LONDON (Reuters) - French nuclear reactor maker Areva and engineering consultancy Atkins have set up a joint venture to bid for decommissioning contracts in Britain's nuclear sector, the companies said on Tuesday.

AREVA-ATKINS Partnership UK will be based in Warrington, northwest England, and seek to secure subcontractor work with companies appointed to manage sites owned by Britain's Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA).

"This will enable us to put our proven technology to use in meeting the challenges of UK decommissioning and strengthen Areva's footprint in the country," said Dominique Mockly, Areva executive senior vice president.
