Huntington Ingalls Industries has announced that the Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration has issued a “notice to proceed” to Mission Support and Test Services (MSTS) LLC, a joint venture including Honeywell International and its equity partners SN3, a part of HII’s Technical Solutions division, and Jacobs Engineering. The notice allows MSTS to begin transition activities for the management and operation of the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS) on Aug. 1, 2017.
“We are excited about the opportunity to extend SN3’s legacy of environmental management at the NNSS,” said Michael Lempke, president of Technical Solutions’ Nuclear & Environmental group. “We look forward to delivering outstanding nuclear operations and site management services that build upon and integrate lessons learned from HII’s six decades of NNSA mission performance in the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program and as a management and operating partner at the DOE’s Savannah River Site.”
NNSS is a pre-eminent outdoor, indoor and underground resource executing national security experiments and helping to secure the United States and its allies in support of the nuclear deterrent and critical emergency response capabilities. MSTS’ mission is to manage and operate the NNSS contract safely, securely, effectively and efficiently to the satisfaction of our customers while adhering to impeccable ethical standards. MSTS is committed to be the high-hazard experimentation and mission-service provider of choice for U.S. national security customers.
