The Juzbado Factory Holds its Annual Emergency Drill

This morning, the Juzbado fuel assembly factory held the annual emergency drill, which took place from 10:40 am to 12:15 pm. On this occasion, there was a simulation of a 5 magnitude earthquake, which exceeds the shutdown value and requires the factory to reach stable, safe conditions. The event commenced when a powder drum fell in the warehouse. This fall affected two people who at the moment were working with the drums and were externally contaminated. In addition, another two workers were injured and a rescue operation was required; they were subsequently cared for by the facility’s Medical Service. As a result of the earthquake, the facility was evacuated and an intervention was planned in the powder warehouse to clean up the spilled material, which would be a post-emergency action. Once this was done, the drill came to an end and was considered to have taken place correctly and with normal results. The drill is part of the Juzbado Interior Emergency Plan requirements. This type of action is periodically performed in nuclear facilities to check that the Emergency Organization functions correctly, that resources are available and that there is proper coordination with the involved organizations. For more information, see the Nuclear Safety Council website where information on this drill is available:...

Emgrisa and ENUSA participate in the 10th Anniversary of Peru’s Activos Mineros

On July 12, Emgrisa and ENUSA took part in the celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the Peruvian administration public enterprise, Activos Mineros, S.A.C. (AMSAC), which took place in the Institute of Mining Engineers of Peru. AMSAC, created in 2006, is a state-run private enterprise belonging to the mining sector and FONAFE (State National Business Activity Financing Fund) Corporation, and it has been promoting socially responsible mining for 10 years. The main objective of AMSAC is to remediate mining liabilities entrusted to it by the State (Ministry of Energy and Mines, PROINVERSIÓN and FONAFE) and to maintain the liabilities already remediated. It also administers and oversees the post-privatization commitments taken on by mining investors and, in turn, collaborates with the promotion of private investment in the State’s mining concessions. Activos Mineros invited the Peru branch of Emgrisa to participate in the event as a specialist firm in remediation of former mining operations. During the event, Fernando Lozano Martinez, ENUSA Environment Manager, presented a paper on the experience of reclaiming spaces where activities have been carried out in the uranium mining sector. Afterwards there was a panel of specialists which answered questions regarding the sustainability of the mining business and the future challenges to the sector in terms of sustainability. The event was attended by Rosario Patiño Marca, advisor of the ministerial office of the Ministry of Energy and Mining and President of AMSAC; Julia Justo Soto, Executive Director of FONAM; Guillermo Shinno Huamani, Vice-Minister of Mines; Luis Egocheaga Young, General Manager of AMSAC; Guillermo Median Cruz, National Coordinator of Better Gold Initiative, etc. Fernando Lozano spoke with them about the experience of the ENUSA Group companies in reclamation of land where mining operations have been carried out. Both for Emgrisa and for ENUSA, the invitation to participate in this event is an acknowledgement of their business and the quality of their services, and it also allowed them to learn more about the activity and repercussions of AMSAC’s functions on the Peruvian mining sector and society as a whole. The EMGRISA delegation in Peru, headed by Jose Angel Andrés, has now been in Lima for more than two years and is widely recognized in the mining and environmental sector and also by the Public...

On Thursday the 16th, the Management Board of the CEIDEN Technology Platform held its 29th Meeting in the nuclear fuel factory that ENUSA INDUSTRIAS AVANZADAS, S.A. has in Juzbado (Salamanca). In 1999, the Ministry of Industry and Energy created the Strategic Nuclear R&D Committee (CEIDEN) in order to promote and coordinate collaboration initiatives for research and development programs in the Spanish nuclear sector. In 2007, this Committee founded the Nuclear Fission Energy Technology Platform (P.T. CEIDEN). Since then, the PT CEIDEN has become a point of reference for the Spanish nuclear industry as a whole, where a common strategy is established in order to take advantage of the multiple available capabilities, implement new cooperation projects and achieve effective communication with national and European institutions in the area of R&D&I. Its executive body – the Management Board – is chaired by Rosario Velasco, vice president of the CSN, and it also has representatives from several ministries and universities, electric utilities, CIEMAT, ENSA, ENRESA, nuclear sector engineering firms, Tecnatom and ENUSA. To date many notable projects have been undertaken that cover broad fields of interest to the nuclear sector, including the following: spent fuel management, useful life management of reactor materials, new nuclear projects, educational, training and knowledge management capabilities, capabilities in R&D facilities, and simulation capacities. ENUSA has collaborated with the CEIDEN since it was founded as one of the most active members. It has headed some of the initiatives and participated in most of the projects. On several occasions it has hosted the Management Board meeting in its Madrid offices, and on this occasion in Salamanca in order to offer the opportunity to visit and learn about the installations of the nuclear fuel factory.
