AREVA announced today that UT-Battelle, LLC, acting for the U.S. Department of Energy, has awarded the ITER Tokamak Cooling Water System design and fabrication management agreement to AREVA Federal Services.

ITER is a global collaboration to test the feasibility of nuclear fusion as an energy source. The project, the world’s largest experimental fusion reactor, is being designed and built in southeast France by the ITER partners: China, India, Japan, Russia, South Korea, the European Union, and the United States.

The scope of work for the five-year agreement, which has an option for five additional years, includes design, procurement, fabrication, and delivery of the Tokamak Cooling Water System for the ITER project.

“ITER is a highly important international project and is a major project initiative for AREVA. AREVA Federal Services has secured one of the largest projects within the U.S. scope and now joins other AREVA companies actively participating on ITER contracts,” said Bill Gallo, CEO of AREVA Federal Services.
