DOE Selects Centrus Energy Subsidiary for $115M Uranium Fuel Production Contract

Jeff Brody

A subsidiary of global nuclear fuel provider Centrus Energy received a $115M contract to demonstrate a method of producing high-assay low-enriched uranium to support the Department of Energy's research and development work on advanced nuclear reactors.

DOE asked American Centrifuge Operating to deploy a HALEU fabrication system by June 2022 and establish approaches to utilize U.S.-made technology in production efforts, according to a FedBizOpps notice posted Friday.

The contractor will also provide HALEU technology to support nuclear energy, national security and related R&D initiatives within three years as part of the sole-source award.

HALEU manufacturing process involves uranium enrichments of 5 percent to 19.75 percent and is intended for advanced reactors that do not require constant refueling.
