Construction has begun on the Offsite Fabrication Facility located at the East TN Technology Park. This 100,000-square-foot facility will serve as the primary fabrication area during the construction of the Uranium Processing Facility (UPF).
The Offsite Fabrication Facility will be equipped with common fabrication equipment like shears and drill presses, and include fully-outfitted welding booths, grinding booths, a paint booth, and mobile gantry cranes.
“This structure will be important throughout the construction of UPF,” said Brian Tevis, a UPF Construction manager. “Material and equipment will be brought into the facility to allow craft employees to prepare, fabricate, and install necessary materials and equipment to complete modules, racks, skids, or glove boxes.”
