onet technologies: French companies formalize agreements for nuclear power plant Jaitapur under Make in India
Apave, ESI Group and Onet Technologies formalized their collaboration through the MINS (Make in India Nuclear Supply Chain Support) alliance at WNE (World Nuclear Exhibition) 2021 to create a joint value proposition to respond to the six EPR- Build reactors at the Jaitapur site.
Philippe Maillard, CEO of APAVE Group, Emmanuel Leroy, EVP Product, Innovation & Industry Solutions of ESI Group and Alain Gauvin, CEO of ONET Technologies, signed on Wednesday at WNE 2021 with the participation of Xavier Ursat, Group Senior Executive Vice President, New Nuclear Projects and Engineering, EDF, a joint declaration of intent to structure the MINS alliance and thus bundle their competencies in the outstanding Indian EPR market at the Jaitapur location.
In April 2021, EDF submitted a binding technical and commercial offer to NCPIL (Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited – India’s state-owned nuclear company) for the construction of six EPR reactors (Pressurized Water Reactor) in India at the Jaitapur site in Maharashtra. With an installed capacity of 9.6 GW it would produce up to 75 TWh per year and cover the annual consumption of 70 million Indian households, while avoiding the emission of around 80 million tons of CO2 per year.
Based on more than forty years of experience in the nuclear sector, APAVE, ESI Group and ONET Technologies have bundled their skills and know-how: in nuclear technology for ONET Technologies, in accordance with regulatory and non-regulatory safety requirements for APAVE, and in virtual prototyping Skills for the ESI Group to put them at the service of the project.
This combination enables the MINS Alliance to offer Indian manufacturers, designers and fitters a complete range of services (“one-stop-shop” approach), from support in the design of systems and devices to commissioning, including support with manufacturing processes and Monitoring, numerical simulations to support component dimensioning as well as quality controls and regulatory controls.
