DOE Undersecretary for Nuclear Security and NNSA Administrator Frank Klotz visited the Y-12 National Security Complex to celebrate the successful completion of the Nuclear Facilities Risk Reduction project. The Nuclear Facilities Risk Reduction project made two of Y-12's primary production facilities safer and extended their operational lives — and it came in $5.6M under budget and 11 months ahead of schedule.
"What a terrific project. It's always great to celebrate victories," Klotz told an invited crowd of Consolidated Nuclear Security Y-12 employees who contributed to the project. "And this," he added emphatically, "is a victory."
