AREVA Successfully Delivers Two Steam Generators to Three Mile Island Generating Station

October 2, 2009 

AREVA is pleased to announce the successful delivery of two Enhanced Once-Through Steam Generators to the Three Mile Island Generating Station (TMI) in Dauphin County, Pa. on Sept. 30.

The steam generators arrived safely and on schedule after an eight-week trip that began at AREVA’s Chalon/St-Marcel facility in France, where they were manufactured. These technically advanced steam generators were manufactured according to Exelon’s requirements. The replacement steam generators are an integral part of a $300 million investment Exelon is making in the TMI Unit 1 reactor to extend the plant’s operations for decades to come. The trip culminated with a 75-mile journey over land that began Sept. 8 in Port Deposit, Md. and travelled through four counties and 17 municipalities in Maryland and Pennsylvania before arriving at TMI.

“This was the most challenging largecomponent delivery in AREVA’s history,” said George Beam, Chief Operating Officer of AREVA NP Inc. “Delivering these generators required complex logistics involving government and regulatory agencies in two states and numerous local communities and authorities. We are proud to have played a key role in Exelon Nuclear’s renovation of TMI Unit 1.”
