Jan 06, 2015 12:00 AM

French energy services firm Areva has struck a 75mn-euro (US$89mn) deal to supply additional mechanical and electrical equipment for Brazil's 1.35GW Angra 3 nuclear power project.

In a statement, the Paris-based firm said it will provide diesel engines, electrical appliances and fuel storage equipment for the plant in Rio de Janeiro state.

The announcement comes more than a year after Areva signed a 1.25bn-euro deal for the plant's construction.

Operated by Eletronuclear, a subsidiary of state-run group Eletrobras, Angra 3 is expected to begin operating by 2018.

It will be Brazil's third nuclear power plant alongside the adjacent Angra 1 and Angra 2 facilities.
