Browns Ferry fuel contract for AREVA

12 September 2014

US utility Tennessee Valley Authority has awarded AREVA a $250 million contract to supply nuclear fuel for three boiling water reactors at Browns Ferry nuclear plant in Alabama.

The scope of the contract includes nine nuclear fuel reloads of the ATRIUM 10XM design as well as the supply of core monitoring technology and related services, says AREVA.

The fuel will be fabricated at AREVA's Richland, Washington facility, with the first deliveries expected in 2017.

TVA will later have the option to select the next generation ATRIUM 11 design, which is already being used by three European utilities, and is being introduced to the US market.
