Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Update on this: Areva still has a boiling-water reactor in its offering, though they're not marketing it as strongly as the EPR. It is a remain of the Siemens business, from before the merger with Framatome.

Since it's a western, german, recent design, I cannot imagine that those german engineers would dare offering a reactor with an instable void coefficient. (Although I have not found any statement on this on the Areva website).
