Located in the city of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, Department of Energy, Oak Ridge Operations encompasses 35,252 acres of land and embraces three primary research and technology facilities (Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge Y-12 Plant, and East Tennessee Technology Park) as well as supportive organizations.
Operated by Lockheed Martin Energy Research Corporation, the Oak Ridge National Laboratory conducts applied research and engineering development to advance the Nation's energy resources, environmental quality, scientific knowledge, educational foundations, and industrial competitiveness.
Operated by Lockheed Martin Energy Systems, Inc., the Oak Ridge Y-12 Plant provides weapon components dismantlement; highly-enriched uranium storage and management; nuclear weapon stockpile support; environmental restoration; waste management activities; precision manufacturing; and national security programs. The Oak Ridge Centers for Manufacturing Technology, also located at Y-12, provides manufacturing technology transfer programs that are available to the Nation's private sector as well as other federal customers.
Also operated by Lockheed Martin Energy Systems, Inc., the East Tennessee Technology Park provides leading-edge research, development, and implementation of environmental restoration and waste management technologies related to monitoring, handling, decontaminating, decommissioning, treatment, and storage.
Oak Ridge serves the Nation through the Oak Ridge Centers for Manufacturing Technology by maintaining core competencies related to weapon manufacturing, providing access to user facilities, operating the manufacturing skills campus, and providing opportunities via technology transfer programs. Success results by combining the overlapping research and development capabilities of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the unique manufacturing technologies of the Y-12 Plant, and the environmental restoration experience of the East Tennessee Technology ark.
As the training arm of the Oak Ridge Centers for Manufacturing Technology, the Manufacturing Skills Campus offers intense hands-on and performance-based training courses for government, industry, and academia. The Campus features national broadcasts on industry-relevant topics via remote electronic hook-up, and a virtual training model which reduces traditional cost and schedule barriers.
Oak Ridge Operations continues to advance in quality, excellence, and research. This spirit continues to characterize Oak Ridge's activities as it builds on its historic strengths; delivers scientific and technological value; and establishes itself as an efficient, cost effective complex regarded for its high excellence, ethics, and integrity.
