What We Do

Safely Reducing Environmental Risks

We are cleaning up contaminated, unused facilities on the Oak Ridge Reservation (ORR). In addition to removing excess facilities, we maintain facilities across ORR that are waiting for disposition. We also provide critical upgrades to extend the life of active, but aging, facilities. This continues the same work done by the former UCOR from 2011 to 2022.

Crews are prepping to clean up a canal at the Oak Ridge Graphite Reactor facilities. Workers lifted a large cement hatch to access the duct work below. They will have to build a form in the duct to prevent any air flow into the facility so they can pour 280 yards of grout into the approximately 160’ of duct between the reactor facility and its filter house. #EnvironmentalCleanup ...

Our interns are getting involved with technology development. Three interns completed LiDAR scanning at ORNL Building 3042, the Oak Ridge Research Reactor. LiDAR is a remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure ranges. Using LiDAR, the team can develop data points and images to create a 3D map of the building basement for safer deactivation work. #EnvironmentalCleanup ... See MoreSee Less

Safety

We Strive to Set the Standard in Safety

Safety is always the top priority at UCOR. We are a DOE Voluntary Protection Program Star site, a designation given to only the safest sites in the DOE Complex. Our award-winning safety performance has earned us many accolades.

Employee involvement is a key aspect of our safety culture. We empower our workers to stop work if they see something questionable. We also have strong worker engagement program to ensure our team members feel safe in their work environment.
