About this event

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

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

URENCO (Capenhurst) Limited became a wholly owned subsidiary of URENCO Limited in 1993 following a restructuring of the URENCO Group. Since then, the site has established itself as a highly successful operation, expanding its production capacity to 4,700 tSW/a by the end of 31 December 2016, and contributing to the Group's objective of being the leading international supplier of enriched uranium and associated technologies. From 2 June 2008, URENCO’s Capenhurst site changed its registered name from URENCO (Capenhurst) Limited (UCL) to URENCO UK Limited (UUK) 
Located in Capenhurst, near Chester in the north west of England, the site operates three plants producing enriched uranium to enable nuclear power stations around the world to generate electricity.

The visit will be to E23, the largest of Capenhurst's three plants which houses more than 80% of the site’s enrichment capacity.

(Capenhurst's other plants, E22 and A3, continue to contribute significantly to the site's total output.)
