Following the earthquake and tsunami that struck northern Japan, AREVA is mobilizing its forces to provide support to residents of the affected area and to the rescue workers and personnel working near the Fukushima nuclear plant.
AREVA has chartered a plane for Japan to deliver 3,000 activated charcoal protective masks, 10,000 overalls and 20,000 gloves. The aircraft carry 100 tons of boric acid, a neutron absorber, made available by EDF.
French rescue workers left for Japan with radioactivity detection equipment.
Equipment in Tokyo offices has already been made available to the Japanese security teams.
The Group also decided to donate one million euros to the Japanese Red Cross.
