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...

Collaboration Agreement Between ENSA and ENUSA for Spent Fuel Management

ENUSA and ENSA (Equipos Nucleares, S.A) have signed a collaboration agreement this week for the provision of services in the area of spent fuel management. The collaboration agreement signed between the two public enterprises belonging to the SEPI Group will enable both national and international nuclear power plant operators to simultaneously benefit from the experience of both companies. ENSA is the world’s leading nuclear component manufacturer with more than 20 years of experience in the design and manufacture of spent fuel casks, while ENUSA offers more than 40 years of experience in fuel design, manufacturing and handling and also in spent fuel inspection, characterization and processing. With this collaboration agreement, ENUSA and ENSA will offer an integrated package of services in a market with a growing demand for spent fuel management in Spain, Europe, China and the rest of the world. On the other hand, the two companies will cooperate more closely to comply with the specific demands of operators and the licensing requirements for prolonged storage and...

One delegation from the Nuclear Safety Council visits ENUSA’s facilities

One delegation from the Nuclear Safety Council (CSN) headed by the Member Ms. Cristina Narbona has met ENUSA’s representatives at the latter facilities in Salamanca for holding a Liaison Bureau between the regulator and the company. Yesterday Monday they visited the Facility at Saelices el Chico, in Ciudad Rodrigo, where the technician in charge of the site, Mr. Javier Ruiz, showed to the Council’s Members the restoration and surveillance works which are being carried out at the former mining facilities. This is one of the biggest environmental restoration project ever carried out in Spain and one of the most important in the European Union, with an envisaged budget of 150 M€. The visit was completed this morning at the factory of nuclear fuels which ENUSA has in Juzbado. During the visit, ENUSA’s Chairman, Mr. José Luis González, and the factory’s manager, Mr. Javier Montes, made a presentation about the Company and showed the facilities to the delegates. The Juzbado factory exported last year more than 70% of its production to nuclear power plants in Europe. This is the first time that Ms. Narbona pays a visit to ENUSA’s facilities, and both she and her companions showed a keen interest on having a firsthand knowledge about ENUSA’s activity, showing their satisfaction with what they had...

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...

Training Visit of Madrid Professors to the Juzbado Factory

A group of secondary school teachers from the Autonomous Region of Madrid visited the Juzbado fuel assembly factory last week to take part in the Fuel Cycle Course organized by Nuclear Forum. Throughout the day, they learned about the manufacturing process – both the ceramics area where the uranium pellets are made, and the Mechanical area where the PWR and BWR fuel assemblies are put together. For the last part of the visit, they were taken on a tour outside the plant so they could learn about the most relevant aspects of ENUSA’s Environmental Management...
