Located in Capenhurst, near Chester, Cheshire Urenco operates three enrichment plants, which enable nuclear power stations around the world to generate electricity. The largest of the three plants, E23, produces more than 80% of the facility’s enrichment capacity.
Urenco UK is one of Urenco’s first enrichment facilities, along with our enrichment facility in the Netherlands, Urenco Nederland. Since 1973, we have used centrifuge technology designed and deployed by Urenco to enrich uranium. In 1975, Urenco delivered on its first SWU contract from pilot plant production in Urenco UK and Urenco Nederland and in 1977, our first commercial scale plant at Urenco UK was formally installed.
Urenco UK has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Urenco Limited since 1993, following a restructuring of the Urenco organisation.
