French term or phrase: ligne de production des centrifugeuses
This is from a press release about construction works and commissioning of a new nuclear location, which is nearing completion. In another section of the article, they talk about centrifuges being installed and brought on line in another unit.

C’est aussi un chantier d’envergure qui progresse activement sur l’unité nord. Le chantier civil est pratiquement terminé. Dans le même temps, la ligne de production des centrifugeuses est en cours de qualification, conformément au planning. L’unité nord devrait démarrer fin 2012.

I'm not sure what they mean by "ligne de production."
Thanks.

English translation:centrifuge production lines
Explanation:
I should have thought without any further context, i.e. the part of the plant where they are manufacturing the actual centrifuges

sorry, there shouldn't be an "s" on line - don't know where that came from!

agree  David Goward: I think it's more likely to be the production line incorporating the centrifuges but that will not alter the translation.

agree  chris collister: I'm with David: centrifuges are manufactured by highly specialist companies, then installed (often in large numbers) in fuel enrichment plants
