Areva renews transformer supplier agreement with Northeast Utilities

Bethseda, Md., October 28, 2009 – Areva’s Transmission and Distribution division in the United States has signed an agreement to be the key supplier of single-phase autotransformers to Northeast Utilities through 2014.

This contract amendment is part of a framework agreement originally penned in 2006 providing operational and commercial terms for NU to procure Areva T&D transformers to support the New England East West Solution and other capital projects aimed at improving and expanding NU’s 115 to 345 kV network.

Since 2006, Areva T&D has supplied 20 single-phase transformers as well as three very large three-phase transformers to meet NU’s growing requirements for autotransformers.

Under the terms of the contract, Areva T&D will build transformers in their factory in Canoas, Brazil, and deliver the transformers to various transmission substations throughout NU’s operating territory in Connecticut, western Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Areva T&D will also provide the erection and commissioning services via its recently acquired RB Watkins service business.

Northeast Utilities, an energy company with headquarters in Connecticut, operates New England’s largest energy delivery system. NU is committed to safety, reliability, environmental leadership and stewardship, and expanding energy options for its more than two million electricity and natural gas customers.
