AREVA (Paris:AREVA):

The NDA (Nuclear Decommissioning Authority) announced today the extension of
the contract for the management and operation of the Sellafield site by
Nuclear Management Partners (NMP) for another five years. This joint venture
combines the expertise of URS, AMEC, and AREVA.

NMP, through Sellafield Ltd., manages and operates the site on behalf of the
NDA since 2008. This scope includes reprocessing and waste storage facilities,
the former nuclear power stations Calder Hall and Windscale (Cumbria), as well
as the engineering design centre at Risley (Cheshire).

AREVA brings its expertise in various areas including operations, engineering,
and decommissioning.

With a workforce of 10,000 people, Sellafield is the largest nuclear site in
the United Kingdom and one of the world’s most complex nuclear sites. Over the
past five years, NMP and Sellafield Ltd. have gained a better understanding of
this challenging project, while achieving important objectives and
efficiencies. Some of operational milestones include the retrieval of spent
fuel from a legacy storage pond and the first returns of High Active Waste to
their country of origin. The site also achieved its best ever industrial
safety performance in 2012.
