AREVA has signed a long-term contract with the PSEG Nuclear for outage services for the three reactors at the Salem and Hope Creek nuclear generating stations in Salem County, New Jersey.
The scope of work covers refueling, inspections, and steam generator maintenance. The first operations will begin in fall 2013. As part of these activities, AREVA will provide services for two pressurized water reactors and a boiling water reactor.
PSEG Nuclear’s facility is the second largest in the United States (more than 3,500 MWe). The three units generate enough power for approximately three million homes each day.
“We are proud to provide to PSEG and the U.S. nuclear industry competitive and quality solutions to improve the safety and reliability of nuclear plant operations over the long term,” said Philippe Samama, AREVA Installed Base Business Unit executive vice president. “This contract is recognition of our culture of safety as well as advanced engineering and service capabilities.”
