B&W has been at the forefront of nuclear innovation since the dawn of nuclear power. From powering New York City’s first subway to developing the B&W mPower™ small modular reactor, B&W has been a strong and innovative name in the nuclear industry. Today, we’re creating new opportunities by designing, testing and manufacturing advanced nuclear components across our established North American infrastructure. It all started when at the end of WWII, Admiral Rickover authorized B&W Canada to transfer US Navy steam generator technology to the Canadian Government; which became the starting point for B&W’s CANDU™ steam generators.
Cavendish Nuclear is delivering Britain’s most ambitious nuclear decommissioning project (totaling $2.56 billion)–the complete site clearance by 2023 of the nation’s fast breeder reactor site at Dounreay in the Scottish Highlands. Our innovation is reducing the customer’s closure timescale by 16 years and yielding savings of more than $1.5 billion on previous estimates. We are accelerating the clean-out and removal of sodium-cooled reactors, bringing new decommissioning techniques to the fuel cycle facilities that will reduce dose rates to workers and managing the removal of the site’s high security fuel inventory.
With a management role at seven United States laboratories, six for the Department of Energy and one for the Department of Homeland Security, Battelle is solving what matters most by driving scientific discovery and inspiring innovation. Our approach to laboratory management reflects our commitment to safe and secure operations and a commitment to community and other key stakeholder relationships. Because of our reach across multiple laboratories, Battelle is able to create “Communities of Practice” to share what we have learned across the network to develop future lab leadership to ensure breakthroughs for decades to come.
