Brazil: AREVA Awarded Service Contracts for Angra 1 and 2 Nuclear Power Plants

AREVA (Paris:CEI) was awarded six contracts totaling over 45 million euros by Brazilian utility Eletronuclear, to carry out extensive service works on the Angra 1 and 2 nuclear power plants.

With a duration period of three to five years, the scope of the contracts mainly covers works on Angra 2 and comprises key service needs for a nuclear reactor in operation.

AREVA will carry out examination and maintenance operations on the reactors mechanical and electrical main components and will provide local support to meet its customers needs.

In the framework of these orders, AREVA will implement its proven integrated service concept not only during plant outage but also during operation. AREVAs comprehensive offer will lower operating costs for Eletronuclear while enhancing the reliability of its plants.

These new successes will further strengthen the cooperation between the two companies in Brazil.

The group already provides services for both Angra plants and, together with Eletronuclear, has been performing the yearly outages for Angra 2 since its connection to the grid in 2001.
