Maliaño, 5th of June, 2018.- Equipos Nucleares SA, SME (Ensa) has recently been awarded with a contract to manufacture two pressurizers for Framatome, rank one supplier for the Hinkley Point C nuclear power plant (Bridgwater, UK). The Spanish company is also in charge of the design, production and supply of different embedded tanks, for the two units of the British NPP. Each unit contains: a pressurized tank, a tank for the reactor cooling system and another for volume control, as well as four accumulators plus two rings for the support and settlement of the reactor vessel.
This contract culminates a commercial phase in which Ensa has overcome numerous challenges, developing value propositions that have allowed Ensa to differentiate itself from a tough competition until finally being awarded with these projects. This is an important milestone for Ensa in manufacturing nuclear components in the global market for NPPS: Supplying these components in the UK is a strong support to Ensa’s trajectory, characterized by being a multi-system manufacturer, with different products, by its internationalization, as well as by its extensive experience, that allows Ensa to offer customized services adapted to each costumer and situation.
Hinkley Point C (HPC), currently under construction, has a projected life of sixty years and is currently a leading project and international reference in the nuclear field and one of the most relevant currently in the western countries.
