 Areva TN to Supply Used Nuclear Fuel Storage System

Areva TN signed two $200 million long-term contracts with U.S. utilities to supply used fuel storage solutions.
Areva will supply its NUHOMS dry-shielded canisters and the NUHOMS horizontal storage system, which will house the canisters on site. The canisters are designed to store fuel assemblies from pressurized water reactors, including high-burnup, short-cooled fuel.
In the U.S., nearly 1,000 used fuel canisters are currently loaded at more than 30 sites.
