Jul 18 2013 Read 3042 Times

Westinghouse Electric Company (USA) recently announced that it has been awarded a contract by ENRESA to provide architect engineering services in support of the El Cabril low- and intermediate-level nuclear waste repository in southern Spain.

The four-year operation and engineering support contract between Westinghouse Electric Spain and the Spanish agency responsible for radioactive waste management and nuclear plant decommissioning covers design modifications and the preparation of technical and licensing documentation for the repository.

“ENRESA is an important long-standing and valued customer, and we are delighted to continue supporting its El Cabril disposal facility,” said Javier González, Westinghouse vice president and managing director, Southern Europe. “Several generations of Spanish engineers from Westinghouse have successfully been providing these services since 1992.”

The El Cabril disposal facility, near Córdoba, was designed in the 1980s by Westinghouse Electric Spain, which was then known as INITEC Nuclear. The facility began to receive low- and intermediate-level waste from Spain’s operating nuclear power plants in 1992.

With this contract award with ENRESA, a multi-million dollar contract in 2011 to plan the waste repository in Bulgaria at Kozloduy, and more than 25 years of experience in a variety of nuclear energy projects across Europe, including nuclear power plants and at other sites in Germany, Sweden, Belgium, Austria, France, Italy and the UK, Westinghouse is a proven leader in supplying decommissioning, dismantling and waste management services.
