AREVA Committed to the Timely Completion of Olkiluoto 3 While Ensuring the Highest Level of Safety Business Wire PARIS -- February 12, 2013 Regulatory News : AREVA (Paris:AREVA) : Following TVO’s announcement regarding the schedule of the Olkiluoto 3 project, the AREVA-Siemens consortium would like to recall the commitment made by the client to take all the measures necessary to contribute to a stable and reliable calendar. The AREVA-Siemens consortium and TVO jointly identified a while ago the Instrumentation and Control (I&C) as a critical field for the positive progress of the project. Over the course of the past year, the consortium has asked for significantly more active cooperation from TVO in order to obtain the final approval of the detailed I&C architecture. The AREVA-Siemens consortium regrets that TVO continues to not fulfill its obligations to allow for the project to advance properly. AREVA emphasizes that the EPR™ I&C offers major safety advancements and has already been approved by the French and British nuclear safety authorities. AREVA’s long-term experience in the construction of third generation nuclear reactors has shown that working hand in hand with the customers is a key factor to success. In China, the construction of the Taishan 1 & 2 EPR™ advances twice as fast as the Finnish project. MORE ABOUT AREVA supplies solutions for power generation with less carbon.
