Power plant design and construction
EDF offers unrivalled experience in nuclear power plant design and construction. The Group uses its industrial engineering capabilities to continuously improve power plants in operation.
A great variety of operations are required to supply nuclear power plants with fuel, including uranium extraction, processing and transport and spent fuel re-processing and recycling. EDF’s fuel cycle capabilities are supported by a network of safe, efficient, long-term industrial partners.
EDF assumes full technical and financial responsibility for decommissioning nuclear power plants at the end of their life. Nine sites are currently being decommissioned to prepare the renewal of the fleet.
