Apave, ESI Group (Paris:ESI) and Onet Technologies have formalized, at the WNE (World Nuclear Exhibition) 2021, their collaboration, through the MINS (Make in India Nuclear supply chain Support) alliance, to build a common value proposition in order to respond to the project to create six EPR reactors on the Jaitapur site in western India.

Philippe Maillard, CEO of APAVE Group, Emmanuel Leroy, EVP Product, Innovation & Industry Solutions of ESI Group and Alain Gauvin, CEO of ONET Technologies, signed today at WNE 2021, with the participation of Xavier Ursat, Group Senior Executive Vice President, New Nuclear Projects and Engineering, a joint declaration of intent structuring the MINS alliance, thus combining their skills on the outstanding Indian EPR market at the Jaitapur site.

A unique Indian project

In April 2021, EDF submitted a binding technical and commercial offer to NCPIL (Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited - India's state-owned nuclear power company) for the construction of six EPR (pressurized water reactor) reactors in India, at the Jaitapur site in the state of Maharashtra, whose capital is Bombay, the country's economic and commercial center. With an installed capacity of 9.6 GW, this plant would be the most powerful in the world. It would produce up to 75 TWh per year and cover the annual consumption of 70 million Indian households, while avoiding the emission of about 80 million tons of CO2 per year.

A unique French alliance based on complementary expertise

Based on more than forty years of experience in the nuclear sector, APAVE, ESI Group and ONET Technologies have combined their skills and know-how: in nuclear engineering for ONET Technologies, in compliance with regulatory and non-regulatory safety and security requirements for APAVE, and in virtual prototyping capabilities for ESI Group, in order to put them at the service of the project.

This combination enables the MINS alliance to offer a complete range of services ("one-stop shop" approach) to Indian manufacturers, constructors, and assemblers, from assistance in the design of systems and equipment to commissioning, including support in manufacturing methods and monitoring, numerical simulations to support component sizing, and quality and regulatory controls.

Xavier Ursat, Group Executive Director in charge of EDF's Engineering and New Nuclear Projects Division, said: "We are delighted that such experienced partners as Apave, ESI Group and Onet Technologies have joined forces to meet the many challenges of this extraordinary project in India. Their complementary nature and unique know-how, combined with their proximity to the field, will prove to be a major asset for our Group in the success of this major project, both in terms of its nature - the construction of the most powerful power plant in the world - and its duration - more than 15 years".
