Russia’s ASE Group, the engineering subsidiary of state nuclear corporation Rosatom, on 20 June signed a memorandum of cooperation with French engineering company Assystem for the promotion of engineering solutions based on ASE's Multi-D project management system technology.

The two companies will co-operate in the design, construction and commissioning of NPPs outside Russia. Assystem said the agreement will allow the two companies to cooperate also in areas such as engineering- and supply-chain management, development of research reactors and decommissioning of nuclear power plants. The memorandum was signed on the sidelines of the Atomexpo Forum in Moscow.
