            Electrical Energy solution: Electrical distribution and control for nuclear power plants

             

             

             

            Value proposition

             

             

            Main drivers

            • High growth potential due to investments in power generation in Asia
              - Nuclear market is moving from Europe and North America towards Asia (average of 6 reactors per year in China)
              - Need of high investments in China and India to support economic growth
              - 20% growth per year until 2010 (new plants, revamping and decommissioning)
            • The different markets
              - New projects of EPR reactors (European Pressurized Reactor) under EDF specifications in France (5 EPR), Italy (1 EPR), UK, Inde, Chine, South Africa, USA (2 EPR)
              - Other projects in China, India and Russia out of EPR
              - ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) and other research reactors
              - Nuclear plant retrofit : 25% of install based worldwide is more than 30 years old
                     France (EDF, 58 reactors) , South Africa (Koeberg), Korea (Uljin), USA, UK, Russia
              - Reactor life extension (up to 60 years) in Spain and France
              - Decommissioning projects in UK and France
