B&W Responds to GAO Decision

27 February 2014

(CHARLOTTE, N.C. – February 27, 2014) – The Babcock & Wilcox Company (B&W) (NYSE: BWC) has learned of the Government Accountability Office (GAO) decision to dismiss the protest filed by Nuclear Production Partners, LLC (NP2). This protest was filed in response to the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) decision to reaffirm its original award of the combined management and operating contract award for the Y-12 National Security Complex (Y-12) and Pantex Plant (Pantex).

“Each of the NP2 protests raised issues that our team believed were valid,” said George Dudich, President, Babcock & Wilcox Technical Services Group, Inc. “While we are disappointed with the GAO decision, we will evaluate the decision and consider our options.  The B&W-led teams currently in place at Y-12 and Pantex remain focused on operating both sites safely and securely.”
