Our skills per discipline

Ansaldo Nucleare provides a single-entry point to clients. Our multidisciplinary team can design, procure, construct, install and commission complex projects, as well as support those projects through their lifecycle.

With many years of experience working on international EPC contracts, Ansaldo Nucleare has developed an extensive set of capabilities. From EC&I to quality control, plant design and much more, our team offers an extensive range of competencies.

This allows Ansaldo Nucleare to create unique solutions, combining well-proven modules and innovative solutions in order to meet the specific objectives and requirements of each project.

Skilled in both design and engineering

Working on a nuclear plant requires both highly-specialised design skills (e.g. safety, radiation transport, special components, thermo-hydraulic architecture, piping analysis and overall risk management) and plant engineering skills (e.g. fluid system design, CAD modelling, civil works, power supply and electrical transmission, instrumentation and control systems). Ansaldo Nucleare has vast experience across all these fields.

Multiple skills, one team

Our capabilities don’t operate in isolation. All of our projects are developed in an integrated way, building upon one another to maximise safety, plant life and efficient lifetime support. Compliance with the relevant requirements is verified through periodic reviews.
