AREVA announced today the opening of a new office in Chattanooga, Tenn., to increase its regional engineering, project and service support to customers in the Southeastern United States. Located in downtown Chattanooga, the new AREVA office has capacity for enhancing technical capabilities and logistics with space for expansion.

“AREVA is committed to providing world-class solutions for clean power generation and continues to invest and create jobs across the United States. Our new office in Chattanooga will support our mission to help our customers produce clean, reliable, cost effective energy.” said Mike Rencheck, chief operating officer of AREVA Inc.

AREVA subsidiary CANBERRA Industries, Inc., a developer and manufacturer of radiation detection solutions, also announced the transition of its safeguards and military product development and manufacturing to its Oak Ridge, Tenn. facility.  The company also expects to more than double the number of employees at the facility within one year.

CANBERRA has focused on Oak Ridge because of its close proximity to Department of Energy sites, including Oak Ridge National Laboratory, a safeguards and nuclear research hub, as well as other key customers such as the Tennessee Valley Authority.

AREVA is the world leader in nuclear energy and a rapidly growing player in renewable energy solutions with approximately 5,000 U.S. employees.
