AREVA to deliver fuel assemblies to Gosgen nuclear power plant


AREVA has been awarded a contract for the fabrication of fuel assemblies for five reloads for the Gösgen nuclear power plant. In the frame of this supply contract, AREVA will deliver 180 fuel assemblies to the Swiss utility, Gösgen- Däniken AG (KKG), starting in 2018.

AREVA constructed the Gösgen nuclear power plant and has been fabricating its fuel elements since its startup in 1979. The group is currently retrofitting the reactor’s instrumentation and control technology using AREVA's digital safety I&C TELEPERM® XS system.

“This contract reinforces the solid relationship developed between the Gösgen- Däniken AG and AREVA. By successfully providing both reactor and fuel related services to this client, it confirms the competitiveness of the group’s integrated offer and strengthens our position as nuclear supplier in Switzerland,” explained Guillaume Dureau Senior Executive Vice President of AREVA’s Front End Business Group.
