An Overview of Areva’s Opportunity for FDI
Front End: Mining, conversion, and enrichment
AREVA and KEPCO have a joint venture to develop a uranium mine in Niger. KEPCO will use this mine to supply the nuclear power stations it has built around the world.
Reactors & Services: Construction and operation of plants
KEPCO entered into a memorandum of understanding to build turnkey nuclear power plants for PLN, the state-owned electric utility which will transmit and distribute the electricity generated by the power plant.
Back End: Fuel recycling, reprocessing, and treatment
Reprocessing and treatment creates new energy resources from 96% of the content of spent nuclear fuel and stores the remaining 4% (final waste). Areva is the world leader in nuclear fuel recycling; KEPCO does not offer this service line.
