Mr. Javier Dies, a member of the Nuclear Safety Board, visits to ENUSA’s facilities in Salamanca

Mr. Javier Dies, a member of the Nuclear Safety Board (CSN) has met with representatives from ENUSA INDUSTRIAS AVANZADAS, S.A. for having a close knowledge about the activities which this company carries out at its facilities in the province of Salamanca. Yesterday Thursday he visited the Facility at Saelices el Chico, in Ciudad Rodrigo, where the Chief Financial Officer and director for Shareholdings, Mr. Juan Artieda, and the technician in charge of the site, Mr. Javier Ruiz, showed to the Director 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 day, ENUSA’s Chairman, Mr. José Luis González, and the factory’s head, Mr. Javier Montes, made a presentation about the Company and showed him the facilities. The Director of the regulating agency highlighted during his visit that “the Juzbado factory is one of the most innovative in Europe, and stands out as an example of the pellets automated inspection system”. In its last full meeting on June 1st, the CSN submitted a positive report about the renewal of the authorization for the operation and production of ENUSA’s facility. This is the first time that Mr. Dies visits ENUSA’s facilities, and he showed a great interest and satisfaction for having a first-hand knowledge about the company’s activity. The visit made by ENUSA’s Director takes place within the framework of the program of visits which he is making to nuclear facilities in...

The Nuclear Safety Council approves the renewal of the ENUSA factory permit

The Nuclear Safety Council (CSN) has given the go-ahead to renewal of the operating and manufacturing permits of ENUSA’s fuel assembly factory in Juzbado, which expire in July 2016, for another ten years. In the plenary session held on Wednesday, the CSN issued a favorable decision for renewal of the operating and manufacturing permit, which was requested by ENUSA in an application to the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism, which the latter in turn submitted to the CSN on July 29, 2015. The CSN has evaluated the assessment of aspects associated with the Periodic Safety Review (PSR) and with the status of compliance by the factory with the different conditions and Complementary Technical Instructions (ITC) implemented on granting it the current permits and the ITC and Technical Instructions (IT) that have been issued since the permit was granted. The CSN has also evaluated the results of the factory’s Supervision and Follow-up System. In addition to the operating permit, the CSN Plenary Session has also issued a favorable report on renewal of the physical protection permit and revision of the Juzbado physical protection plan....

EDF satisfactorily rates ENUSA manufacturing in 2015

The French electric utility Electricé de France (EDF), a state-run enterprise that ENUSA has supplied nuclear fuel to since the decade of the 1990s, has recently presented its rating of the 2015 manufacturing process, as part of the EDF periodic follow-up of its suppliers. The result of this assessment has been “very satisfactory”, even better than the rating obtained in 2014. The French utility has stressed, among other things, the professionalism and implication of operators, inspectors and technicians in the verifications they perform of the activities on the production line and the implementation of constant improvements in the different areas of production. It has also very positively rated the availability, communication and anticipation of the team that supports the follow-up of refuelings for EDF. EDF has also identified issues related to qualification planning and product certification as opportunities for improvement. Together with Westinghouse, within the European Fuel Group (EFG), ENUSA commercializes nuclear fuel for pressurized water reactors (PWR). In 2015, ENUSA has supplied more than 130 tons of enriched uranium for new plants owned by the French electric utility, making it the country to which it exports the most.  ...

ENUSA present as of today at the China Nuclear Fair

ENUSA has travelled to Beijing together with other Spanish nuclear firms, in coordination with the Foro de la Industria Nuclear Española [Spanish Nuclear Industry Forum], to take part in Nuclear Industry China (NIC 2016), which is being held from April 6 to 9. Participation in the NIC exhibition is an opportunity to display the company’s innovations from over the last year and to establish contacts with companies in the Chinese nuclear sector and other countries and regions taking part in the exhibition. In addition the presence of ENUSA personnel in China will allow the company to carry out an in-situ follow-up of the current projects and negotiating opportunities with Chinese clients. For this reason, this Fair is ENUSA’s most important promotional event in the Asia-Pacific region. ENUSA invested in China in 2007 by joining the Spanish Nuclear Group for Cooperation and participating in the China International Nuclear Industry Exhibition held that year in Shanghai. After an early period of contacts and positioning, ENUSA has identified a market niche in the commercialization of nuclear fuel inspection equipment, an area in which Chinese companies have still not achieved the level of technology development found in Europe or the United States, where the world’s leading suppliers of nuclear technology are based. In 2013, ENUSA signed its first equipment supply contract with the local manufacturer CNNC Jianzhong Nuclear Fuel, the leading Chinese fuel manufacturer. This contract was followed by another two signed in 2014 for supplies to the aforesaid fuel factory and the Suzhou Nuclear Power Research Institute (SNPI). It is precisely with the latter and jointly with its partner TECNATOM that ENUSA has signed a new agreement in January 2016, which could be a qualitative leap forward for the Spanish company’s prospects in China. SNPI belongs to the China General Nuclear (CGN) group, which is the main nuclear reactor constructor and operator in China with 14 units in operation and 12 more under construction. The agreement with SNPI enables ENUSA-TECNATOM to be the reference suppliers of nuclear fuel inspection equipment for SNPI, placing the two Spanish partners in a privileged position vis-à-vis CGN’s strategic move: develop its own nuclear fuel design and manufacturing capabilities, an area in which its major competitor – CNNC – is currently the leader. China is the country with the most nuclear power plants under construction (24 reactors) and the greatest market potential. At present, it has 31 operating nuclear reactors that produce 2.4% of its electricity. Of the 66 reactors under construction around the world, 43 of them are being built on the Asian continent.    ...
