We encourage you to benefit from our many years of experience in the areas of safety engineering, licensing, development of design concepts and technical documentation.

Thanks to our long-standing experience, we are aware of the needs of those who operate nuclear power plants, nuclear fuel cycle plants and other nuclear facilities. We provide you with the full spectrum of engineering and consulting services such as:

  • Project management
  • Feasibility studies
  • Concept development and evaluation
  • Process and mechanical engineering design of plants
  • Safety assessments and reliability tests for your plants
  • Support during the licensing processes in accordance with Radiological Protection Ordinance StrlSchV and Atomic Energy Act AtG
  • Automation technology and instrumentation
  • Radiation protection, health and safety and plant fire protection

 

Safety Technology

Nuclear safety basically results from the guaranteeing of and compliance with safety objectives:

  • Control of reactivity,
  • Removal of the decay heat,
  • Enclosure of radioactive substances and
  • Limiting radiation exposure.

The last two protection objectives in particular are of great importance for the decommissioning and dismantling of nuclear facilities with or without reactor. In line with the ALARA principle, we will answer all your questions on nuclear safety using hazard analyses, incident and accident analyses, the drafting of licensing documents according to the Radiological Protection Ordinance such as safety reports, compiling documents on fire protection and planning radiation protection facilities.

Safety and licensing

  • Drafting of licensing documents in accordance with national and international regulations: Preliminary Safety Analysis Report (PSAR)
  • Interim Safety Analysis Report (ISAR)
  • Final Safety Analysis Report (FSAR)
  • Environmental Impact Analysis Report (EIA)

Implementing all analyses that are necessary for the safety analysis report

  • Hazard analysis
  • Accident analyses
  • Failure Mode and Effect Analyses (FMEA)
  • Contributions to the (Periodic) Security Review (PSR)
  • Contributions to the Probabilistic Safety Analyses (PSA)

Radiation protection

I.Care.fire: Web-based mobile support in creating a fire protection concept

Problem

Creation / modification of the fire protection concept is necessary:

  • in case of structural changes
  • in case of displacement of fire loads
  • as part of new construction, operation, decommissioning and dismantling
  • in set time intervals

I.CARE.fire provides you with:

  • Time and cost saving during plant inspections and data collection of the inventory (fire load)
  • User-friendly handling
  • High level of safety due to a simplified procedure for the inspection
  • Digitalised and documented actual state via photographs
  • Simplified target/actual comparison
  • Increased safety standard due to wide-ranging documentation options
  • Sustainability by means of traceability - changes are documented
  • Immediate availability in the nuclear power station (intranet)
