This morning EDF is unveiling “excell”, a plan that will drive the nuclear industry to achieve the highest standards of craftsmanship, quality and excellence. The execution of this plan will be overseen by a senior officer in charge of manufacturing standards, training and qualification, reporting directly to EDF’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. Excell will start being rolled out in 2020, with 100 million Euros being specifically earmarked for the period of 2020 – 2021.
