Successfully completed the delivery of the four components manufactured by ENSA for the Beaver Valley plant in Pennsylvania

Successfully completed the delivery of the four components manufactured by ENSA for the Beaver Valley plant in Pennsylvania

03/08/2016 - Maliaño
Press release ENSA

The four replacement components for the Beaver Valley plant in Pennsylvania (USA), manufactured by Equipos Nucleares, S.A (ENSA) reached their destination and were delivered at the plant’s storage facilities on July 24th, as envisaged.

The shipment of the three steam generators and of the vessel upper head for the plant’s second reactor began on June 17th. From the facilities which ENSA has at Maliaño, the components crossed the Atlantic Ocean and reached the Gulf of Mexico; from there to the Mississippi Delta for finally reaching the plant, which is located on the Ohio River.

The company from Cantabria studied and organized both the shipment by sea and by land at its facility, something which required almost one year and a half, and which has guaranteed that the components arrived in perfect conditions and the successful completion of the project.

A high level of satisfaction

The customers of this order, FENOC and Westinghouse, have both transmitted to ENSA their “high level of satisfaction with the final product”. They pointed out that the Maliaño-sited company “has managed to make all well from beginning to end”.

In 2005 ENSA already supplied the same set of replacement components for unit no. 1, and due to the good results and to their high quality, the customer ordered in August to the company from Cantabrian the manufacture of the components for its second reactor.

The persons in charge of the project in ENSA stated that “the delivery has been made, once again, fulfilling the high levels of excellence which we at ENSA demand from ourselves in all of our works, but it would have been difficult to complete it without a good work totally made in team”, they concluded.

ENSA and Grupo SEPI

ENSA belongs to Grupo SEPI, a corporate holding which includes a total of 16 state-owned companies in which it has direct, majority shareholding participations, with a workforce of around 73,000 professionals in 2014; the Spanish state-owned television and radio corporation, Corporación Radiotelevisión Española, which is attached to SEPI, and one public foundation. Equally, SEPI has direct minority shareholdings in a further ten companies, and indirect shareholdings in more than one hundred companies.
