AREVA WINS CONTRACT FOR SERVICES AT FARLEY NUCLEAR POWER PLANT, ALABAMA
Areva NP signed a contract with Southern Nuclear to provide outage services at the Joseph M. Farley Nuclear Generating Station units 1 & 2 between 2017 and 2021. Over the course of six outages, Areva NP will provide refueling, steam generator and specialty non-destructive examination services, inspection and reactor coolant pump services that support the Farley plant in providing carbon-free and reliable electricity to Alabama’s grid.
The Joseph M. Farley Nuclear Generating Station is located near Dothan, Alabama in the southern United States. Construction of the two-unit plant started in 1970. Unit 1 began commercial operation in December 1977. Unit 2 began commercial operation in July 1981. Each unit is capable of generating 900 megawatts for a total capacity of 1,800 mw. The plant is powered by pressurized water reactors manufactured by Westinghouse. In 2005, Plant Farley’s operating license was extended by the NRC for an additional 20 years.
