During the uranium enrichment process, depleted uranium hexafluoride (UF6) is produced as ‘tails’, containing 20-30% of natural uranium 235 concentration. URENCO required a facility to process this depleted uranium by-product for future re-enrichment by deconversion, for safe long-term storage.
Our team delivered the process, reference and detailed design stages of the project, as well as enabling works and engineering support. Many of our specialists were embedded within the EPC contractor team, whilst also providing continued support throughout commissioning and into project completion.
Our attention to detail and collaborative approach to project delivery were key factors in the award of the Legacy Cylinder Facility project with Urenco Nuclear Stewardship.
