The Installed Base and Instrumentation & Control Business Units performed better in the United States and Germany (80% export) in a very competitive market. Installed Base was affected by an increase in the execution costs of certain exports projects and in France.
The profitability of the Component Manufacturing Business Unit improved due to the increase in the production of equipment for replacement steam generators and new projects.
The Fuel Business Unit benefited from maintaining its production levels and the delivery of fuel assemblies for the Taishan EPRs in China.
The Large Projects Business Unit is growing with the ramp-up of the Hinkley Point C EPR project in England, which offsets the drop in activity linked to the commissioning of Taishan in China.
