2018 WNE: Assystem, a major partner of the nuclear industry across the world

25 June 2018

The third World Nuclear Exhibition (WNE) will take place in Paris between 26 and 28 June 2018. At this exhibition, Assystem – a major international player in engineering – will present its expertise, know-how and solutions. During the event, Assystem will officially disclose several strategic international business developments, present its digital and innovation expertise and share its vision of the vital importance of hiring and training nuclear specialists.

For more than 50 years, Assystem has drawn on its independent technical expertise to meet the numerous challenges facing the nuclear industry and it now ranks as the world's third-largest independent nuclear engineering group. Through our 2,500 highly committed nuclear experts we are currently taking part in projects in over 13 countries, covering the entire life cycle of facilities.

We help our clients carry out their nuclear projects and meet the industry's current main challenges, such as optimising lead times and costs, going digital, innovating, complying with strict safety standards, decommissioning and managing waste. In parallel, our guaranteed independence means that we can partner all technology suppliers in both their domestic and export markets and help new-entrant countries with developing their nuclear programmes. All of these topics will be addressed during the three days of the WNE.

"As the world's third-leading independent engineering group, our mission is to make nuclear energy increasingly safer, efficient and cost effective, drawing on our long-standing experience in France and abroad", sums up Stéphane Aubarbier, Assystem's Chief Operating Officer
