Areva : New AREVA signs a MOX fuel fabrication contract with Japan

August 01, 2017

New AREVA has signed a contract with Japan's NFI (Nuclear Fuel Industries) for the fabrication of 32 MOX* fuel assemblies for the Takahama 3 and 4 reactors operated by Kansaï Electric.

The supply of MOX fuel assemblies for Kansaï is a follow-up to agreements signed with Japanese utilities from 1975 onwards for the treatment of up to 3,000 tonnes of used fuel at the la Hague site.

The Takahama nuclear power plant is located on the south-west coast of Japan, 350 km from Tokyo. It is equipped with 4 reactors. In July, a MOX convoy sailed from Cherbourg for Japan to supply this plant.

To date, 44 reactors across the world have generated electricity from MOX fuel since 1972: 38 in Europe, 5 in Japan, and 1 in the United States.

*MOX fuel is a mixture of uranium and plutonium oxides, offering a means of recycling the plutonium from used fuels.
