AREVA has signed a contract worth 1.25 billion euros with the Brazilian electrician Eletrobras Eletronuclear for the completion of the construction for the Angra 3 reactor, located in the state of Rio de Janeiro.

AREVA will supply engineering services and components, as well as the digital instrumentation and control system for the reactor. The group will also provide assistance in the supervision of the installation works and the commissioning activities.

This contract, which attests to AREVA's expertise in reactor construction, design, and fabrication of nuclear equipment and instrumentation and control systems, corresponds to the 103 reactor built by the group in the world.

"AREVA is proud to have been selected to complete the construction of the third Brazilian nuclear reactor and to continue its collaboration with Eletrobras Eletronuclear that began with the construction and the supply of reactor services to the Angra 2 reactor*. The completion of Angra 3 confirms Brazil's engagement in an ambitious nuclear program and illustrates the relevance of this energy source as a solution for sustainable economic development," said Luc Oursel, president and CEO of AREVA.
