PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
Orano has just signed a contract worth almost €100 million with EDF to supply services for the nuclear power plants of Paluel (Seine Maritime), Civaux (Vienne) and Gravelines (Nord) until 2024, with an option of two additional years.
In partnership with the companies Samsic and ARIS, Orano teams will be responsible for all industrial logistics to support operation of reactors on the Paluel and Civaux sites: radiation protection, waste management and conditioning, equipment management, etc.
At the Gravelines power plant, Orano will work with ARIS to install and remove thermal insulators and scaffolding at four of the site's six reactors, during maintenance and nuclear fuel replacement phases.
At peak times, services on the three sites will call on the skills of up to 350 employees from Orano DS, an Orano Group entity specialized in providing services to operational nuclear sites and those undergoing decommissioning.
Alain Vandercruyssen, Director of Orano Group's Dismantling and Services activities explains: "This contract is a reflection of our ambition to grow our services offering for the nuclear industry. The trust placed in us by EDF, the world's leading nuclear operator, is a mark of recognition of the daily expertise demonstrated by our teams in the nuclear sector, whether in terms of site logistics or maintenance of sensitive equipment."
