A Global Success with Many Projects to Prove it: Nuclear Competence from Germany

AREVA GmbH in Germany makes a major contribution to the safe and competitive operation of nuclear power plants due to the fact that the company unites numerous key competences. These include safety instrumentation and control (I&C) and electrical systems, maintenance and retrofitting of nuclear power plants, the development and production of fuel assemblies, as well as unique test and research facilities for safety investigations. Additionally, AREVA GmbH is a strong partner for the decommissioning of nuclear power plants.

The German expertise is respected globally. Therefore, German nuclear technology is used in numerous projects, both in the home market and abroad. With this export strategy, AREVA GmbH makes a significant contribution to maintaining the competencies in nuclear technology in Germany. Nuclear competencies will be needed even after the nuclear phase-out, for example for the dismantling and final repository with domestic resources.

In addition to nuclear technology, AREVA GmbH is also driving the development of hydrogen and battery systems for storing energy. The company offers solutions for non-nuclear industries in the areas of IT security, materials technology and testing, component testing and qualification, and monitoring and diagnostics.
