On 24 March 2022 VONK received an award from Orano during their Supplier Award Ceremony in Paris, in the category ‘Competitiveness’.

Merijn van Mourik (MD) and @Thomas Andre (Site Team Lead) received the award from Mr. Edouard Blondel (Supply Chain Director) and Mr. Jacques PEYTHIEU (Business Director of the chemical enrichment unit).

Orano were especially impressed by VONK’s performance in the Energy Saving project. By re-engineering the electrical power drives, the Energy Saving Project will allow for a large reduction in power consumption in Orano’s uranium enrichment plants.

The power consumption savings are expected to be the equivalent of the yearly average energy usage of about 2,500 households.

As VONK we feel proud and appreciated and will continue supporting Orano in making their production more efficient and even greener.
