Nuclear Operations and Nuclear Safety Projects
Helping Y-12 meet “lean” goals
Ingenium provides Operational Engineering, Technical, and Readiness Support Services to the HEUMF and other Y-12 nuclear facilities. Ingenium managed project Process Engineering Team for the new Highly Enriched Uranium Materials Facility (HEUMF) located at Y-12 Nuclear Complex in Oak Ridge, TN. As part of this project, Ingenium implemented a new uranium process activity, leading to a successful completion of the design, construction, operational testing and resultant NNSA Operational Readiness Review that was under budget and ahead of schedule.
Providing technical analysis to ensure fissile materials are processed, stored, transferred, and handled safely so that personnel and property are protected. Conducting surveillances, inspections, walkthroughs, appraisals, or audits of fissile material operations to ensure compliance with approvals. Ensuring the configuration management program preserves the SB; confirming changes proposed are properly identified, developed, revised, approved, implemented, and documented.
This includes the implementation of required Safety Management Programs (e.g., Nuclear Criticality Safety, Radiological Control, Industrial Hygiene, Fire Protection, Emergency Management, etc.), as appropriate, in facilities under their authority and as outlined, summarized, and described in the associated SB documents.
This includes meeting the requirements of DOE Order 420.2C and the BNL Standards Based Management System (SBMS) Accelerator Safety Subject Area and doing so in a way that is consistent with the guidance provided in DOE Guide 420.2-1 and DOE Guide 420.2-1A.
