Explosion at centrifuge maker

Thursday, July 24, 2008

Accident investigators will today begin their investigation into the cause of an explosion at a company which makes centrifuges for the Urenco uranium factory in Almelo.

No-one was hurt in the blast, which the fire brigade describes as a ‘chemicals incident’.

The explosion apparently happened as chemicals were being mixed in a 200 litre tank, the AD reports.

The plant, ET NL, part of the Enrichment Technology Company, is next to the Urenco plant, where enriched uranium is produced for export worldwide.
