Savannah River Site Contract
BWXT joint venture Savannah River Mission Completion, LLC recently completed transition of the liquid waste program into the Integrated Mission Completion Contract (IMCC) for the U.S. Department of Energy at the 310-square-mile Savannah River Site. A month after assuming responsibility for the liquid waste program, the Salt Waste Processing Facility (SWPF) was successfully transitioned into the IMCC. The contract is estimated at $21 billion over a 10-year ordering period for operating facilities for liquid waste stabilization/disposition, including work at the SWPF, as well as potential future nuclear materials management and stabilization scope.
Tc-99m Generator Project
BWXT completed the installation of the first phase of the target delivery system this month and has completed the installation, testing and commissioning of the radiopharmaceutical production equipment. Next week we plan to begin final qualification runs supporting registration batches required for a comprehensive FDA submittal. The project team has encountered some minor delays related to the supply chain as well as process and equipment modifications. As a result, the FDA submission has been slightly delayed from our prior timing guidance, but remains imminent.
Project Pele Program
BWXT also completed its submission to the U.S. Department of Defense Strategic Capabilities Office for phase 2 of its Project Pele program to build an operating and transportable microreactor prototype. This effort is designed to leverage state-of-the-art technologies and recent advances in nuclear engineering to deliver an inherently safe nuclear reactor for deployment in remote or challenging locations. BWXT has previously been selected for two rounds of funding and participation in the program. This phase 2 award announcement is expected in the summer of 2022.
