New Challenges, Proven Solutions

You can protect the public and protect your assets. Plant sites worldwide are already experiencing enhanced safety and efficiency from AREVA’s wide range of existing products and global resources. In fact, AREVA has a proven track record of customizing innovative solutions that are tailored to each plant’s specific requirements. From prevention to mitigation and emergency preparedness, AREVA adds value by complementing your existing capabilities.


Complete SFP Instrumentation Solutions, Proven, Robust, Simple

Utilities are searching for safe, reliable, simple, and economical Spent Fuel Pool (SFP) monitoring solutions. Our solution is a commonly used through-air radar based on proven technology from the number one level measurement provider, VEGA Americas, Inc.

Passive Shutdown Seal

AREVA has performed rigorous testing and qualification programs for its simplified design and easy-to-install Passive Shutdown Seal (PSDS) for Reactor Coolant Pumps (RCPs). In fact, this innovation is available now for installation as part of a design change package to enhance your existing hydrostatic seal.

Transnuclear NUHOMS® Dry Fuel Storage

The possible challenge: In the event of a seismic or flooding scenario at your plant, the integrity of your spent fuel storage system could be severely compromised.

Hardened Vents

The possible challenge: All plants with a Mark I or Mark II containment must submit an integrated plan for implementing a reliable hardened vent system to the NRC by February 2013. But the time and cost required to develop a detailed plan can be a daunting task.


Passive Autocatalytic Recombiner (PAR)

The possible challenge: In the unlikely event of severe accidents due to loss of coolant accident (LOCA), large amounts of hydrogen could release in your reactor containment, leading to a high concentration of explosive gas which might ultimately affect the integrity of your containment.

Emergency Preparedness

Task Force Recommendations 2.1 & 2.3

The possible challenge: The NRC’s 50.54(f) letters require engineering analyses and walkdowns to respond to Near-Term Task Force Recommendations 2.1 & 2.3. The result? Utilities could experience an impact to their plants’ budget and resources.

CANBERRA’s SafePoint™ Systems

The possible challenge: Outdated radiation monitoring equipment could delay communication of radiological conditions, hindering decision-making and causing unwarranted confusion and public concern.

Filtered Containment Venting System (FCVS)

The possible challenge: A severe accident at your plant could result in pressure build up inside containment that causes leakage or even containment failure.
