The modern world is facing a threefold challenge: find a competitively priced response to rising demand for electricity, tackle climate change and confront the depletion of easily accessible natural resources. To address these issues, EDF has chosen to pursue a strategy of long-term partnerships.
There are already a number of projects underway in which France and Russia are cooperating in an active collaborative effort, primarily in the following areas: operating safety at nuclear power plants, technical support programs, station inspections, staff training, improving safety measures during the development stage of nuclear plants and the introduction of research and development.
Furthermore, EDF is working in tandem with Gazprom to help strengthen the culture of safety at operating stations in Ukraine. In connection with this, EDF made an important contribution to the safety system of the sarcophagus encasing Chernobyl.
