A message from the
In 2017, TechnicAtome turned a new page of its history by becoming a top-ranking public company, getting back its name and its historical benchmark. TechnicAtome, a key player in the civilian and military nuclear sectors, has taken on a new impetus, serving tomorrow’s deterrence and nuclear power needs.
For the company’s employees, 2018 was a year that saw plenty of major events, with the commissioning by our staff of the on-shore test reactor (RES), and the fully successful renovation and reloading of the nuclear steam supply systems for the aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle.
In 2018, under its new governance, TechnicAtome also set itself a strategic roadmap, “Cap TA”, in keeping with the density of its current workload and its prospects. The company’s strong financial results and its dynamic recruitments are indicators of its good health and the durability of its unusual skills.
On the basis of these key points, rooted in the history of TechnicAtome, and driven by this new impetus, we are setting the course for the future with passion and complete confidence, to serve our customers and the French Navy.
