Excursion ETC & Urenco 27th of June

On the 27th of June, we visited ETC & Urenco to see what future jobs for our students could look like. Together with C.T.S.G. Alembic, we boarded the bus with a total of 32 students and left just before lunch for Almelo. Once we arrived, we were warmly welcomed by ETC, and a luxurious lunch was served. The day began! After lunch, we received a presentation about ETC and their partners/daughter companies. This presentation was accompanied by a tour of their facilities, guided by highly skilled engineers who could provide insights into every aspect, from carbon rollers to electron beam welding. They have it all.

After the tour, we had a closing presentation and then headed to Urenco. At Urenco, they demonstrated how they enrich uranium using ETC gas centrifuge technology. By utilizing these well-designed technologies, Urenco supplies approximately 25% of the worldwide demand for nuclear power plant fuel. The day concluded after a tour of their facilities. It was amazing to witness the precision and care with which they handle all the radioactive materials. From taking good care of their employees to conducting numerous safety checks, Urenco ensures a safe environment for facilitating a greener future.
