AREVA wins Angra 3 project contract in Brazil

AREVA has signed a contract with the Brazilian utility Eletrobrás Eletronuclear (ETN) for approximately EUR 75M to supply additional mechanical and electrical equipment to the Angra 3 nuclear power plant. The scope includes, in particular, diesel engines, electrical appliances and controls, as well as equipment for used fuel storage.

This follows the global contract worth EUR 1.25B in November 2013 for the completion of the Angra 3 reactor, located in the state of Rio de Janeiro. AREVA is supplying engineering services as well as the components and the digital instrumentation and control system for the reactor. The group also provides assistance in the supervision of the installation works and the commissioning activities.

“This new contract demonstrates ETN’s confidence in AREVA and reflects the excellent relations that have been developed between our two companies for more than 40 years as part of the Angra 2 and Angra 3 projects”, said Philippe Samama, senior executive vice-president of AREVA’s Reactors & Services Business Group.
