Specialist in fuel assemblies – for many years now

Fuel assembly fabrication in Lingen

The Lingen site has been manufacturing fuel assemblies for boiling and pressurized water reactors as well as special powder and pellet products for more than 40 years. Furthermore, the site has received orders for the disassembly and reassembly of unspent fuel assemblies, thus contributing to making the shutdown German nuclear power plants fuel-free. Specific competencies in the design and construction of manufacturing technologies are another pillar and contribute to a high production quality – and therefore safety in nuclear power plants also outside of Germany. ANF also ensures the education and training of radiation protection experts and other nuclear professionals. This knowledge and these competencies will still be needed in Germany even after the phase-out in 2022.

Component fabrication in Karlstein am Main

The Karlstein site has been manufacturing components for fuel assemblies and core parts for more than 50 years. Main products are spacers, head and bottom fittings, water passages for boiling water reactors and assembly parts such as end caps for fuel rods, rings, screws and other small parts for the worldwide market of Framatome.
