Ensa participated in the Meeting with the Talent hosted by the ETS of Industrial Engineers and Telecommunication of the UC

Maliaño, March 20th 2019.- Equipos Nucleares S.A., S.M.E participated in the third edition of the Meeting with the Talent hosted by the ETS of Industrial Engineers and Telecommunication of the Cantabrian University .

The aim of this event was brought the student near to the companies, to put them in touch with the labor market. The most important companies in the region participated in it. Ensa was one of them together with its subsidiary, Enwesa. There, the student have the chance to know their products, services and activity and also to provide them the delivery of their resume to possible work practices.

For the state company established at Maliaño this meetings are very productive because improve the approach of companies with the talent of the students and offer the opportunity to find different profiles that fit what it needs.

Ensa received students of the intermediate level of Mechanid of Salesianos school

Maliaño, February the 26fst of 2019.- Equipos Nucleares S.A., S.M.E  received the visit of the second-year students of the intermediate level of Machined of Salesianos school at Santander.

The group was welcomed with a presentation of the company where the main products designed and manufactured and the services offered to the nuclear industry were shown.

The visit continued in the Advanced Technology Centre where they observed, among others, tensile tests and impact tests with Charpy pendulum.

The meeting finished in the factory where they could see the main components and products in differents stages of manufacturing. Also the group observed the operation of specific machines such as grinding machines, boring machines, broaching machine and the vertical lathe and it was explained to them the work carried out in the clean area.

Ensa has done a new vibration test in the Ascó nuclear power plant

Maliaño, February the 21fst of 2019.- The Automatic department of the Advanced Technology Centre of Equipos Nucleares S.A., S.M.E has made a new test of vibrations in Ascó nuclear power plant in Tarragona to verify the correct state of the reactor coolant pumps.

As a part of the framework contract that the state company with head office/headquarters in Maliaño has signed with Westinghouse for the nuclear power plants of the National Association Ascó- Vandellós group it has been made the vibration measurements of the reactor coolant pumps during the beginning of plant cycle.

With these measures it was verified the correct state of the pumps after the servicing realized during the refuelling outage and also the needed calculations were made in anticipation of a scenery where balancing is necessary. The works were developed during the pressure and temperature rise of the plant until reaching nominal values.

Ensa develops a new submerged arc welding system

Maliaño, October 17, 2018 – The Automatic unit belonging to the Advanced Technology Centre of Equipos Nucleares S.A., S.M.E , in collaboration with the Welding Development unit and the Production Welding Unit, has designed a new submerged arc welding system that is being used in the union of parts that make up the Lower-Port of the PS4 of ITER .

This new advance allows welding inside the component whose complex geometry makes the joining process difficult, thus achieving significant improvements in the quality of the welds in compliance with the standards required by ITER.

Ensa to manufacture four tanks for ITER’s Water Detritiation System

Maliaño, December the 7th of 2016. – Equipos Nucleares, SA has been awarded the contract for the final design, manufacture and delivery of four tanks of the Water Detritiation System of the ITER project: two High Level Holding Tanks and  two Feeding Tanks.

The company located in Cantabria has signed this contract after undergoing a procurement process launched by Fusion for Energy , the EU body managing Europe’s contribution to ITER.

With this new contract, Ensa is consolidated as one of the main European manufacturers of components for large scientific facilities such as ITER.

The high quality of its components, the fulfillment of delivery time, the commitment to innovation and the technological development of the company located in Cantabria have been decisive for this award.

In March 2015, the tanks manufactured by ENSA for the Tritiated Water System, were Europe’s first-ever components to be delivered on the ITER worksite- one of the most important civil engineering platforms today.

The objective of ITER is to test the viability of fusion energy as a sustainable energy source, prior to the construction of a commercial demonstration facility.

Fusion for Energy

 Is the European Union’s organisation for Europe’s contribution to ITER.  One of the main tasks of F4E is to work together with European industry, SMEs and research organisations to develop and provide a wide range of high technology components together with engineering, maintenance and support services for the ITER project.

F4E supports fusion R&D initiatives through the Broader Approach Agreement signed with Japan and prepares for the construction of demonstration fusion reactors . F4E was created by a decision of the Council of the European Union as an independent legal entity and was established in April 2007 for a period of 35 years. Its offices are in Barcelona, Spain.
