Nuclear licensing

  • Extensive knowledge of nuclear facilities
  • Specialist in rules and legislation
  • Independent and internationally recognised
Do you need support on safety assessments or a nuclear licence applications? Or do you need to perform an Environmental Impact Assessment, Periodic Safety Review (PSR) or Long Term Operation (LTO) project? We solve your nuclear safety or licensing issues. We offer independent expert advice, tailored to your situation.

Safety assessments and licence applications

Do you want to design a new nuclear facility or modify an existing one? A thorough safety assessment is key for your licence!

NRG offers full support on nuclear and radiological aspects for safety cases. Design specifications, safety analysis, or setting up licensing documents such as Safety reports, radiological Environmental Impact Assessments, or licence applications: we can help you. Our goal is to establish an efficient and cost-effective project together with you. From the start until final approval from the regulator.

We have previously performed multiple successful projects for different nuclear operators, such as EPZ/Borssele NPP, ENGIE Doel & Tihange NPP, PALLAS, Urenco, COVRA, and Reactor Institute Delft (RID).

Periodic Safety Review (PSR)

Every 10 years a systematic list covering all safety aspects of a nuclear installation is evaluated according to regulations. These aspects include:

  • Installation & design
  • Maintenance & aging
  • Analysis method
  • Safety culture
  • Organisation & procedures

NRG can support you during this Periodic Safety Review. We apply our specific expertise, experience and experts to manage the entire process. This enables you to execute a thorough PSR and comply with the latest safety standards.

NRG can also support you in implementing and applying the lessons learned from the PSR.

Read our reference list below for more information about our past experiences.

Long Term Operation (LTO)

Long Term Operation (LTO) of nuclear facilities is a topic with international attention anticipating on the maturing fleet of reactors. Technical assessments, together with organisational aspects are to be assessed systematically to demonstrate safe long term operation to the regulator and society. NRG can advise you on (parts of) LTO projects, or even carry out LTO projects together with your organisation. We assist several nuclear facilities worldwide in their LTO projects.
