Yucca Mountain Project
In September 2008, Ascendent, LLC was awarded a three year contract by Bechtel SAIC Company, LLC to provide Engineering & Licensing and Nuclear Safety support for the Yucca Mountain Project. The scope of the Yucca Mountain project includes management and operation and support to DOE for extensive studies of the Yucca Mountain geology, hydrology and climate. The Ascendent, LLC contract includes staff augmentation support in the engineering and design disciplines, with particular emphasis on structural engineers, nuclear engineers, mechanical engineers (stress analysis and finite element analysis), HVAC designers and engineers, and radiological engineers.
Due to cuts in federal spending, work on this project has been temporarily halted.
