WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (DOE/NNSA) announced Monday it has selected Nuclear Production One, LLC (NPOne) for the Management and Operating (M&O) contract for the Y-12 National Security Complex and Pantex Plant at Oak Ridge, Tenn., and Amarillo, Texas, respectively.
“For over 40 years, the Pantex Plant in Amarillo, Texas has been the Nation’s primary nuclear weapon assembly, disassembly, and life-extension center. The Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, Tennessee has been strengthening our national security and reducing the global threat from weapons of mass destruction since 1943,” NNSA Administrator Jill Hruby said. “I look forward to NPOne helping us accomplish our mission.”
The contract includes a four-month transition period starting in December 2021 and a five-year base period with five, one-year options, for a total contract period of up to 10 years if all options are exercised. The estimated value of the contract is $2.8 billion annually.
