New AREVA is preparing the sixth shipment of MOX fuel from France to Japan. The MOX fuel was ordered by Japanese utility Kansai EPCO for unit 4 of the Takahama Nuclear Power Plant.
As agreed between all three governments (France, Japan and United Kingdom), the industrial side will implement a communication plan complying with both the need for transparency and, at the same time, obvious security constraints.
As follows :
- some days before actual departure: announcement of information related to the maritime shipment;
- after actual departure: announcement of maritime route and expected arrival date in Japan.
New AREVA and its partners have a longstanding experience in the transport of nuclear materials between Europe and Japan, in line with international regulations with the best safety and security records.
