UniTech Services Group Awarded B.O.A., Announces Plans to Support U.S. Nuclear Reactor Decommissioning Projects
ETEC member UniTech Services Group has announced the launch of new decommissioning support services to current and future nuclear reactor decommissioning sites in the United States. These new services will leverage the capabilities of UniTech’s Oak Ridge Service Center in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
DOE’s Oak Ridge Office of Environmental Management (OREM) enters a new chapter in cleanup this year that will transform the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and Y-12 National Security Complex (Y-12) and support the important missions at those sites.
More than ever before, the landscape of Pantex and Y-12 is changing. In FY 2020 alone, 46 infrastructure projects were completed, and an impressive 21 facilities (11 at Pantex and 10 at Y-12) were demolished. It is truly a team effort between organizations including Projects, Procurement, Engineering, Construction Management, and the contractor who work hand in hand to overcome issues and get these buildings down. New behind the scenes challenges for FY 2021 demolitions are already being reviewed for another 21 planned demolitions next year and more than 25 in FY 2023.
EM recently awarded Oak Ridge cleanup contractor UCOR $28 million for its performance from April 2020 through September 2020, amounting to 98% of the available fee for the evaluation period. The Oak Ridge Office of Environmental Management (OREM) issued its fee determination scorecard for UCOR for the second six-month period of fiscal 2020 after completing its evaluation of the contractor.
