Sweden: AREVA Wins a Contract to Supply Fuel to Vattenfall
PARIS -- May 28, 2014
The utility Vattenfall has selected AREVA (Paris:AREVA) to supply fuel
assemblies for four of its seven reactors in Sweden.
The contract for four years' supply covers the period 2016-2020 and includes
services associated with the fuel supply. AREVA will manufacture the
assemblies in Germany, at its plant in Lingen.
Through this cooperation, Vattenfall is securing a significant portion of its
nuclear fuel supply over the long term. "By choosing AREVA as a main supplier,
Vattenfall confirms the confidence it places in our products and services, for
the supply of boiling water reactors (BWRs) and pressurized water reactors
(PWRs)," said Stefan vom Scheidt, CEO of AREVA in Germany.
In parallel, with a view to meeting its future fuel needs, Vattenfall is
pushing ahead at the Swedish Ringhals power plant with irradiation of GAIA
lead prototype fuel assemblies, a new fuel design developed by AREVA for PWRs.
