Naval Nuclear Propulsion

BWX Technologies, Inc. (BWXT) offers a complete range of nuclear components and services, including the manufacturing of nuclear reactor components for U.S. Naval submarines and aircraft carriers and other nuclear and non-nuclear research and development and component production.

We have proudly manufactured naval nuclear components and reactors since the 1950s - we designed and fabricated components for the USS Nautilus, the world’s first nuclear-powered submarine. To date, the U.S. government has safely steamed millions of miles using components manufactured at BWXT’s facilities. Our long and successful track record is underscored by our commitments to safety, quality and integrity.

Today, BWXT reactors power the Navy’s OhioVirginiaSeawolf and Los Angeles-class submarines as well as its Nimitz and Ford-class aircraft carriers.

BWXT is a full-spectrum supplier of high-consequence, close-tolerance, large-scale components and highly complex, electro-mechanical products. Our facilities are staffed by a highly-skilled, tenured workforce that possesses a unique array of state-of-the-art nuclear and non-nuclear capabilities, ranging from design to manufacturing to inspection to assembly and testing.

Government Solutions

In addition to naval nuclear work, we also:

  • Serve as the only U.S. supplier of research reactor fuel elements for American colleges, universities and national laboratories
  • Perform converting and / or downblending of high-enriched uranium into low-enriched fuel for use in commercial reactors that generate electricity
  • Manufacture large-scale, heavy-pressure vessels and other nuclear components for commercial power applications
  • Conduct engineering and non-destructive testing
  • Provide vulnerability assessment services

Applicable BWXT locations include:

  • Lynchburg, Virginia – principally manufactures naval nuclear reactors for submarines and aircraft carriers
  • Barberton, Ohio – manufactures heavy components for nuclear reactor plants used in submarines and aircraft carriers
  • Euclid, Ohio – manufactures electro-mechanical components for naval reactors used in submarines and aircraft carriers
  • Mount Vernon, Indiana – manufactures heavy components for naval nuclear reactors and aircraft carriers
  • Erwin, Tennessee – converts Cold War-era stockpiles of highly-enriched uranium into material suitable for processing into commercial nuclear reactor fuel; also operates a uranium fuel materials production facility to support America's fleet of nuclear-powered submarines and aircraft carriers
