AREVA looks set to supply fuel assemblies to German utilities

AREVA has signed three contracts with German utilities RWE and EnBW for the supply of fuel assemblies.

The first two contracts signed with RWE cover the manufacture and supply of ATRIUM and HTP fuel assemblies respectively for nuclear power plants in Gundremmingen, Bavaria, and Emsland, Lower Saxony, until late 2015.

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

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