Ventilation and Dust Extraction Systems at the Fuel Assembly Manufacturing Facility in Juzbado
ENUSA designs, produces and supplies nuclear fuel for Nuclear Power Plants. IDOM performed the conceptual redesign of the ventilation and dust extraction systems in the ceramic areas in order to comply with the updated version of the applicable standards in the fuel assembly manufacturing facility in Juzbado (Salamanca). The project required in depth analysis of the regulatory framework since there was a lack of installation standards in this field when the facility was constructed. IDOM provided technical solutions that met the objectives of the study with regard to security and confinement of radioactive powder, control improvement, obsolescence, increase of energy efficiency of the current system and reduction of the impact caused by the changes and updates undertaken in the facility.
