Areva customizes integrated head assembly V.C. Summer nuclear plant

Areva was awarded a multi-million dollar contract to fabricate and install an integrated head assembly for South Carolina Electric and GasV.C. Summer nuclear power plant.

The device replaces existing components above the reactor vessel closure head and enables the entire component to be removed during a refueling outage in fewer steps. It is customized specifically for the Summer plant. Areva has installed 10 integrated head assemblies in the U.S., most recently at Ameren Missouri’s (NYSE: AEE) Callaway Energy Center.

The assembly is scheduled for delivery during a planned outage in 2017.
