Bechtel Plant Machinery, Inc. (BPMI) is a project engineering organization supporting the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program. BPMI provides design, manufacturing, and supply chain management of the fabrication, testing, delivery, installation, and field support of nuclear power plant components installed in submarines and aircraft carriers. In addition, BPMI provides upgraded replacement components in support of refueling and overhaul activities, and aids in the ultimate storage and disposition of spent naval fuel.  BPMI also delivers information technology and operational solutions to the Nuclear Navy, enabling them to fulfill their critical mission.



The PFO is an integral part of the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program’s strategy to ensure that reactor plant components are built and delivered as intended. Resident engineers in this office use their unique vantage point to provide daily quality and manufacturing oversight of reactor plant components fabricated by BWXT. They foster an effective working environment among the other PFO residents, BWXT NOG, and BPMI to ensure products are of high quality (compliant and with minimized defects) and affordable, all while being delivered on time to support end user needs. The resident position is a unique and challenging assignment where you will obtain and apply detailed knowledge of fabrication processes (machining, welding, inspection, nondestructive testing, stress relief, assembly, etc.), manufacturing technologies (such as automated welding, robotics, advanced nondestructive testing, laser tracker, and CNC controls/programming), and key manufacturing parameters (such as throughput, efficiency, planning, and scheduling).

As an employee, you may be required to receive and maintain a security clearance from the United States Department of Energy in order to meet eligibility requirements for access to sensitive information or matter.
