MODERNIZATION TO INCREASE COMPETITIVENESS
AREVA oversees projects to modernize operating reactors and nuclear power plants across the globe.
The group helps operators achieve 3 major goals: improve facility safety, boost performance and extend reactor lifetime.
MODERNIZING OPERATING NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS
As a key market player, the Installed Base business unit (BU) carries out modernization programs for different types of power plants and reactors:
- Pressurized water reactors (PWRs), including Russian-designed VVERs;
- Boiling water reactors (BWRs);
- CANada Deuterium Uranium (CANDU) pressurized heavy water reactors.
Thanks to its experience, the group can obtain optimal results and reduce the duration of unit outages.
