New Areva has become Orano. Refocused on nuclear materials development and waste management, Orano’s activities encompass mining, conversion-enrichment, used fuel recycling, nuclear logistics, dismantling and engineering. The group has 16 000 employees, with a revenue of €4-billion and an order backlog that represents the equivalent of nearly eight years of revenue. Its mining and conversion-enrichment activities place it in the top three worldwide. The company is a leader in nuclear recycling and logistics, and is developing its business in the medical field. The name has its etymological roots in the word “uranium”, from which nuclear fuel is produced. The company’s CEO, Philippe Knoche, says that the company has a new organisational structure, a new business plan, a new strategic action plan and a new social contract.
