Nuclear power requires experienced professionals who bring thorough, innovative solutions for your unique nuclear requirements. Solutions that address day-to-day challenges and achieve safety, cost and production goals. To achieve these outcomes you must have experience on your team. That's what we bring to you.

As nuclear standards have evolved, expectations for continuous improvement, event reduction and excellence in safe and reliable plant operations have expanded. Our team is made up of nuclear professionals — several hundred have direct nuclear power plant experience; we understand these standards and expectations. We are directly involved in information exchanges, industry conferences and industry code committees.

The in-plant experience of our professionals means we bring industry best practices to guide our recommendations to you. We are an extension of you, resolving difficult tasks, maintaining schedules, and providing reliable, cost-effective and innovative results.

We're ready to engineer solutions for you.

Experienced Project Delivery Team

Complex nuclear projects require a team of experienced professionals with in-plant experience on large nuclear projects as well as other large engineering, procurement and construction efforts — within the nuclear industry as well as mega-projects in nuclear and other industries. Our engineers, project managers, project controls, construction, and consulting professionals deliver solutions that fit your project.

Our team has domestic and international experience in providing these services for large nuclear plant completions and refurbishments, as well as experience in investigating and providing solutions for challenging projects. We work with your team under the contracting model you require, whether it be design-build/engineer-procure-construct (EPC), design-bid-build, owner’s engineering, program management, or other method.

International Perspective

International nuclear projects require the ability to understand and meet unique international needs and expectations. Our nuclear professionals have experience at two of the largest nuclear projects under way in North America: the Ontario Power Generation Darlington Nuclear Plant and Bruce Power Nuclear Refurbishments.
Our team also has international consulting experience on South Korean nuclear power plants. When the South Korean units experienced unexpected power reductions and plant shutdowns, our professionals provided analysis, consulting and knowledge to address these concerns.
