Areva and Sogin sign reprocessing contract

17 May 2007

Italy’s nuclear facilities management company SOGIN has signed a contract worth over €250 million with Areva for the reprocessing of 235 tonnes of used nuclear fuel.

The contract follows the last year’s intergovernmental agreement between France and Italy covering the transport, reprocessing and packaging of used fuel from the Caorso, Trino and Garigliano facilities covering 190, 32 and 13 tonnes respectively.

First used fuel transport operations from Italy to Areva's La Hague plant will take place this year. After reprocessing operations, the vitrified waste will be returned to Italy by the end of 2025 at the latest.
