National Enrichment Facility

Project Overview

The $1.5 billion National Enrichment Facility (NEF) in Southeastern New Mexico is the first major nuclear facility to be licensed in the United States in nearly three decades and the first to be awarded a combined construction and operating license.

By 2013, the facility became capable of producing enough enriched uranium to supply 25 percent of the nation’s power demand. The¬†facility’s Quality Level 1 structures, which include approximately 1 million covered square feet, are constructed of fortified concrete produced on-site, using materials from locations across the southwestern United States.
