OAK RIDGE, Tenn. — Interested in your company becoming a supplier for the Y12-UPF Project and the nuclear industry? Scott County Mayor Jeff Tibbals announced to Scott County companies Friday that Oak Ridge's New Hope Center will host a slate of courses this month to help you decide if your company can play a role in the single largest government project in Tennessee history.
The total project cost of the Y12-UPF project is estimated at $6 billion to $8 billion, with $3 billion to be spent with local contractors and vendors. Among the contractors needed are tool and die, concrete, asphalt, building materials, station fabricators, and more.

The program is designed to help companies evaluate the potential business opportunities with UPF and the nuclear field, understand the impact of incorporating nuclear-compliant operations and prepare their themselves to be a successful supply chain partner on UPF projects.
