Spanish spent nuclear fuel facility contracts awarded for $3.6mn


Gas Natural Fenosa Engineering and Tecnatom signed a 3.1 million euros ($3.6 million) contract to design a centralized temporary nuclear waste storage facility in Villar de Cañas in Spain.
Nuclear decommissioning company Enresa assigned the contract, which is to last for 40 months. This is the second contract awarded to Gas Natural Fenosa for the high-level storage facility from Enresa. Tecnatom designed containers for use in the facility’s maintenance workshop, while Gas Natural Fenosa Engineering has designed module packages to store intermediate-level waste as well as interim storage containers for waste awaiting storage.
Construction on the facility will begin once a building permit is granted, along with a construction license from the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism. The facility will accept transport casks of used nuclear fuel assemblies currently stored at Spain’s nuclear power plants.
