NRC terminates construction authorization for the MOX Fuel Fabrication Facility

U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission terminated the construction license for the MOX Fuel Fabrication Facility (MFFF). The NRC letter announcing the termination was sent to the CB&I Areva MOX Services on February 8, 2019 (Enclosure 1 is the decision itself, Enclosure 2 is the justification). This step appears to officially end the project marked by delays and cost overruns.

The facility, located at the Savannah River Site, was being built to process most of the plutonium declared excess for military purposes.
