Girodin-Sauer will supply most of the compressors for EDF – DUS
Girodin-Sauer is going to supply the start-up compressors for the Diesel-alternator power plants in the DUS programme for 900 MW power stations.
The French acronym DUS stands for "Diesel d’ultime secours" (ultimate backup Diesel). This is a huge safety enhancement programme in which an additional backup power plant will be attached to every nuclear power plant in France.
Clemessy has engaged the Sauer supply network to service a contract for 38 power plants, consolidating the position of Girodin-Sauer in the highly demanding French nuclear power market.
