Full scope safety service provider during the complete life cycle
Safety is of paramount importance for nuclear facilities. But safety is not an end in itself. Instead it is the most essential feature in the use of nuclear energy in order to protect the general public, as well as operating staff, and the environment from the effects of high energy radiation.
At TÜV SÜD we have decades of experience in the nuclear sector, working on behalf of regulatory authorities to conduct the full-scope of safety assessment for nuclear facilities. Ensuring that national and international safety and environmental standards are adhered to. We support nuclear facilities operators to supplement safety assessments. Providing technical expertise on ways in which operational efficiency and increase availability can be improved.
At TÜV SÜD, we take an integrated approach along the entire plant lifecycle from design and construction, through to operation and decommissioning. During the design and planning stage, we review design documentation and assess technical solutions for national and international standard compliance. Avoiding safety deficiencies and costly rework at a later stage. During construction we verify that systems and components are perfectly aligned and that the plant will be built according to license agreement.
During operations, we provide technical assessment, guidance and support on operational procedures and documentation, safety reviews, technical modifications as well as in-service inspection and maintenance to ensure compliance with safety standards and improve availability.
When it comes to the end of the plant lifespan, we provide expertise for the decommissioning concept and the dismantling activities. Our experts in radiation protection will provide support on staff radiation protection and waste management handling guidance .
