AREVA has temporarily reduced its activities at a nuclear power plant in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

This is due to delays in securing financing for Eletrobrás Eletronuclear’s (ETN) Angra 3 project, the company said.

The Angra nuclear power plant consists of two pressurised water reactors, Angra 1 and Angra 2; Angra 3 is the third reactor.

The French firm added it would resume all project activities as soon as ETN secures a financial solution.

An agreement signed by AREVA and ETN in 2013 includes the supply of engineering services, components and the reactor’s instrumentation and control system.
