 Chinese investors possibly interested in Areva’s business

Three Chinese organizations have expressed interest in different parts of Areva’s business as the French company undergoes restructuring.
 
China General Nuclear Power Corp. and China National Nuclear Corp. are open to all forms of cooperation, while Dongfang Electric Corp. is looking to purchase or form a joint venture with Areva for its facilities that build vats and generators, according to Reuters.
 
Areva, which is 87 percent state-owned, reported a 4.8 billion euros ($5.3 billion) loss in March due to several delayed nuclear projects and hesitation toward the nuclear industry since the 2011 accident at the Fukushima Daiichi plant in Japan.
