AREVA and ATOX team up for Japanese nuclear decommissioning

6 May 2014

AREVA and ATOX, the pioneer in maintenance services for nuclear facilities in Japan, have announced the creation of a 50:50 joint venture for decontamination and decommissioning of Japanese nuclear power plants.

The ANADEC (AREVA And ATOX Decommissioning Company) joint venture will operate as early as this year at the damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant.

The two companies will combine their expertise to contribute to the stabilization of the situation at the Fukushima site and its clean-up. AREVA will provide its know-how and technology in the field of decommissioning while ATOX, with its strong local presence and expertise in engineering and on- ite operations, will adapt the solutions proposed by AREVA to the specific needs of Japan.

In particular, services offered include:

  • Development of investigative and mapping techniques in order to gain a better understanding of the particular work environment that the Fukushima plant represents.
  • Development of robotic solutions that will speed up the dismantling of difficult to reach areas.
