NNSA has completed a major capital improvement project that has resulted in critical infrastructure upgrades to two key production buildings at the Y-12 National Security Complex. NNSA finished the $75.7 million project nearly 11 months ahead of the construction completion schedule and approximately $5.6 million under budget.
The Nuclear Facilities Risk Reduction project included upgrades to mechanical, electrical, ventilation, and heating/cooling systems for enriched uranium operations in Buildings 9212 and 9204-2E. The project began in 2008, when 10 tasks were identified to make those facilities safer for operations. The project was originally scheduled for completion in 2016.
