We want to congratulate Shaw AREVA MOX Services for its achievement of a record 3 million consecutive safe work hours. The MOX Fuel Fabrication Facility in South Carolina has already completed the construction of two buildings totaling almost 95,000 square feet and are working on the 500,000 square foot MOX Processing Building.
As we mentioned yesterday, AREVA is a partner with the Shaw Group for the construction of the Department of Energy’s MOX Fuel Fabrication Facility. This project, which is a major component of the National Nuclear Security Administration’s non-proliferation efforts, converts former weapons material for later use as fuel in nuclear reactors, utilizing AREVA’s recycling technology and experience.
