The Flamanville EPR (European Pressurised Reactor) is the first site in France to install a new generation of nuclear reactors. This is in line with plans to upgrade EDF’s French nuclear facilities.
This new reactor incorporates recent advances in environmental protection, technical and economic efficiency and above all safety. It makes more efficient use of the fuel and reduces radioactive discharges by 30%.
Employee safety is of prime importance in this reactor. Environmental protection combined with regard for the health and safety of company personnel contribute towards efficient and safe reactor operation.
Consequently the plant requires radiation protection equipment that will be used by personnel when the reactor starts operating at the end of 2018. Having already experimented their equipment in existing plants, EDF showed full confidence in once again calling on the expertise of Bertin Technologies for its new reactor.
