Chairman and CEO of CVMR® Corporation (CVMR®) of Canada, Kamran M. Khozan, and Tara Neider, President and CEO of AREVA Federal Services LLC (AFS), a U.S. subsidiary of AREVA, announce an alliance for the deployment of metal powder production, refining and manufacturing plants in the United States. The plants will position CVMR® as the industry leader for powdered metal production based on their proprietary systems and technology. The projects will include research and production facilities and balance of plant infrastructure. AFS will provide engineering, procurement and construction management services under the direction of CVMR®. CVMR® will develop the plants as part of a global initiative for fully integrated metal extraction, refining and manufacturing operations. CVMR® has completed the process conceptual design and budgeting, the initial activity in this USA program. AFS will start the industrial production plant conceptual design and cost estimate in 2014 with early completion in first quarter 2015.
AFS brings a comprehensive set of services and experience in advanced technology projects involving design, construction, licensing and commissioning. These skills and capabilities are especially relevant in scaling technology solutions to new production sites, extending smaller operations into larger facilities, and maintaining an emphasis on project management, quality assurance, and environmental, health and safety.
