AN INTEGRATED SOLUTION
AREVA provides a response adapted to the needs of utilities in both nuclear energy and renewable energies. The range of solutions comprises an array of capabilities and technologies enabling electricity production that is competitive and respectful of the environment while meeting the highest safety standards.
With its accumulated know-how, AREVA relies on its historical offer of nuclear energy, which delivers a constant, high-volume supply of centralized electricity, supplementing it with renewable energy sources, to locally generate more modest quantities of electricity often in intermittent mode.
The Group has launched R&D programs to leverage its expertise in the nuclear sector in the development of renewable energies. This strategy enables it to offer its customers a range of solutions to diversify their energy mix.
AREVA has an integrated model which has become a benchmark in the sector in the space of a few years. AREVA covers the entire nuclear cycle, from uranium extraction and the production of fuel through to the recycling of spent fuel, taking in the design and construction of nuclear reactors through to their dismantling. Its solutions include services required for the operation, modernization and improvement of safety and the performance of power plants. This approach is based on the implementation of global, long-term partnerships between AREVA and its customers.
A complete range of nuclear reactors
AREVA offers the latest-generation (III+) EPR™, ATMEA1 and KERENA™ reactors, with power output ratings from 1,100 MWe and 1,650 MWe.
