Brazil: AREVA temporarily reduces activities at the Angra 3 project

AREVA has temporarily reduced its activities for Eletrobrás Eletronuclear’s (ETN) Angra 3 nuclear power plant project, located in the Brazilian state of Rio de Janeiro. Under the agreement signed by AREVA and ETN in 2013, this concerns the supply of engineering services and components, as well as the reactor’s instrumentation and control system.

This temporary cutback is due to delays encountered in securing financing for the remainder of the project’s activities.

As soon as ETN secures a sustainable financial solution, AREVA will resume all project activities.
