URENCO site visit- July 2018

In July a group of our members visited Urenco site at Capenhurst.


URENCO operates in a pivotal area of the nuclear fuel supply chain which ends with thesustainable generation of electricity for consumers around the world. Thesupply chain itself can be subdivided into four key processes: mining;conversion; enrichment; and fabrication.

 

URENCO uses leading centrifuge technology to provide the uranium enrichment servicesour customers need to generate low carbon nuclear energy.


13 members took a tour of the site. They met at 1pm and safety regulations and checks were completed along with a presentation. There was a tour of the E23 Plant which was extremely impressive. The tour finished and there was a short Q& A session that followed.
