Our experts support companies in the area of nuclear engineering and the manufacturers and service providers supplying the nuclear engineering market. We assess management systems and applicable processes and provide support to licensing and regulatory authorities. Our services include:
Conformity analyses review basic data and design data relevant to the fulfillment of requirements in applicable nuclear and conventional engineering regulations and specifications. Our support can be provided in the context of a formal preliminary review or as consulting services rendered as part of the layout process. The conformity analysis is carried out for components and systems primarily in the following fields:
Having performed safety analyses for many major international nuclear power projects in Germany and abroad our experts have several years of extensive process engineering knowledge and experience. Taking plant-specific requirements and conditions into account, they focus on the following elements when evaluating the safety of a nuclear power plant:
Safe operation of a nuclear power plant depends on the quality of the components and systems used in the facility. To ensure quality, our inspectors are continuously deployed to suppliers of these components and systems, but our activities are not limited to inspection. We also support you in the following areas:
We offer comprehensive radiation protection services that support compliance with the requirements of Atomic Energy Regulations (Atomgesetz (AtG)), Radiation Protection Regulations (Strahlenschutzverordnung (StrlSchV)), X-ray Regulations (Röntgenverordnung (RöV)), and subordinate regulations. These services focus on the following aspects:
For the safe operation of a nuclear power plant, systems and components must be audited periodically and whenever modifications are made. Inspection can either be carried out by either doing functional testing or non-destructive testing. TÜV Rheinland evaluates pending plant modifications in relation to their effects on the safety of the overall nuclear power plant and how these changes will affect compliance with regulations of existing licenses. Our evaluations include:
Our experts are specialists in the application of advanced non- destructive testing methods. In addition to our capabilities in conventional NDT and inspection services (VT, PT, MT, ET, RT, UT, LT), we can help you to master the special challenges of the nuclear industry with diverse solutions in advanced NDT methods encompassing:
Our NDT experts support nuclear energy projects through training, consulting and technical justification.
Our nuclear energy experts have acquired comprehensive knowledge over more than 20 years of expert evaluation in shutting down and decommissioning nuclear power plants of various designs and with other types of nuclear facilities. Our range of services includes:
