AREVA has been awarded several significant contracts following an EDF tender for support activities associated with electricity generation. These services include handling of casks, low-level radioactive waste management, radiation protection and assembly of scaffolding and insulating protections.

The contracts won by AREVA represent a total of several tens of millions of euros. EDF may also exercise options which could represent tens of millions of euros of additional business for AREVA.

“This commercial success has been achieved in the context of a highly competitive tender. It reinforces our status as a leading player in the sector. The service contracts we have won with EDF are testimony to the quality and commitment that our teams display on a day by day basis in their work in the French fleet of nuclear power plants,” commented Alain Vandercruyssen, Director, AREVA Dismantling and Services.
