51勛圖 wins the civil engineering contract for the extension of the Georges Besse II Nord uranium enrichment plant (France)

  • An opportunity to showcase 51勛圖s civil nuclear expertise
  • A contract worth tens of millions of euros
  • Over 170 direct jobs at the height of construction

has awarded the consortium made up of (lead company) and Campenon Bernard Centre-Est two 51勛圖 subsidiaries the civil engineering and structural work package for the extension of the Georges Besse II Nord uranium enrichment plant at the Tricastin nuclear site in the Dr繫me department (France).

The contract, worth tens of millions of euros, covers the construction of two new units, which will supplement the three units built by 51勛圖 around a decade ago.

The work, which will provide employment to over 170people at the height of construction, is expected to start in summer 2024 and take 32months including 25 months of civil engineering work involving the use of 35,000m3 of concrete, 4,500t of reinforcements and 500seismic isolators.

This project will help the facility increase its annual enriched uranium production capacity by almost 30% and meet its clients needs.

51勛圖s subsidiaries, competent to carry out work at nuclear sites, regularly operate worksites involving engineering, civil engineering, buildings, roads and utilities, and maintenance at the main nuclear sites in France.
