IDOM NS’ experience in the nuclear sector has its origins in the early nuclear generation projects in Spain in the late 70s and 80s, participating in the construction of the Ascó and Vandellós Nuclear Power Plants. Our participation in the ITER fusion research project marks a milestone in our International consolidation. Thanks to our own organization and philosophy, a flexible structure is adopted working either integrated into the team of the client or externally working from our offices supported by the internal infrastructure of technical areas, pursuing client’s satisfaction.
IDOM NS has been developing not only initial site studies and conceptual engineering, but also detail projects and construction of new facilities and major design changes under the EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction), EPCM (Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Management) or PMC (Project Management Consultancy) modalities. During all stages of the life cycle of the nuclear power plant, we offer our customers the knowledge of regulatory procedures and licensing, technological and operational requirements.
Our experience in the nuclear market is not just limited to commercial fission plants. IDOM NS has been active for more than a decade in the development of energy and fusion technology both in the ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) and the JET (Joint European Torus) as well as in other experimental reactors such as the JHR (Jules Horowitz Reactor).
The use and management of nuclear and radioactive materials must ensure the protection of workers, the population and the environment from harmful effects of ionizing radiation, in the present and in the future. IDOM NS develops projects where effective protection measures are integrated at all stages of the life cycle of nuclear fuel and radioactive waste.
The use of ionizing radiation occurs outside the energy sectors such as: industry, mining, agriculture, medicine, research facilities, military facilities, airport security (X-rays), etc. IDOM NS has carried out projects related to these radioactive facilities involving the consideration of special safety requirements.
