Prague, 26th May 2015 – the city of Prague has hosted members of the leading European power generation companies for two days. The event preceding the 2015 European Nuclear Energy Forum (ENEF) was held by Areva and EDF, who invited 50 guests representing politics and power generation companies for a working lunch. Representatives of three partner companies from France, Czech Republic and Poland were addressing questions raised by the discussion panel audience. The Czech Republic was represented by ZAT a.s., a supplier for Areva and domestic and global manufacturer of power engineering and industrial control systems. 

“As Europe enjoys a strong position in nuclear power engineering nowadays, the issues of competitiveness and supplier chain perspective are very important for the future,” said Jean-Andre Barbosa, the director of Areva for the CEE region, the organizing company.

That is why Areva asked three supplier companies – French BOCCARD, Polish Elektrobudowa and Czech ZAT – to share their experience as nuclear power engineering suppliers in the panel discussion. The event was organized for the ENEF participants, mainly European institutions, delegates from participating countries and their industrial partners.

“ZAT is one of the main Areva partners in the region. It demonstrates broad experience in its field and we believe that it contributed to the debate by sharing its valuable view of expectations and challenges the nuclear engineering is facing,” commented Jean-Andre Barbosa on selecting the Czech company ZAT.
