Nuclear Research

The experience acquired by TechnicAtome in the field of research reactors is today made available to international projects, including the Jules Horowitz Reactor project under construction on the Cadarache site.

TechnicAtome has the capacity to mobilise expertise in all areas of nuclear engineering and offers a wide range of services:

  • Advice and assistance for project owners and project managers.
  • New construction engineering
  • Renovation and optimisation of the Installed Base (renovation of I&C, fuel studies, new applications, etc.)
  • Safety reassessment
