Global Nuclear Fuel-Americas has announced it has received a $300 million dollar contract from Baltimore, Md.-based Constellation Energy Nuclear Group, LLC (CENG) to supply fuel and associated engineering reload licensing services to the utility’s Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station in central New York.

“This is an important project for CENG as our Nine Mile Point facility produces electricity safely and reliably,” said Brew Barron, president and CEO of CENG. “Global Nuclear Fuel is a key partner in our efforts.”

Nine Mile Point is a two-unit, GE-designed boiling water reactor (BWR) station located in the town of Scriba, N.Y. north of Syracuse. Combined, the station’s two units generate more than 1,750 megawatts (MW), which is enough energy to meet the needs of more than 1 million households.

For the units 1 and 2 fuel reloads, GNF-A will supply fuel that is produced and assembled at the company’s Wilmington, N.C. fuel fabrication plant. The fuel assemblies will be equipped with GNF’s Defender™ filter technology. This is an added safety feature that protects the fuel by capturing debris that may exist in a reactor core, thus helping to prevent damage to fuel rods.

“Our latest reload fuel order from CENG will continue to enhance our strong working relationship in support of Nine Mile Point’s fuel-cycle requirements, which helps to ensure the station continues providing New York with a reliable source of carbon-free electricity,” said Nicole Holmes, Chief Operating Officer of GNF-A.
