Nuclear safety and security when designing and licensing new nuclear facilities, including nuclear power plants | TÜV Rheinland

Secure your nuclear facility for frictionless new build.

In some parts of the world, such as South Asia, nuclear energy is currently in a growth period with the aim of entering the nuclear business or expanding their nuclear power plant network.

Building a new nuclear facility such as a nuclear power plant involves identifying and understanding the different risks inherent in a project of this scale and complexity. Some of these risks are similar to those of any other large investment project in the energy sector, while others are clearly specific to nuclear energy. Combined with the fact that the nuclear sector is subject to very strict and localized safety regulations there is a strong need for partners who can support in navigating this complex and high risk environment. We place emphasis on being a neutral, independent partner. As well as the relationship between a country's existing nuclear program if any and the new project, the following factors are crucial to ensuring a safe plant build and operation:

  • Appointment and training of skilled workers
  • Management of construction and commissioning and related supply chains
  • Safety, security, environment risk, and quality management
  • Control of project risks such as schedule and budget, taking into account stakeholders' varying interests

In the era of digitalization and the accompanying technological transformation, creating a secure IT infrastructure is of central importance when planning, designing and licensing a new nuclear facility.
