Blue Castle is beginning the contractor selection process for its construction joint venture for the Blue Castle Project, a two-unit nuclear power plant in Green River, Utah.

Blue Castle Holdings is hosting a project overview webinar on July 21, 2016 at 1:00 PM MDT.

This webinar is exclusively for qualified contractors with the capability to execute large contracts in heavy civil, mechanical, electrical, structural building, engineering, industrial procurement, modular fabrication and project management.

Contractors qualified under Appendix B, ASME Nuclear Quality Assurance (NQA-1) programs are required for about 70% of the scope of work. About 30% of work scope will be conducted under other typical industrial construction standards. All contractors must be able to perform in a very rigorous quality assurance program compliance environment, meeting the requirements of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. These requirements include varying levels of quality assurance performance, inspection, and documentation based upon the specific work scope performed.

Information regarding the construction joint venture for qualified firms will be presented. The webinar is intended for high level executives from companies capable of performing in a highly integrated project delivery system environment. The combined estimated contract work available to construction joint venture participants is approximately $8 billion in nuclear safety and non-safety related, balance of plant and infrastructure work, over a seven year time frame with an approximate start year of 2020 for non-safety related work and 2022 for nuclear safety related work, as permitted by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

An overview of the Blue Castle Project structure, technology selection, construction contractor selection, planning and timeline will be presented. Included in the presentation will be the status and trends of other new nuclear construction projects in the U.S.A. and how those developments are influencing the Blue Castle Project.
