AREVA wins German nuclear storage contract


AREVA has signed a series of contracts in Germany for the delivery of more than 70 TN24E used fuel storage casks, for a total value greater than 200 million euros.

Dedicated to the transportation and storage of used nuclear fuel (uranium oxide or MOX), these steel containers are designed to withstand extreme conditions and offer clients a very high level of performance and flexibility.

The German Federal Office for Radiation Protection recently approved the use of the TN24E which allows a foreign company to access, for the first time, the market for used fuel management in Germany.

“We are proud to provide our expertise in used fuel to our long-time German customers. With the certification in Germany of the TN24E casks, AREVA has access to a new market, and the group is well positioned to propose a comprehensive end of fuel cycle offer to its German customers,” said Dominique Mockly, Senior Executive Vice-President for AREVA’s Back End activities.
