Context and challenges
Flamanville 3 is the first EPR (European Pressurised Reactor) project in France. Construction began on this next-generation reactor in 2007.
EPR construction in France will satisfy the need to invest in new production capacities to ensure the security of our energy supply, and is an essential step in preparations to renew the nuclear fleet. The EPR is based on existing techniques. It incorporates all the recent progress that has been made in terms of safety, environmental protection and technical and economic performance,to deliver safe, competitive electricity production with no greenhouse gas emissions.
The client, a major player in the nuclear sector, called on Assystem for a PMO mission on behalf of the FA3 development department.
