Areva unit announces organizational changes

Transnuclear Inc., an Areva company that delivers solutions for the transportation and storage of radioactive materials to utility customers, on April 5 announced organizational and leadership changes.

Transnuclear developed three business lines they said will align with customers’ needs. The first is the Front-End (FE) business line. This line provides transportation, packaging, and other logistical services for materials in the front-end of the nuclear fuel cycle and for research reactor materials.

The second is the Reactors and Services (R&S) business line. R&S provides nuclear facility operators pool-to-pad services, Horizontal Storage Module (HSM) on-site fabrication / assembly, wet fuel storage racks and related services for the storage and transfer of Used Nuclear Fuel (UNF) and radioactive materials in support of on-site operations.

The third is the Back-End (BE) business line. The BE line provides design, licensing, subcontracted fabrication, and delivery of equipment necessary to furnish UNF dry storage solutions. The BE line is also responsible for transportation of radioactive material for the back end of the fuel cycle.

The business lines are supported by five transverse organizations aligned under Operations Support. These transverse organizations are Design Engineering, Fabrication Control, Fleet Asset Management, Field Services & Operations, and Transportation.

In order to support this new organizational structure, Transnuclear also announced the following personnel changes:

Jeff Hays has been named Vice President, Back-End Business Line

Bill Tench has been named Manager, Reactors & Services Business Line

Clark Vanderniet has been named Director, Regulatory Affairs
