Spain - Plutonium Investigation n°16

Nuclear exports

  Much of Spain's nuclear program has been rather insular. However there have been some deals done between the indigenous Spanish industry and foreign customers. For example, in March 1987 two bilateral "fuel cycle" agreements were signed with France by ENRESA and CIEMAT. In April 1988 ENUSA signed its first fresh fuel export deal withh the Swiss nuclear plant at Leibstadt (shared with the Italian company, Fabricazione Nucleare, an AGIP subsidiary). At the end of 1991 ENUSA joined up with the UK's BNFL and Westinghouse-since acquired by BNFL- in a new European Fuel Group consortium.
