AREVA and Synatom, a subsidiary of Engie group, have signed a contract worth several millions of euros for the design and manufacture of 30 TN24 used fuel transportation and dry storage casks for the Belgian nuclear power plants Doel 3 and 4 and Tihange 1, 2 and 3.

The contract also includes an option of additional casks up to 2030.

This contract has been won as part of a request for proposals putting in competition the main market players.

AREVA is supplying Synatom with an innovative container design adapted to the MOX fuel loading (Mixed OXides) and meets the most restrictive safety criteria.

TN24 casks are designed for the transport and dry storage of used fuel assemblies under optimal conditions of operational safety and efficiency.

"The signing of this contract once again demonstrates the confidence of Engie group in our innovative and competitive solutions", declared Frederic de Agostini, Director of AREVA's nuclear logistics operations.

"This contract marks the continuity of our longstanding collaboration which dates back over 30 years."
