Bechtel-Led Team Awarded Contract for Y-12/Pantex

Team Will Manage and Operate Facilities Within Nuclear Security Enterprise

RESTON, Va., Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A Bechtel-led team was selected today by the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) to manage and operate the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, Tenn., and the Pantex Plant in Amarillo, Texas. Consolidated Nuclear Security, LLC (CNS), a team that includes Bechtel National, Inc. (BNI), Lockheed Martin, ATK, and SOC, will manage and operate the facilities within NNSA's Nuclear Security Enterprise. The five-year contract with NNSA includes options that may extend the contract term up to an additional five years, based on performance.

"The CNS team brings the right blend of leadership, new perspective, proven approaches, and NNSA knowledge," said Craig Albert, president of Bechtel's government services business. "This builds on our successful partnership with NNSA and we are pleased to lead the team selected to manage this work."

Both Y-12 and Pantex are charged with maintaining the safety, security, reliability, and effectiveness of the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile.  Y-12 has an emphasis on the processing and storage of uranium and development of technologies associated with those activities. It also reduces the global threat posed by nuclear proliferation and terrorism. Pantex's mission includes providing assembly and dis-assembly operations.

"We are honored to have the opportunity to carry out this work in support of NNSA," said Jim Haynes, CNS president and CEO. "We are committed to delivering our work to the highest standards of safety, security, and efficiency. We are also pleased to be working with our partners Lockheed Martin, ATK, and SOC who are leaders in their industries." 

Bechtel has a proven track record at both Y-12 and Pantex. The company also provides management and operations for NNSA at Los Alamos National Laboratory and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, two of the U.S. government's premier research and development institutions. Over its history, Bechtel has successfully led integration efforts as the contractor for large, complex projects focused on national security, environmental stewardship, and nuclear power.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
