Output of the main alternator rotor on the Tricastin nuclear site

3 May 2022

Jeumont Electric delivered the main alternator rotor outlet for Unit 3 of the Tricastin nuclear power plant in France.

Together, the plant’s four 900 MW reactors produce around 25 TWh per year, 6% of France’s total electricity production.
For Jeumont Electric, the project provided an opportunity to utilize a wide range of know-how, including mechanical dismantling, electrical assessments of the stator winding and magnetic circuit, and a mechanical assessment of the dismantled parts.
