Our skills

Engineering design. Programme management. Assembly, testing and commissioning. On-site/through-life support. Ansaldo Nucleare does it all.

With years of experience across a number of nuclear markets, Ansaldo Nucleare supplies and supports products ranging from small precision components to large machinery for high-integrity mechanical, electromechanical and software-controlled systems.

We’re capable of performing the vast majority of required activities in-house, thanks to our comprehensive internal resources. This means shorter lead times, and better design, quality and cost control too.

Engineering design of safety critical equipment in a nuclear environment

Ansaldo Nucleare has a history of manufacturing excellence in the fields of defence, decommissioning and nuclear new build. Some of our main services include:

  • Mechanical concept and detail design
  • Fluid and piping concept and detail design
  • Nuclear and radiation analysis
  • Electrical, Control and Instrumentation (EC&I)
  • Software design and development
  • Civil / structural analysis
  • Design substantiation
  • Design for manufacture / design for operations and maintenance
  • Category management services: a standard, modularised approach for cost and efficiency optimisation

Programme management

As well as our extensive manufacturing capabilities, our engineers are experienced in managing the budgets, timescales, and strategy of a project from start to finish, including:

  • Project management
  • Project controls
  • Programme procurement

Assembly, testing and commissioning

Our unique, dedicated facilities enable us to provide a comprehensive range of assembly, testing and commissioning services and associated documentation:

  • Factory Acceptance Tests (FATs)
  • Pre operation test and commissioning
  • Operating and Maintenance (O&M) manuals
  • Training documentation

On-site/through-life specialist support

We deliver cutting-edge, on-site/through-life assistance to nuclear clients from installation and commissioning, through operation & upgrade/refurbishment to eventual decommissioning of the plant. This includes:

  • Equipment installation
  • Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) maintenance and through-life support
  • Plant upgrades, refurbishment and repair
  • Operational support


Specialising in the precision machining and fabrication of carbon and stainless steel, our engineers are also skilled in the use of exotic metals and composite materials. Everything we manufacture is done according to the strictest UK, European and ASME standards, and our suppliers are all regularly audited by a dedicated Quality Assurance team.

Multiple skills for multiple disciplines
