Sulzer awarded contract to deliver 28 pumping units to French nuclear plants
Electricité De France SA (EDF) and Sulzer have signed a contract for Sulzer to install more than a dozen new pumps to increase safety systems in French nuclear power plants.
The contract consists of qualifying a pump set prototype, manufacturing, and installing 28 pumping units over the next 15 years.
Sulzer Pompes France — which has more than 40 years of experience in the nuclear market — has been working on the project for more than one year involving sales, tendering, as well as engineering and operations.
The company designed a new pump with proven elements to meet unique EDF technical specifications.
The pumps will be manufactured in the Sulzer facility in Buchelay, France.
