Description
 
The Nat. Nuclear Security Admin. (NNSA) conducts enriched uranium activities -- including producing components for nuclear warheads -- at the Y-12 National Security Complex in Tennessee. NNSA has identified key shortcomings in the Y-12 plant's current uranium operations, including rising costs due to the facility's age. In 2004, NNSA decided to build a new Uranium Processing Facility (UPF) to consolidate and modernize its enriched uranium activities. In July 2012, the UPF contractor concluded that the UPF's processing equipment would not fit into the facility as designed, and that addressing this issue -- which NNSA refers to as a space/fit issue -- would cost an additional $540 million. This report assesses (1) factors NNSA identified that contributed to the UPF space/fit issue; and (2) actions, if any, NNSA and the UPF contractor have taken to address the space/fit issue. Table. This is a print on demand report.
