United States: AREVA's EPR Design Passes Aircraft Impact Assessment with No Violations

(PresseBox) ( Paris, )
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has confirmed that AREVA's Aircraft Impact Assessment (AIA) of the U.S. EPR reactor design has completed the agency's inspection, resulting in no violations. This is the first time an AIA has been in full compliance of federal regulatory requirements and does not necessitate any further examination or modification.

"The EPR reactor provides the highest levels of safety and security, and this approval by the NRC is further confirmation of its advanced features." said Tom Franch, senior vice president of Reactors and Services, AREVA Inc.

With six reactors already planned or under construction around the world, the EPR design benefits from unrivalled return on experience, reinforcing project certainty. In addition to the certification underway in the United States, the EPR reactor has been approved by authorities in Finland, France, China, and the United Kingdom.
