As the operation time of nuclear power plants (NPPs) increases, spare parts, which were qualified at the time of erection, become obsolete due to lacking original equipment manufacturer (OEM) support. With growing operation time the amount of these obsolete spares increases. Especially spare parts of safety-related equipment are critical when there is no OEM support or the OEM ceased business.


AREVA NP’s Qualification of Standard Equipment qualifies available standard parts for the specific purpose according to regulatory, safety and operational requirements.
This process is also known as commercial-grade dedication.

Your benefits

  • Instead of exchanging a whole component due to lacking spare parts supply a qualification of standard parts often is more cost-effective and allows to extend the spare parts supply basis
  • Fulfills IEC 62402
