’s production. BWXT expects to commence production by 2024.
