The Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, is one of six production facilities in the National Nuclear Security Administration's (NNSA's) Nuclear Security Enterprise (NSE). Y-12’s unique emphasis is the processing and storage of uranium and development of technologies associated with those activities. Decades of precision machining experience make Y-12 a production facility with capabilities unequaled nationwide.
Y-12 helps ensure a safe and effective U.S. nuclear weapons deterrent. We also retrieve and store nuclear materials, fuel the nation’s naval reactors, and perform complementary work for other government and private-sector entities.
Since 1943, Y-12 has played a key role in strengthening our country’s national security and reducing the global threat from weapons of mass destruction. Y-12 has evolved to become the complex the nation looks to for support in protecting America's future, developing innovative solutions in manufacturing technologies, prototyping, safeguards and security, technical computing and environmental stewardship.
In meeting the country’s evolving nuclear security needs, Y-12 has developed unique skills and acquired a wealth of experience that benefit the nation and world. Expertise in science-based product evaluation, materials science, precision manufacturing, applied manufacturing technology, nuclear nonproliferation, data-driven operations management, and the handling of nuclear materials has spurred scientific research and sparked innovation.
Consolidated Nuclear Security, LLC manages and operates the facility along with the Pantex Plant in Texas under a single contract from the U.S. Department of Energy/NNSA.
