Nuclear-Power Generation

Level 1 Nuclear

Frazer-Nash has been providing nuclear engineering solutions to support the lifetime management of existing nuclear power generation facilities for over three decades. Our experts develop through life management strategies to enable nuclear plant life extension and plant performance optimisation. They provide the underlying engineering and nuclear safety justifications needed to deliver the strategy effectively.

Power generation through life support

Our SQEP engineers work closely with our clients to understand the project engineering and safety needs and ensure we provide a value added solution. Our work spans the whole lifecycle and includes Periodic Safety Reviews, outage support, response to emergent nuclear plant faults, as well as power plant life extension and performance optimisation.
