Argentina pre-qualifies ATMEA1 nuclear plant

12 July 2012

Argentina is considering the 1100 MW AREVA/MHI ATMEA1 pressurized water reactor (PWR) for the country’s fourth nuclear power plant.

The national utility Nucleoeléctrica Argentina (NA-SA) has pre-qualified the ATMEA1 technology for the next request for proposals that will be issued for the construction of its fourth NPP, the reactor vendor announced.

“After Jordan pre-selection of the ATMEA1 design last May and as confirmed by the recent positive statement of the French Safety Authority ASN on the ATMEA1 reactor’s safety options, this NA-SA decision confirms the trust being placed in the ATMEA1 technology,” said Philippe Namy, ATMEA president.
