AREVA and EDF announce the signature of two contracts which make a significant contribution to securing the long-term supply of natural uranium to EDF nuclear facilities.
Under the terms of these agreements, AREVA will supply more than 30,000 tonnes of natural uranium to EDF for the period from 2014 to 2035, one of the largest deliveries of uranium ever carried out by AREVA. These contracts thus further consolidate AREVA’s position as a key partner to the world's leading supplier of nuclear power, and secure EDF's natural uranium supply over the very long-term.
Luc Oursel, CEO of AREVA, declared: “these contracts are further proof of the trust which EDF, our leading customer and partner, places in our range of competitive and long-term solutions, enabling them to ensure its supplies are secure.”
Henri Proglio, Chairman and CEO of EDF, stated: “these agreements are part of the implementation of the strategic partnership established with AREVA at the start of the year. They represent an essential contribution to the EDF Group's security of supply and demonstrate the unity of the French nuclear sector."
