The National Nuclear Security Administration further clarified its position on deferring the Chemistry Metallurgy Research Replacement facility for at least five years.
NNSA spokesperson Josh McConaha issued the following statement: “NNSA has taken steps to ensure the nation has a capabilities-based nuclear security enterprise focused on needs and solutions. We view this constrained budget environment as an additional incentive to ask ourselves how we can re-think the way we’re operating, how we can innovate, and how we can get better.
“To that end, NNSA has decided to adjust our plutonium strategy by deferring construction of the CMRR nuclear facility (CMRR-NF) project at Los Alamos National Laboratory for at least five years. Instead we are focusing on how to ensure our plutonium needs are met by using the capabilities and expertise found at existing facilities. Utilizing existing facilities will allow us to ensure uninterrupted plutonium operations while focusing on other key modernization projects.
