From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Naval Reactors Facility (NRF) is located 52 miles northwest of Idaho Falls. The NRF is a United States Department of Energy-Naval Reactors facility where three nuclear propulsion prototypes A1W, S1W and S5G were located. It is contractor-operated for the government by Bechtel Marine Propulsion Corporation (BMPC), which also operates Bettis Atomic Power Laboratory and Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory.

From the early 1950s to the mid-1990s, NRF supported the U.S. Navy's nuclear-powered fleet by testing reactor designs, receiving spent nuclear fuel for processing and storage, and training nearly 40,000 Navy personnel to operate surface and submarine nuclear power plants.[1]

The only remaining active facility at NRF is the Expended Core Facility / Dry Storage Facility, which provides for storage of spent fuel from U.S. Naval reactors.

NRF is part of the Idaho National Laboratory.
