Enusa reports a reportable event to the Nuclear Safety Council

Today the Juzbado factory notified the Nuclear Safety Council of a reportable event, resulting from the triggering of the Fire Protection System alarm in the sintering zone of its manufacturing plant when the temperature sensor of an oxidation furnace enclosure actuated. Reduced air circulation inside the furnace enclosure was detected; this in turn caused an increase in temperature. The correct air flow was immediately reestablished and the temperature also returned to the right levels. This incident did not have any consequences in the facility and has not posed any risk to the workers, public or environment. More information at...

The Juzbado Fuel Assembly Factory has conducted the annual emergency drill

A criticality accident after three drums of powder fall: the focus of the annual emergency drill at the Juzbado Factory As a result, four workers were exposed to irradiation and contamination. Once again, the drill has shown that the Enusa emergency organization and the available resources all function properly. This morning, the Juzbado fuel assembly factory has conducted the annual emergency drill, which took place between 10:30 and 12:00 hours. On this occasion, the recreated event has been a criticality accident that occurs because of the accumulation of nuclear material after three uranium oxide powder drums fall over and open. The event begins in the powder warehouse when a worker driving a forklift makes an abrupt maneuver and strongly hits two drums that were on a roller conveyor. Both drums fall down and open, spilling uranium powder. A third drum is left in an unstable position and also finally falls in the same area, thus causing a situation that results in a criticality accident. As a result, two workers are contaminated and irradiated and another two only irradiated. The personnel is evacuated from the facility and the four affected workers are cared for by the Enusa Medical Service. The criticality reaction stops by itself and at that moment the drill is declared at an end, with the facility returning to normality. The drill is one of the Juzbado Interior Emergency Plan requirements. This type of activity is periodically carried out in nuclear facilities to check the proper functioning of the Emergency Organization, the availability of resources and the coordination with the involved agencies. In this case, the drill has been conducted correctly and within the bounds of normality. For more information, see the Nuclear Safety Council website where this activity is...

The ENUSA GROUP Presents its Annual Report

In 2014 the earnings of this corporate group amounted to € 286 million The fuel assembly factory in Juzbado exported more than 70% to European nuclear power plants ETSA, the transportation subsidiary, handled almost 40,000 shipments of radioactive material EMGRISA, the Group’s environmental firm, opened an office in Peru as part of its internationalization process In a year when the public sector Transparency Act took effect, the Annual Report is a tool for awareness and reflection that characterizes the ENUSA Group and is one of our trademarks. The purpose of the Transparency, Access to Public Information and Good Governance Act is to extend and strengthen the transparency of public activities, regulate and guarantee the right of access to information on those activities and establish the obligations to be observed by public officials. In 2014, ENUSA opened a Transparency Portal section on its website which makes information available to any interested party regarding the company business and including economic and financial data, corporate, organizational and regulatory information, etc. Transparency and credibility are necessary steps to be taken to consolidate Corporate Social Responsibility in the sense of gaining the trust of all stakeholders, including the market. Main Activities of the ENUSA Group in 2014 In 2014, the most important decision and one that will guide the development of ENUSA GROUP projects and activities, as well as maintain its market competitiveness, has been to definitively concentrate on its two business areas: nuclear and environmental. Consequently, the disinvestment of its subsidiary Molypharma has been completed and the companies remaining in the ENUSA GROUP are: ENUSA INDUSTRIAS AVANZADAS, S.A. and ETSA in the nuclear business, and EMGRISA as the Group’s environmental brand. The ENUSA GROUP, which in 2014 had 711 employees, has had a turnover of 286 million Euros in 2014, and its after-tax earnings have amounted to 4 million Euros. The Supply area of ENUSA, the Group’s parent company, has signed important enrichment services contracts that will guarantee the supply in the years to come. The output in 2014 of the Fuel Manufacturing area has amounted to 340 tons of uranium equivalent (tU), 70% of which has been exported to European power plants. The Juzbado Factory continues to improve the manufacturing process on an ongoing basis, with heavy investments in equipment and systems upgrades which in 2014 amounted to 3.7 million. The company is still working actively to boost its technological capabilities in the second part of the fuel cycle. On the other hand, the nuclear company carries on with its internationalization activities, and in 2014 the Salamanca-based firm has sold its first orders of fresh fuel inspection equipment to China and Brazil, operations which it trusts will be followed by many similar ones. ENUSA maintains its commitment to innovation through R&D projects. In 2014, 14 new research projects were undertaken, with an investment of six million Euros (€6 M) and a dedication equivalent to 30 researchers/year. The dangerous goods transportation company – ETSA – has carried 39,818 shipments of radioactive material and has signed an agreement with Biocarburantes de Castilla y León to be a transport operator. As for the Group’s environmental activities, EMGRISA became the environmental brand of ENUSA in 2014. The subsidiary, which focuses on industrial waste management and treatment of contaminated water and soils, has continued to internationalize by...

EMGRISA presents its office in Peru

EMGRISA, an ENUSA GROUP company that provides environmental services, presented its branch office in Peru yesterday to several companies and representatives of the Administration in Lima. The President of EMGRISA, José Luis Gonzalez Martinez, the Director General, Mariano Martinez Cepa, the Technical Director, Alfonso Alvarez Rodriguez, and EMGRISA’s representative in Peru, José Angel Andrés Anadón, were in charge of giving the presentation and explaining the environmental services and projects in which EMGRISA has participated. Peru is posting fast growth in the early phases of the services offered by EMGRISA – investigation and identification of contamination. In addition, it has very demanding environmental regulations but little experience in the services for which EMGRISA is a reference in our country, with extensive experience and the capability to undertake large-scale remediation projects. With its recognized experience, EMGRISA seeks to provide services from its Peru office involving soil and groundwater decontamination, management of a wide range of wastes (agro-food, municipal solid, industrial, etc.), mine reclamation, environmental consulting and engineering and technical assistance to the private sector and public administrations both in Peru itself and in the rest of the Latin American companies. See more information and video of EFE EMGRISA Launches a New Image Coinciding with its 25th Anniversary and international expansion, EMGRISA has presented a new visual identity. It has kept its round image-type from the previous logo and respected the corporate colors of the ENUSA GROUP logo.
