Framatome has signed a contract to design, fabricate and supply fuel assemblies using enriched reprocessed uranium to French utility EDF between 2023 and 2032. Framatome noted the project is subject to administrative and regulatory authorisations. The fuel assemblies – to be produced at Framatome’s facility at Romans-sur-Isère in the Drôme region of France – will incorporate uranium that has been derived from the reprocessing of used fuel at the La Hague plant. Once enriched, this uranium can be used again to fuel nuclear power reactors. EDF is to use the fuel assemblies in a number of its reactors, which have been authorised to use such fuel.
