Our BusinessesNuclear Fuel-Cycling Business
Supporting the operation of nuclear fuel related facilities
In addition to the maintenance and management of nuclear power stations, ATOX also carries out a range of operations related to nuclear fuel cycle facilities, such as the maintenance of uranium enrichment facilities and reprocessing plants, and the maintenance and management of radioactive waste burial facilities and interim storage facilities.
Uranium enrichment facility maintenance
We perform maintenance activities (operation, inspection, repair) at facilities that enrich uranium for use at nuclear power plants.
Specific tasks include assisting in equipment management at uranium enrichment plants, inspecting wastewater treatment and storage equipment, and inspecting the inside of waste collection tanks.
Reprocessing plant maintenance
At facilities that reprocess used nuclear fuel, we perform maintenance (operation, inspection, repair) activities. Specifically, we carry out remote repairs on manipulators, the relocation and maintenance of manipulators, the inspection of low-level waste liquid disposal facilities, access control, crane inspection, and valve inspection.
Maintenance and management of radioactive waste burial facilities and interim storage facilities
ATOX takes over many of the operations that are necessary for the maintenance and management of radioactive waste burial facilities and interim storage facilities. Examples would include radiation control and container inspection. Please feel free to contact us for details of other services that we provide.
