Areva signs deals to help build nuclear power plant in India

Areva signed two agreements to help build the Jaitapur nuclear power project in India.
Areva signed a pre-engineering agreement (PEA) contract with Indian operator Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) to prepare the license for Areva’s European Pressurized Reactor (EPR) for the Jaitapur project. The studies will help both companies to finalize the technical configuration of the project.
Areva and India’s engineering and construction company Larsen & Toubro also signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to explore avenues of collaboration for the project.
Areva and NPCIL signed an MOU in 2009 for a partnership to build six nuclear EPRs at the Jaitapur site. A General Framework Agreement for construction of the first two EPRs was signed in December 2010.
