PARIS (Reuters) - French nuclear group Areva (AREVA.PA: Quote) won several long-term contracts last year from four U.S. utilities for uranium enrichment services worth more than $300 million, the group said on Tuesday.

"These contracts are recognition of AREVA’s expertise in providing enrichment services and demonstrate the company’s commitment to ensuring security of supply for its customers," Olivier Wantz, a senior vice president for Areva said in a statement.
