New AREVA has signed a contract with Japan's NFI (Nuclear Fuel Industries) for the fabrication of 32 MOX* fuel assemblies for the Takahama 3 and 4 reactors operated by Kansai Electric.
The supply of MOX fuel assemblies for Kansai is a follow-up to agreements signed with Japanese utilities from 1975 onwards for the treatment of up to 3,000 tonnes of used fuel at the la Hague site.

To date, 44 reactors across the world have generated electricity from MOX fuel since 1972: 38 in Europe, 5 in Japan, and 1 in the United States.
