What we do

We provide safe, cost effective and reliable uranium enrichment services and fuel cycle products for power generation within a framework of high environmental, social responsibility and corporate governance standards.

Our customers typically supply us with natural uranium, uranium hexafluoride, which we then enrich to international specifications, using centrifuge technology designed and deployed by Urenco. Through the flexible operation of this technology, we are also able to provide products and services beyond enrichment. For example, by conserving natural uranium and providing enriched uranium product.

We also use our technical expertise to more broadly serve the nuclear industry. We have subsidiaries dedicated to responsible nuclear stewardship, we produce stable isotope products with medical, industrial and research applications and we are developing a micro modular reactor in collaboration with a consortium of partners.

Our global operations

We are unique in the global enrichment market in having four enrichment facilities in four different countries. These are located in Germany (Urenco Deutschland), the Netherlands (Urenco Nederland), the UK (Urenco UK) and the USA (UUSA). Our Head Office is located close to London in the UK and we have a marketing office in Arlington in the USA.

We are committed to leading the way in responsible uranium stewardship and have several subsidiaries dedicated to overseeing our work in this area. Urenco ChemPlants will operate our Tails Management Facility in the UK, which will deconvert the by-product of enrichment into a more stable form for long term storage for future enrichment or final disposal, and Urenco Nuclear Stewardship, also based in the UK, is responsible for the management of nuclear materials, decommissioning and recycling.

Our stable isotopes business in the Netherlands draws on our expertise and capabilities in centrifuge technology to produce a variety of stable isotopes for medical, industrial and research applications.

We also own a 50% interest in Enrichment Technology Company (ETC), a joint venture company with Orano. ETC provides enrichment plant design services and gas centrifuge technology for enrichment plants through its subsidiaries in France, Germany, the Netherlands and the UK.

Our customers

We supply uranium enrichment services and fuel cycle products to more than 50 customers in 19 countries. Our global reach and diversity of supply means we are well placed to meet the needs of our customers around the world and we pride ourselves on the quality, flexibility and reliability of our services. We are currently working towards providing support to our customers to fuel all nuclear new builds, including the next generation of reactors.

In 2018, we once again met 100% of our customer delivery commitments.
