Urenco is an independent, global energy and technology group with production from plants in Germany, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom. These plants use Urenco's own centrifuge technology. Urenco's focus is on providing safe, cost effective and reliable uranium enrichment services for civil power generation within a framework of high environmental, social and corporate responsibility standards. Our goal is to further increase our worldwide market share while maintaining high profitability. We aim to become the leading supplier in the extended global enrichment market. Urenco is organised around two distinct principal business activities: enrichment of uranium; and the supply of enrichment technology. The Enrichment Group (UEC) is responsible for operating centrifuge enrichment plants and marketing the enriched uranium to nuclear utilities worldwide. Urenco supplies these customers from plants in Germany, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom and is currently applying for a licence for a new enrichment plant, the National Enrichment Facility (NEF) in the United States. The Technology Group (ETC) owns the world-leading centrifuge technology which has consistently proved to be the most efficient in the market. ETC provides enrichment capacity to UEC and in future will also supply capacity to Areva, the French nuclear Group and the National Enrichment Facility in the United States.
