INL is managed by BEA for the US Department of Energy (DOE)'s Office of Nuclear Energy.

Contract Details

Key INL initiatives during the term of the contract extension will include providing world-class nuclear science and technology capabilities to the nation, continuing research and development (R&D) on advanced reactor designs, improving upon INL's world-leading cyber security capabilities and expertise, and developing integrated energy systems to stabilize the power grid.

The DOE officially approved the contract modification that enabled the five-year extension in April 2018. The DOE originally awarded BEA the management contract in November 2004, and with this most recent extension, BEA will operate and manage INL through September 30, 2024.

The Five-Year Contract Extension Indicates the DOE's Continued Confidence in BWXT's JV

Commenting on the announcement, Rex D. Geveden, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of BWXT, stated that this five-year contract extension indicates the DOE's continued confidence in the Company's JV and affords it the opportunity to continue supporting its critical missions. Geveden added that INL is a premier energy research institution, and the Company's continued affiliation is both a business success and a point of pride.

BWXT's Recent Contract from the DOE

On April 30, 2018, the Company's subsidiary, BWXT Nuclear Energy, Inc., was awarded $5.4 million in cost-sharing funds from the DOE for an advanced nuclear technology development initiative. The other financial details of the deal remained undisclosed. In cooperation with Oak Ridge National Laboratory, BWXT would use its unique capabilities and facilities to develop the ability to implement additive materials manufacturing to the fabrication process for nuclear components and sub-components, which would yield acceptable material structure and strength that can be accepted by the national code organizations and the regulator. The selections were the first under the DOE's Office of Nuclear Energy's ‘US Industry Opportunities for Advanced Nuclear Technology Development' funding opportunity announcement.
