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.
