INL’s Advanced Test Reactor wins American Nuclear Society award

New Orleans — Idaho National Laboratory’s Advanced Test Reactor has been awarded the 2016 Meritorious Performance in Nuclear Operations Award by the Operations and Power Division of the American Nuclear Society. The award was presented during the annual meeting of the American Nuclear Society in New Orleans.

The honor was bestowed on the ATR staff for “significant improvement in conduct of operations and human performance in support of the Idaho National Laboratory nuclear fuels and materials research mission.”

“Congratulations to all of the Idaho National Laboratory staff who have worked tirelessly over the last several years to improve operations and performance at the Advanced Test Reactor,” said John Kotek, Acting Assistant Secretary for Nuclear Energy. “The ATR is a world-class facility that is integral to the Office of Nuclear Energy’s ongoing research missions.”

The ATR was nominated for the award based on the significant improvement in conduct of operations and the use of human performance improvement and error prevention tools over the past several years. This culminated in the evaluation by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Enterprise Assessments in June 2015 that considered the ATR’s use of these tools to be one of the best programs in the DOE complex.
