New Fuel Field Services Outage Equipment and Support Center
A newly developed Fuel Field Services Outage Equipment and Support Center is now available at the AREVA Solutions Complex (ASC) in Lynchburg, VA. From design, fabrication, equipment assembly, testing/qualification and refurbishment to inspection and repair of fuel products, the center offers a wide range of capabilities to serve utilities’ specific needs. Included are a mechanical workshop, electrical workshop, warehouse equipment storage, control rooms and a contamination zone for refurbishment and testing of equipment. AREVA invested $1M in the Fuel Field Services Center, the second innovation launched at the ASC within the past 12 months, in addition to the U.S. Technical Center. These expansions have been made possible by moving fuel manufacturing activities to Richland, WA, and optimizing growth plans to better serve AREVA’s customers.
"AREVA has been a part of the nuclear industry working to provide safer technologies and services for a long time," said Paul Myers, Senior Vice President, Front End, AREVA Inc. "Our commitment is to support our electric utility customers in their efforts to continue supplying safe, reliable and affordable nuclear energy, and we will continue to do so with the expansion of the Fuel Field Services group at the AREVA Solutions Complex."
The U.S. Technical Center and Fuel Field Services Center are just two of the numerous investments by AREVA to strengthen and reiterate our long-term commitment to the U.S. nuclear industry.
