French nuclear delegation to attend 7th edition of India Nuclear Energy Exhibition

Thomas ILHE - 15-sept.-2015 08:48:52
  The French pavilion at the India Nuclear Energy exhibition will host seventeen companies from the nuclear sector and two professional federations under the French pavilion organized by Business France at the INE 2015 exhibition. Besides attending the exhibition, they will meet key players like Larsen & Toubro, Areva and NPCIL.   The French nuclear sector is a cutting-edge industry with three major operators: Areva, EDF and Alstom. During the Indian Prime Ministers official visit to France in April 2015, considerable progress has been made on negotiations on the Jaitapur project. AREVA signed a Pre-engineering Agreement (PEA) with the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) and a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with & Larsen & Toubro, to prepare for the EPR reactor licensibility in India and increase localization, within the frame of the “Make in India” policy. In addition to these major industrial operators, the French nuclear industry boasts a network of different types of suppliers offering special products and services. The French nuclear industry’s turnover is € 46 billion of which € 5.6 billion is the contribution from exports. It employs 220,000 people and France is the leader in Europe and has second position worldwide in terms of nuclear power generation (with 58 standardized reactors). The Indian government is increasingly introducing initiatives to accelerate the development of civil nuclear power, making the sector a key priority to meet the energy needs of the country with limited impact on the environment. Indias current annual output of nuclear generated power is 5.78 GW, which it aims to increase to 14.6 GW in 2020 and 63 GW in 2032. The country is therefore set to become the second biggest market for new reactors between 2015 and 2032. India also offers opportunities in terms of maintaining and extending the service life of its current capacity, most of which is Pressurized Heavy Water Reactor (PHWR). There are ample opportunities for French companies interested to work in the Indian nuclear market by developing their contacts and preparing their offer for the upcoming tenders. Since 2010, the French pavilion has the biggest and most visible international presence at the India Nuclear Energy exhibition organized by UBM. The French pavilion is set up in partnership with two federations: AIFEN (stand G45 - Association des Industriels Français Exportateurs du Nucléaire) representing over 300 companies and major French associations (GIIN, Nucleopolis, PFCE, PFME, PNB). These companies (from VSEs/SMEs to large groups) represent all links in the nuclear industry chain from fuel production to dismantling, engineering, technology, components, generation and research. They are involved in power generation, creating research reactors, science, medical applications and water propulsion. G.I.I.N. (stand G45 - Groupe Intersyndical de l ’ Industrie Nucléaire) is an association of professional federations and organizations involved in the nuclear industry. As a coordinator of professional organizations, G.I.I.N. is a representative body defending interests against operators and authorities, while also providing access to information on the industry. G.I.I.N. also enables people to attend collective actions (exhibitions, conferences, etc.) and facilitates access to markets in France and abroad.

  During the visit of Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India, in France, AREVA signed two agreements with its Indian partners for the preparation of the Jaitapur EPR project.  In the presence of Prime Minister Modi and French President François Hollande, AREVA signed a Pre-engineering Agreement (PEA) contract with the Indian operator Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) for the preparation of EPR licensibility in India for the Jaitapur project. These studies will also enable both companies to finalize the technical configuration of the project. AREVA and Larsen & Toubro (L&T), India’s largest engineering and construction conglomerate, also signed a memorandum of understanding to explore avenues of collaboration for the future Jaitapur project. In February 2009, AREVA and NPCIL signed a Memorandum of Understanding for a partnership in nuclear power generation to build up to six EPR reactors at the Jaitapur site. A General Framework Agreement for the construction of the first two EPR reactors was signed in December 2010.   Source:

The Lille region of northern France has set an exceptional precedence of transition

