AREVA opens North American Center of Excellence

LA PRAIRIE, QUEBEC - AREVAÂ’s Transmission and Distribution (T&D) Division has created a center of excellence at its existing site in La Prairie, Quebec.

As of December 1st, 2007, Protection, Substation Automation and associated service activities, currently conducted out of AREVA‘s Bethlehem, Pennsylvania facility in the U.S., are transferred to its La Prairie site.

All AREVA‘s Measurement Products (usually conducted under the BiTRONICS brand) will continue to be designed, manufactured, delivered and served from AREVA’s factory in Bethlehem and are not affected by the transfer.

AREVAÂ’s North American Protection and Control Center of Excellence will act as the repair, maintenance and technical support center for the full installed base of Protection products and Substation Automation systems in North America.

Damien Tholomier, Commercial Director of AREVA’s North American Automation products said, “We are constantly striving to provide quality, reliable and high-performance products and systems, along with outstanding service based on fast response critical to operations. The creation of this center of excellence in our existing site in La Prairie, Montreal is just another example of AREVA’s dedication to its North American customers.”
