Areva picks Mirion-Charterhouse for sale of instrumentation business: Reuters

French nuclear group Areva said on Thursday it had chosen an offer from U.S Mirion and private equity firm Charterhouse to buy Canberra, its nuclear instrumentation and measurement business.

Areva said the aim was to complete the sale process by the end of 2016, without providing further details.

The sale of Canberra is part of an overhaul loss-making Areva, with utility EDF poised to buy its nuclear reactor business.
