Huub Rakhorst, former Managing Director of Urenco Nederland, received a high royal award from the mayor of Almelo in recognition of his achievements for Urenco Nederland, the Urenco Group and the Dutch and international nuclear sector. It was presented to him at his farewell party on 21 May. Huub Rakhorst was very honoured and surprised and momentarily lost for words. It is quite rare that the title “Officier in de Orde van Oranje-Nassau” is awarded in the Netherlands.
Urenco is an international supplier of enrichment services and fuel cycle products with sustainability at the core of its business. Operating in a pivotal area of the nuclear fuel supply chain for 50 years, Urenco facilitates zero carbon electricity generation for consumers around the world.

Using centrifuge technology designed and developed by Urenco, and through the expertise of our people, the Urenco Group provides safe, cost effective and reliable services; operating within a framework of high environmental, social and governance standards, complementing international safeguards.
