Electricité De France SA (EDF) and Sulzer signed a significant contract. Sulzer will install new pumps to increase safety systems in French nuclear power plants. The contract consists of qualifying a pump set prototype, manufacturing, and installing 28 pumping units over the next 15 years.

The contract with Electricité De France SA (EDF) strengthens Sulzer s position as a major pumps supplier in the nuclear market. It further tightens the well-established partnership and collaboration with EDF.
