March 13, 2014

AREVA has signed an exclusive agreement with Novinium® to offer the nuclear industry cable rejuvenation technology and the related services. This partnership with Novinium, the global leader in this field, is the first alliance to provide nuclear power plants with a safe, innovative and cost-effective solution to extend the life of cable infrastructure.

As part of its “Forward Alliance” program for the optimization of nuclear power plant safety through the end of operations, AREVA will offer Novinium’s technology for the injection of fluid into the cabling. This solution offers extended cable life for a fraction of the cost and time it takes for traditional cable replacement.

“AREVA is always looking to improve the safety and performance of our solutions to meet the needs of our utility customers,” said Philippe Samama, AREVA’s Installed Base Business Division executive vice president. “This partnership with Novinium will help our customers increase the reliability of their cable infrastructure for the long term, a key component in the license renewal process.”

“Nuclear plant operators will now have streamlined access to the same proven methods which hundreds of Novinium’s customers worldwide have come to rely on for increasing cable reliability,“ said Glen Bertini, Novinium’s president and chief executive officer.
