The MOX Project is achieving a commendable combination of high-quality work, extensive safety record, and recognized environmental stewardship.
Starting off the accolades, the latest Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) inspection report confirmed that the MOX Project achieved three consecutive quarters with no violations.
As quoted in an Aiken Standard article, Kelly Trice, president and CEO of CB&I AREVA MOX Services, said,
“This report is more good news for the MOX project, as the NRC certifies again that we are building this important nonproliferation project safely and in compliance with all strict NRC regulations. We have a dedicated workforce that values safety and quality as part of a job well done, and our strong internal inspection program conducts rigorous tests and inspections for all construction processes.”
This latest recognition follows the Commission’s extensive annual evaluation in March, when the MOX Project earned the NRC’s highest overall rating.
These MOX Project successes are a direct result of nearly 1,500 workers’ individual commitments to a quality job and surpassing 19,000,000 consecutive work hours without a lost workday due to injury. For a worksite of this size and complexity, this safety focus is especially noteworthy.
And, the accomplishments don’t stop there …
Also noted in the article, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control recognized CB&I AREVA MOX Services for outstanding environmental leadership and continuous improvement toward environmental objectives. This led the program’s Advisory Committee to renew CB&I AREVA MOX Services’ membership on the South Carolina Environmental Excellence Program (SCEEP).
