Areva dedicated its new Fuel Field Services support center at its Solutions Complex in Lynchburg, Va.
The service and technology area will be known as the Fuel Field Services Outage Equipment and Support Center and will be used for design, fabrication, refurbishment and testing of equipment used to provide at-reactor measurement, inspection, repair, and testing of fuel assemblies.
The expansion was completed in eight months and cost about $1 million in capital.
The Fuel Field Services group provides inspection, reconstitution and repair of fuel assemblies and core components at reactor sites. The group also provides products and services to customers as part of joint industry development programs.
