Arrival of the MOX Shipment from France to Japan

Press release

September 21, 2017

Following their departure from Cherbourg Harbor, France, on July 5th 2017, the Pacific Heron and Pacific Egret safely arrived in Japan today. 

Teams from the Japanese utility Kansai Electric Power Company (Kepco) have unloaded the cargo of 16 MOX fuel assemblies supplied by New AREVA at the Takahama nuclear power plant.

The British company PNTL - of which New AREVA and its customer Kepco are shareholders – was responsible for the safety and security of the shipment from departure to arrival. 

Drawing on the group’s 50-year experience in nuclear transportation, this 6th MOX shipment to Japan once again bears witness to New AREVA’s ability to offer customers a successful organization to safely deliver MOX fuel assemblies fabricated at its Melox plant in France.
