Background Information on Reorganization

Transfer of all AREVA GmbH Activities with the Exception of the Olkiluoto 3 Project to New NP GmbH

Effective November 1, 2017, all AREVA GmbH activities has been transferred to New NP GmbH as part of a company-wide reorganization. The sole exceptions were the resources for completion of the Olkiluoto 3 nuclear power plant (Olkiluoto 3 project) in Finland. New NP GmbH has taken over all competencies of AREVA GmbH and thus continue to execute ongoing and planned projects as well as service and maintenance activities for safe, cost-effective operation of nuclear power plants worldwide (with the exception of the Olkiluoto 3 project). AREVA GmbH exclusively retained the requisite resources for completion of the Olkiluoto 3 project.

Why is the reorganization taking place?

The reorganization of AREVA will enable Électricité de France (EDF) to acquire a majority stake in New NP’s reactor business by the end of this year. Other stakes will be acquired by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Assystem SA.

What will happen with personnel?

AREVA GmbH personnel not working on the Olkiluoto 3 project will be transferred to New NP GmbH effective November 1, 2017. All Olkiluoto 3 personnel will follow after completion of their specific work on the project and transfer to New NP GmbH.

What will happen with customer, supplier and business partner contracts?

All contracts with no specific link to the Olkiluoto 3 project will be transferred to New NP GmbH. In Summer 2017, detailed written information was communicated to customers and suppliers, which contained a request to to transfer the contract.
