AREVA NP and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI): 19th technical meeting on components manufacturing

From June 20-22, AREVA NP and MHI teams met in Kobe (Japan) to share information and exchange on heavy and mobile components manufacturing for nuclear islands. It was also an opportunity to visit MHI premises.

During the meeting, employees from the Technical and Engineering and Components Business Units discussed technical matters such as control rod drive mechanisms, machining and welding techniques in the objective of continuous improvement.

A bilateral agreement was signed with MHI in May 2017, to renew technical meetings (TEM) over a five year period.

The next edition will take place in Saint-Marcel in 2018.
