US-based Bechtel has been selected by European enrichment services and fuel cycle company Urenco to support the expansion of its Tails Management Facility (TMF) at the Capenhurst site in the UK. The facility stores low concentration uranium tails for further use, or conversion to a chemically stable form for disposal. Urenco says the TMF will help enable the UK’s nuclear energy security strategy, which includes plans to deliver 24 GWe of new nuclear capacity by 2050, providing about a quarter of the domestic electricity supply. ?
