Lifetime Extension Solutions

In the coming years many utilities will face the scenario where their nuclear power plants (NPPs) will reach their initial design life.

The Lifetime Extension Solutions support customers to enable their plants to continue operation, generating income for many more years
. They include:

  • Verification of the plant’s entire concept
  • Verification of all safety-related components
  • Hardware measures, which may be necessary to operate the plant beyond its initial design life.


For over 30 years AREVA NP has successfully conducted lifetime extensions in numerous NPPs worldwide including pressurized water reactors (PWRs) and boiling water reactors (BWRs) as well as VVER and CANDU plants.
