NUCLEAR FUELS, ROAD AND RAIL
With its NUCLEAR FUEL LOGISTICS DEPARTMENT, Orano NCS GmbH is a leader in the transportation and services business.
Orano NCS GMBH Nuclear Fuels Rail Logistics Department (BES) is a leading provider of transportation and logistics services in the nuclear fuel logistics business.
The main focus is on major projects, such as managing secure shipments of spent fuel elements from power and research reactors, and returning high and medium-level waste from reprocessing plants to the German interim storage locations (ZL) using a trimodal transportation system.
In addition, the BES portfolio includes the management of rail transportation of various uranium products in the uranium enrichment field (U3O8, UF6).
Together with our Group member, heavy load haulier Orano NT, the Nuclear Fuels Rail Logistics Department has done pioneering work with the concepts developed for the secure shipments to the former reprocessing plant and to the German interim storage locations (e.g. HAW shipments to Gorleben and moving fuel elements from Obrigheim nuclear power station to interim storage at Neckarwestheim). We are still very proud of this today.
