French utility company EDF and Brazilian state power company Eletrobras signed a memorandum of understanding to promote cooperation in nuclear power in Brazil, according to Eletrobras on Wednesday.

In line with the three-year-long agreement, both companies and Eletrobras Eletronuclear, a subsidiary of Eletrobras, will study opportunities to collaborate for the conclusion of the Angra 3 nuclear plant and the development of new nuclear power plants in Brazil.

 

EDF will also be able to help maintenance and training in the Angra 1 and Angra 2 plants.

 

The activities to be carried out under the agreement will be made through specific contracts, which will be defined later.

 

Brazil has two nuclear reactors generating about 3 percent of its electricity, with total installed 1,884 megawatts of capacity, according to the World Nuclear Association (WNA).

 

The country's first commercial nuclear power reactor began operating in 1982.
