Maliaño, April 12, 2019- Equipos Nucleares S.A., S.M.E (Ensa) successfully completed the installation of five racks in the spent fuel pools of the KPA storage building of the Olkiluoto nuclear power plant in Finland.
The Cantabrian company installed the first four racks in the plant in 2014 and this work has been recently completed with the installation of five new racks for the expansion of the pools. These last “internlock” racks, Ensa’s own design, were supplied last year and finally, they have been installed in underwater installation conditions. The works, coordinated by the owner of the Teollisuuden Voima Oyj (TVO) plant and supervised by Ensa, have been executed with the tools that the company based in Maliaño had supplied in the first installation and within the established schedule.
Ensa has extensive experience in the design, manufacture and installation of fuel storage equipment among which are the racks. Since 1993, it has supplied a total of 38,941 cells that are installed in all the Spanish plants and many others in China, South Korea, Finland, Taiwan and France. All designs have been developed following the highest quality standards, according to the demands of their clients.
