The group’s Nuclear Engineering operations have been led by the AREVA Projects Business Unit since July 1, 2016. Within New AREVA, refocused on fuel cycle operations, this entity is one of the group’s six business units and combines engineering resources to serve the group’s facilities as well as external customers.

Its services range from operational support engineering to full Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Management (EPCM).

Its work concerns all of New AREVA’s operations: mining, uranium chemistry, enrichment, used fuel recycling, dismantling and waste management.

AREVA Projects also aims for reasonable growth in non-fuel-cycle nuclear engineering and in non-nuclear applications.
