Assystem and PreussenElektra agree to collaborate on delivering nuclear services

16 May 2017

On May 15th, the French company Assystem and the German company PreussenElektra GmbH signed a memorandum of understanding to collaborate in the area of nuclear engineering and consulting.

This nuclear alliance will benefit the global civil nuclear market by combining the operating and maintenance capabilities of PreussenElektra, one of world’s top performers in nuclear generation, and the nuclear engineering and project expertise of Assystem, one the five leading independent nuclear engineering companies in the world. This partnership will first focus on serving the development of the nuclear program in the UAE. It will then potentially be open to further international cooperation.

Their capabilities as owners and utilities will complement each other to produce high-value and competitive engineering services to help nuclear newcomers, operators and investors in the ongoing effort to make nuclear power safer, while addressing the need to ensure outstanding economic performance.

Emphasis will be placed on servicing the entire nuclear lifecycle from plant development and construction, through operational readiness, operation and maintenance to nuclear waste management and decommissioning & dismantling of nuclear power plants.

Speaking on the occasion of signature of the collaboration agreement, Mr Stéphane Aubarbier, CEO of Assystem Energy & Infrastructure Chairman stated: “We are convinced that the success of nuclear programs requires the alliance of the best skills available both from nuclear operators and engineering companies. Thanks to partnerships like the one we have with PreussenElektra, one of the most experienced operator worldwide, Assystem aims at becoming the 1st independent nuclear engineering company in the world.

Dr. Guido Knott, CEO of PreussenElektra added: "In Assystem we have found an extremely experienced and competent partner with a huge amount of international experience and we are delighted to have them by our side. Both partners will be able to bring their complementary strengths to this relationship. This unique combination of "owner and utility engineering" will generate a unique added value for our customers, enabling them to open up new markets."
