DOE/NNSA Presentation - Glovebox Demand

Presented by: Mark K. Edelson, PE
DOE, NNSA
Director, Office of Project Analysis, Oversight and Review (NA-APM-1.1)

Over the next five years, the Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) expects to require gloveboxes far in excess of its recent historical demand.  Driven principally by planned plutonium processing capital projects at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and the Savannah River Site (SRS), demand will be triple what was experienced during the construction of the Uranium Processing Facility.  The requirement includes trains of gloveboxes with integrated tools, standalone enclosures, and non-NQA-1 training devices.  Other DOE sites also expect an increasing glovebox need over the same period.  NNSA will present feedback from the Energy Facilities Contractors’ Group (EFCOG) glovebox survey and interviews, results from the recent federal request for information (RFI), and seek contractor input on ways to reduce barriers to entry performing DOE/NNSA work, increase fabrication throughput, and ease contracting and technical challenges.
