25 January 2012

SNC-Lavalin Nuclear has signed a US$47 million contract with Romania’s Societatea Nationala Nuclearelectrica (SNN) to install reactor containment filtered venting systems (CFVS) at the Cernavoda nuclear power plant.

“This project is part of an industry-wide upgrade strategy for nuclear plant safety in the event of serious accidents or natural disasters, such as those that occurred at Fukushima in Japan,” said Patrick Lamarre, executive vice-president, SNC-Lavalin Group Inc.

Engineering and procurement activities are already underway, according to Canadian engineering firm. Construction is scheduled to begin immediately, with preparations for the work to be carried out in the next unit outages. The expected completion date is late 2013.
