Press Release

January 11, 2017

Washington, D.C., January 11, 2017 – As part of the continuing global transformation of AREVA into two separate entities, New AREVA today announced the formation of AREVA Nuclear Materials, LLC, (ANM) as its subsidiary in the United States. Sam Shakir has been appointed as ANM Chief Executive Officer. ANM is headquartered in Washington, D.C.

AREVA Nuclear Materials contains five business lines:

  • AREVA D&D (Decommissioning & Dismantling), based in Washington, D.C., applies global D&D expertise to the U.S. market, including the planned dismantling of the Vermont Yankee reactor vessel during decommissioning.
  • TN Americas (formerly AREVA TN), based in Maryland, is a global provider of storage, transportation and field services for used nuclear fuel and radioactive waste, with its NUHOMS® used nuclear fuel storage system securely operating at more than 30 U.S. sites.
  • AREVA Federal Services (AFS), based in North Carolina, provides nuclear fuel cycle technologies and environmental management services to the U.S. federal government, and is a key partner in the MOX Services consortium building the MOX Fuel Fabrication Facility (MFFF) in South Carolina.
  • Mining, Conversion, Enrichment (MCE) Sales, based in Virginia, is a competitive provider of long-term nuclear fuel supply contracts for U.S. utility customers.
  • AREVA Med, based in Texas, is developing cancer-fighting isotopes for radioimmunotherapy, with research progressing for the next phase of FDA approval.

In 2016, the businesses now grouped in ANM generated more than $900 million in sales from U.S. activities. ‎The global companies of New AREVA and AREVA NP are being created through the transformation of AREVA SA business lines into these two separate entities.

With more than 25 years of operational and commercial business management experience, Shakir has held several senior executive management positions within the global AREVA Group. Throughout his career, Shakir has actively developed businesses, deployed new technologies, arranged financing of large deals, and led project and engineering organizations in various energy sectors.‎

“The United States represents an important and strategic market,” said Shakir. “Our diverse portfolio of businesses leveraging advanced global production facilities and creative nuclear material technologies provide a strong and sustainable platform for growing our business in the U.S. market.”
