AREVA signs agreement with UK National Grid

5 May 2010

AREVA's T&D division has signed a strategic partnership with the UK division of National Grid, one of the world’s largest investor-owned energy companies, to develop 3D training modules to familiarise employees with products.

In May 2008, National Grid ordered a high voltage gas-insulated substation from Areva and subsequently required an efficient method of providing new employees with essential product knowledge, as well as maintaining the level of current employees.

The Areva T&D Technical Institute demonstrated the innovative training benefits that 3D development can provide, owing to techniques used in the manufacture of certain Areva product lines.

This partnership wlll promote what will be the first 3D training module in the transmission and distribution industry. The module will be developed and implemented at the National Grid training center in Eakring, United Kingdom.

“Through this new agreement, we provide National Grid with our most advanced technology and thus further reinforce the long-standing co-operation between our two companies” said Gerhard Seyrling, vp for Innovation & Performance Improvement at Areva T&D.
