The fuel assembly plant in Juzbado
Our plant is one of the most innovative in Europe, incorporating state-of-the-art technology that optimises resources and protects the environment.
The centre has a specialised and highly qualified team that covers the entire fuel production cycle: provision, supply, uranium storage, component logistics, fuel fabrication, product quality control, development of equipment for the fabrication of PWR, BWR and VVER products and management of logistics and distribution to plants in Spain and some European countries.
The plant has a maximum annual production capacity of about 500 tonnes of uranium in accordance with the Operating and Manufacturing Authorisations in force and with a maximum enrichment of 5% in 235U.
Other activities carried out in the plant include Quality Engineering, which controls and certifies the final quality of the product; Process Engineering, which develops the equipment and processes for manufacturing the different products; and Fuel Services, which coordinates the implementation of inspection and repair campaigns.
Safety is this company’s main pillar, for this reason, the plant has a Safety department that guarantees the correct installation from the nuclear, physical, radiological and environmental points of view. The company invests continuously in the renewal of its equipment, the optimisation of processes and improvement of its safety systems.
The plant has six specialised laboratories that monitor the manufacturing process, maintain environmental surveillance of the surroundings and control the dosimetry of the personnel. These laboratories follow strict criteria of quality, independence, experience, professionalism, safety and respect for the environment, endorsed by ENAC and by AENOR certifications, according to ISO 17.025 according to ISO 9.002 respectively.
We are committed to innovation
Saelices El Chico Centre (Ciudad Rodrigo)
The year 2000 saw the end of mining activities at the former uranium mines of Saelices el Chico, with the immediate dismantling of the radioactive processing facilities and the restoration of the natural area affected by the mining operations.
The dismantling of the Elefante Plant and its leaching beds was completed in 2003 and the definitive restoration of the mining operations in 2009, with both projects undergoing the corresponding monitoring and control period.
This mining environmental recovery project is one of the largest ever undertaken in Spain and one of the most important in the European Union with a planned budget of 150 million Euro.
Present in other regions of Spain:
Municipal solid waste plant at Maestre de Cervera in Castellón
This is a complex consisting of the most advanced biotechnological plant in Spain for the valorisation of MSW and assimilable waste by means of bio-drying and accelerated oxidation.
It services 49 municipalities with a maximum seasonal population of 300,000 inhabitants and on average can treat up to 120,000 t/year.
Former uranium mining facilities La Haba (Don Benito, Badajoz)
The uranium mines at La Haba were in operation from 1966 to 1990, when they ceased operations and the environmental restoration work began.
During its 24 years of operation, the plant produced a total of 190.8 t of uranium concentrates with a grade of 86.22% U3O8.
Once the decision was taken to end production, ENUSA implemented a comprehensive decommissioning programme that included both the restoration of the natural area affected by the mining operations and the dismantling of the mineral processing facilities. With the restoration complete, the site was finally decommissioned in August 2004 and is currently under long-term monitoring and control.
