Transfer of all AREVA GmbH activities with the exception of the Olkiluoto 3 project to Framatome GmbH

Effective November 1, 2017, all AREVA GmbH activities have been transferred to New NP GmbH, now Framatome GmbH, as part of a company-wide reorganization. The sole exception are the resources for completion of the Olkiluoto 3 nuclear power plant in Finland. Framatome GmbH has taken over all competencies of AREVA GmbH and thus continues to execute ongoing and planned projects as well as service and maintenance activities for safe, cost-effective operation of nuclear power plants worldwide (with the exception of the Olkiluoto 3 project). AREVA GmbH will exclusively retain the requisite resources for completion of the Olkiluoto 3 plant.

Why did the reorganization take place?

The reorganization of AREVA S.A. enabled Électricité de France S.A. (EDF) to acquire a majority stake in Framatome’s reactor business by the end of 2017. Other stakes were acquired by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Assystem S.A.

What did happen with personnel?

AREVA GmbH personnel not working on the Olkiluoto 3 project has been transferred to New NP GmbH (now Framatome GmbH) effective November 1, 2017. All personnel working on the Olkiluoto 3 project will follow after completion of their specific tasks in this project and will change to Framatome GmbH individually.

What will happen with customer, supplier and business partner contracts?

All contracts with no specific link to the Olkiluoto 3 project have been transferred to Framatome GmbH. In Summer 2017, detailed written information was communicated to customers and suppliers, which contained a request to agree to the transfer of the contract.

If you have not already given consent to the transfer of your contract, you will find the appropriate document below.

What will happen with guarantees and warranties?

Framatome GmbH honors all guarantees and warranties associated with the contracts.

What will happen if consent to the transfer of a contract is not given?

Effective November 1, 2017, AREVA GmbH will no longer have resources for projects, other than those for Olkiluoto 3. For that reason, the transfer of all other contracts to Framatome GmbH is necessary.

“New NP“ became Framatome

New NP GmbH was an interim solution for the period from November 1, 2017 to January 29, 2018. On January 30, 2018, the company was renamed in Framatome GmbH.