Ridhima Verma - 17-mars-2015 11:04:56
  A transformation   The Lille Region of northern France has set an exceptional precedence of transition   F rance, once at the centre stage of the Industrial Revolution, has been witnessing another revolution of a kind across its industrial ecosystem. For over two decades, some of the regions of this European nation have been undergoing a metamorphosis. Leading from the front is its Lille Region. Once known for its textile mills and coal mines, this northern region of France has been under transformation, with the traditional businesses gradually giving way to the services sector, led by technology clusters and innovation centres. Most importantly, the transition has been smooth and seamless, even as there have been concerted efforts to preserve the vital component of heritage.   This strategically located region, backed by its well-developed infrastructure and human resource pool, has been attracting businesses from across the world. The region’s specific clusters and innovation hubs, spanning over areas like information and communication technologies ( ict ), multi-media, digital arts, technical textiles, retail & logistics, healthcare, plastics and green business are not only attracting matured enterprises, but also offering customised incubation and promotional facilities for aspiring entrepreneurs and businesses.   Global names like ibm , Microsoft, Capgemini, Amazon, Coca-Cola, dhl , Fedex, Bayer Healthcare, gsk Vaccines, Nestlé, Toyota, Thyssen Krupp, etc, have made their presence felt in this region. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, the region, faced with a difficult period after the decline of the coal, mining and textile industries, is all set to script a remarkable turnaround story. Indian it major Tata Consultancy Services, which has been in France for over a decade now, also put up its office in February 2013 in Euratechnologies, a high-tech cluster and incubator, dedicated to the ict sector. Closer to the city of Lille, Euratechnologies has emerged as an ict centre for excellence, providing a central location for businesses, start-ups, laboratories and educational institutions through a range of innovative services.   The centre has come up in a textile manufacturing mill, without upsetting the basic building structure. it has been renovated and currently hosts over 150 ict -related companies, including 70 start-ups and five major ones including tcs, ibm and Microsoft. In just five years of its operation, the cluster, having promoted on the ppp model, has created 3,000 new jobs. The cluster is looking to attract 500 technology companies with 6,000 employees by 2018. “In a short span of time, our project has generated a phenomenal response,” says Raouti Chehih, ceo, Euratechnologies. “We have managed to create one of the biggest ecosystems in digital technologies. In fact, currently, we boast the world’s largest incubator.” Euratechnologies, which clocked a turnover of over € 200 million recently, is aiming to double the same in the next three years.   “Being present at Euratechnologies enables us to enjoy the right kind of ecosystem and manpower availability for catering to the needs of our customers,” says Nicolas Sohier, director, France sales, tcs . “Backed by a series of advantages, we have been effectively as well as competitively able to service our customers in the retail sector. Moreover, we also reap the benefits of networking with companies present in the cluster.” tcs, which has got 35 employees now, intends to expand itself into a larger office over the years. The company has been operating in France since 1992 and has over 50  clients across various industries. It  has significantly strengthened its  position through local hiring and investments in recent years.    In recognition of these initiatives, it was also conferred the special award for investment and innovation by the Greater Paris Investment Agency in 2012. In June last year, the company acquired Alti sa , an it services company in France, for a value of € 75 million in an all-cash transaction. The French company, a leading technology services firm, has strong expertise in it services, including enterprise solutions, assurance and crm solutions. This acquisition has further strengthened tcs ’ ability and footprint to service its customers in France and other regions in Europe. “This acquisition underlines our long-term, strategic commitment to France, which is the third-largest it services market in Europe. I am confident that this acquisition will help us accelerate our growth and presence in France,” says N. Chandrasekaran, ceo & managing director, tcs .     Turn around   Another Indian company that has made its presence felt in northern France is Titagarh Wagons Ltd ( twl ), which took over the manufacturing facility of Arbel Fauvet Rail ( afr ) in July 2010. The century-old French company, which specialised in designing and making specialised tank cars, containers, bogies and wagons, had filed for bankruptcy and went into liquidation in 2010. Though the company had been facing tough times following the increasing cost of production as also growing competition, the eurozone crisis in 2007 finally derailed its train journey.    The French subsidiary has successfully been turned around in the last couple of years even as its turnover has witnessed a phenomenal jump to around € 40 million in 2014 from just € 2 million (annualised) in 2010. The unit, with the capacity to produce 2,000 wagons/annum, is located over an area of 42 acres at Douai in northern France, considered a hub for Europe’s railway industry. In fact, it is a part of Lille’s I-Trans rail cluster which also hosts players like Alstom, Bombardier and Siemens.   “For us, afr stood out because it was an excellent facility with good equipment and skilled labour,” says Umesh Choudhary, managing director, twl . “Its location in the north of France was also desirable as the region was famous for its rail technology, especially design capabilities. And the region offers true potential in terms of recruitment thanks to excellent training programmes in sustainable transportation.”   “Our experience of working with France has been fruitful,” adds Sunil Kanojia, group ceo, Sintex Industries Ltd. “We also have a plant in the northern part. The working team, the leadership and the administration, all have been supportive and committed.” Sintex acquired a French company, Nief Plastics, in 2007 for € 31 million. The company has five plants in France and a topline of € 220 million. It has been supplying composites to Thryssenkrupp, Areva, Alstom and Renault, among others.   “Over the years, our cluster approach has worked quite well in transforming this northern region into a major investment destination – not only in France but in the whole of Europe,” says Omar Layachi, project manager, Nord France Invest. “With an ecosystem conducive to doing business, more than 1,500 foreign-owned companies are already doing business here.” Nord France Invest, the investment promotion agency for Lille, is responsible for promoting this region, and providing a suitable atmosphere for industries has been instrumental in putting the region on the investment map of France. The region has emerged as the third largest location in terms of fdi with a presence of 1,300 businesses and employing 100,000  people across diverse industries.   While the ict cluster Euratechnologies has emerged as the largest incubator, other clusters in related sectors are not far behind. In fact, the region is a hotspot for multimedia talent, cultivating expertise in video games, animation and mobile apps. It is also France’s number one cluster for digital arts training. Lille hosts global names like Ankama, Adictiz, Bigben Interactive and Hydravision. With world-class institutes/schools (Rubika group, formerly Supinfogroup), the region also develops talent.   All said and done, Lille is using its economic past to carve out a place in the future. A case in point is the former coal pit at Arenberg near Valenciennes. Opened by Compagnie des Mines d’Anzin in 1899, the pit quickly became the company’s most productive site, with nearly 32 million tonnes of coal extracted over the years. Prosperity ensued, followed by decline, crisis and closure in 1989.    But the site then resurfaced as a popular film set for directors, who incorporated its striking interiors and exteriors into their shoots, paving the way for a new future in image and sound. Arenberg is undergoing a radical shift from abandoned coal pit to center of excellence for research in cinema and digital technology with an objective to serve the film and tv industry of tomorrow by designing, developing and deploying techniques and tools.
