NRC NQA-1 Site

URENCO USA - Gas Centrifuge Uranium Enrichment Facility

Participating as an owner of H-Y Tech Construction Services LLC, JBH dedicated administrative, field, and safety management personnel to the work at the gas centrifuge uranium enrichment facility in Eunice, NM, a multi-billion dollar facility operating under a Nuclear Quality Assurance-1 (NQA-1) designation. JBH spent over three years on the site dedicating a Project Director, Architectural Superintendent/Project Manager, Mechanical Superintendent, and Safety Manager  to support multiple individual contracts. JBH personnel contributed to the overall site safety statistics which reached a top industrial safety record, including 17.7million man-hours worked without a single construction related lost-time injury as reported by URENCO*. JBH provided significant mechanical, process piping, plumbing, and architectural support to the overall site inclusive of the ground-up construction of several buildings on site and installation of key infrastructure including site utilities. Additional key contributions were the installation of 12 closed circuit hybrid cooling towers each approximately 268 tons in capacity, and the installation of a centrifuge cooling water system including installation and hook-up of tower water for the centrifuge building.

Fabrication Contribution: The JBH pipe and sheet metal fabrication facilities contributed heavily to this project supporting orders for pre-fabricated stainless steel, carbon, structural steel and additional systems for integration on site.
