Our history

2019 Ensuring Nuclear Performance

NRG combines Nuclear Consultancy and Nuclear Research in one: NRG Ensuring Nuclear Performance. This step supports the importance of nuclear knowledge and research to better people and environment.

1998 NRG

All nuclear activities of ECN and KEMA are put in a daughter firm named NRG (Nuclear Research and Consultancy Group), resulting in an operational boundary between ECN sustainable energy and NRG.

1976 ECN

RCN becomes ECN. Research into sustainable energy solutions is started.

1961 HFR and 1960 LFR

Petten starts operating the first Dutch nuclear reactor: the Low Flux Reactor (LFR). The LFR is successfully decommissioned years later by NRG, in 2010. In 1961, the High Flux Reactor in Petten is operational.

1927 KEMA and 1955 RCN

KEMA was founded in Arnhem in 1927. KEMA evolves from an inspection service for electrical equipment to an internationally operating consultancy firm in the field of energy. RCN (Dutch Reactor Centre) is established in 1955 and focuses on the peaceful application of nuclear energy.
