AREVA signs several fuel supply contracts in Germany

(PresseBox) ( Erlangen, )
AREVA has signed three contracts with the German utilities RWE[1] and EnBW[2] for the supply of fuel assemblies.

The first two contracts signed with RWE cover the manufacture and the supply of ATRIUMTM and HTPTM [3] fuel assemblies, respectively for Gundremmingen (Bavaria) and Emsland (Lower Saxony) nuclear power plants, until late 2015.

AREVA has also concluded a contract with EnBW regarding the manufacture and the delivery of HTPTM fuel assemblies for the reactor 2 of Philippsburg (Baden-Württemberg) nuclear power plant, between 2014 and 2017.

These fuel assemblies will be manufactured by AREVA on its Lingen site located in Germany.

Stefan vom Scheidt, AREVA Germany Managing Director, declared: "these contracts are a new evidence of the historic relationship forged between AREVA and its German customers. They provide AREVA with a clearer picture of its production schedule and confirm its leading position in nuclear fuel delivery".
