"This contract marks the beginning of a four-year outage services agreement and an important next step in the long-term relationship with the team at Farley," said Craig Ranson, senior vice president of AREVA NP's Installed Base Business Unit in the United States.
"Every day, our focus is on helping our customers maintain and improve the performance of their nuclear energy facilities.
