Nuclear Services Partnership

Nuclear Services Partnership

Strata-G has formed a strategic alliance with Navarro Research and Engineering, Inc. (Navarro) and MS Technology, Inc. (MSTI) to launch a new joint venture company called Nuclear Services Partners, LLC. Nuclear Services Partners combines the expertise and experience of all three member companies to pursue opportunities primarily in the commercial nuclear sector to address the complex challenges for the current nuclear fleet, planned new small and large reactor deployments, and emerging nuclear technology systems development.

Nuclear Services Partners represents an excellent opportunity for Strata-G to expand in the growing nuclear industry and building on the comprehensive services that Strata-G already offers.

Thank you for your continued dedication and expert support to our customers as we embark on this new venture together.

Thank you to our Southern Appalachian Science & Engineering Fair (SASEF) judges, (from left to right – top row) – Michael Russell, Mark Swientoniewski, Allen Bradley, Tom Siard, Karen Atchley, Leah Berry, Paula Hulette, Scott Ward, Dan Gelb, (from left to right – bottom row) – David Tran, MacKenzie Bunch, and Nathan Brummette!

SASEF is the premier science and engineering competition for students in middle and high school for a 23-county service area of East Tennessee. SASEF has promoted teaching the scientific method in science, engineering, and math since 1952.

SASEF encourages students to ask testable questions and become involved in the process of gathering scientific evidence to answer their testable question.

Strata-G has been a proud sponsor of SASEF for several years.

Thank you, also, to SASEF President Leah Berry, Member-at-Large Mark Swientoniewski, and Strata-G Outreach Coordinator Paula Hulette for organizing our judges for this great event!

Successful completion of another project at ETTP is attributed to excellent collaboration among UCOR, Y-12 National Security Complex, City of Oak Ridge, Tyto Athene, LLC, and Trinity Contracting Services Co., LLC.

Appreciation goes to Aaron Wright, Senior Instrumentation and Control Project Manager at Strata-G, his dedicated team, and collaborating organizations. Through their efforts, the rerouting of the main fiber optics line between ETTP and Y-12 was accomplished seamlessly, enabling the continuation of soil remediation at EU-30. This project signifies a crucial step in addressing soil remedial needs at ETTP.

Strata-G’s Senior Project Superintendent Mike Burcham (pictured above) and Senior Construction Project Manager Charles Campbell are providing project management and safety support services to Johnson Controls, Inc. (JCI).

Their efforts are aimed at improving the Clemson University campus in South Carolina one building at a time!

JCI expanded its 25-year partnership with Clemson University under a new $45M net zero campus initiative that will generate savings to fund the entire project.

Through these improvements, Clemson University is projected to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 20% by 2025, a major milestone toward its 2030 carbon neutrality goal. The updates will foster a modernized environment for learning and living, while generating estimated savings of more than $3M annually throughout the 15-year contract.

Our Project Controls Subject Matter Expert, John Clayton, teaches MGT 480, a project management course held within the Haslam College of Business at the University of Tennessee. This class places students in the role of project managers, navigating the integration of scope, schedule, cost, quality, resources, communication, risk, procurement and stakeholder management.

The final class project was to create a scope, cost, schedule,and risk baseline for their vision of the Neyland Entertainment District project. Students were judged on their projects “SharkTank” style!

A major thank you to those who participated in judging these final projects, featuring the following sharks: Former Federal Project Director Laurie Folden and current Project Director Jon Caldwell from National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), Director of the UCOR Project Management Office Steve Braden, Chairman of the Tennessee State Board of Education and Navarro Project Consultant Bob Eby, Project Director and Senior Vice President John Platt from Bechtel Corporation, and our very own Chief Operating Officer, Leah Berry!

Congratulations to the Lithium Processing Facility (LPF) Project Team and to Strata-G Engineering Oversight Manager, Mark Swientoniewski, in conducting their ground-breaking ceremony on October 19, 2023, marking the start of site preparation work. LPF staff, contractors, and community members joined leadership from Consolidated Nuclear Security (CNS), Y-12 Acquisition and Project Management Office (APMO), National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), and NNSA Production Office (NPO) including NNSA Principal Deputy Administrator Fank Rose for the ceremony. LPF supports the NNSA’s vision for sustainable Lithium processing operations and critical NNSA mission needs for decades to come!

The project recently received Critical Decision-3A approval, which authorizes the project for site preparation construction work and long-lead procurement of equipment. “This continued progression demonstrates how we’ve been tracking to the schedule that was put into place 3 years ago towards a critical path where the end objective is to get workers out of Beta 2″, LPF Project Manager Robert Sperling said.

Strata-G is thankful to provide the NNSA Y-12 APMO organization with project management, technical, and administrative support to conduct Y-12 capital projects such as LPF.

A job well done to Strata-G’s Environmental Specialist, Mason Jobe, for his work supporting ORNL’s Agriculture Pod!

The main purpose of this study is to show that small communities can build systems that sequester carbon and use it to feed and grow plants resulting in a net zero carbon emission environment. Mason and his team are working on building an HVAC unit that sequesters and bottles carbon. Then, their team is going to start injecting that carbon at different rates into the atmosphere to alter those conditions and observe how it affects plant growth and rates of photosynthesis.

The goal is to discover how much carbon to apply at certain stages of plant growth so that the plant uses 100% of the injected carbon dioxide while simultaneously sustaining itself.

In hopes of achieving their goal, the team aims to demonstrate efficient usage of the HVAC bottling system in an effort supporting environmental sustainability practices.

Great job, Mason and team!

Congratulations to Department of Energy (DOE) Oak Ridge Environmental Management and United Cleanup of Oak Ridge, LLC (UCOR) on breaking ground on the Environmental Management Disposal Facility (EMDF)! The EMDF is an engineered onsite disposal facility for waste generated from deteriorated buildings on the Oak Ridge Reservation (ORR). The EMDF will enable environmental cleanup across the ORR so that the DOE Office of Science and National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) can reuse the land in support of innovative research and national security missions.

Strata-G President John Patterson has served UCOR as the EMDF Project Manager since June 2020: “The EMDF Team is an awesome group of seasoned professionals that have supported all phases of the project all while working in collaboration with our UCOR colleagues, DOE customers, and TDEC and EPA regulators.” The EMDF Team L to R: Steve Kenworthy, Bobby McClure, Greg Pickerel, Todd Bergener, Joe Aylor, Sean Dunagan, Stephanie Miller, Mason Eschenberg, Doug Hanahan, John Patterson, Doug Reynolds, Mary Magleby, and Karl Chance (missing Jennifer Linton, Annette Primrose, and Robin Manning).

Excellent work to all supporting this effort!
