Siting & permitting

Assystem offers engineering and environmental services, especially site engineering in the energy, industries and transportation sectors.


In a post-Fukushima context, safety & environmental issues have never been so challenged in the Nuclear industry. Consequently, adaptation of plant and demonstration of compliance to ever-tighter levels of safety and environmental legislation is an ongoing obligation for the industry.

Clients need swift and secure access to geographical information on projects. Evaluation of environmental and social impacts of projects is essential in order to put in place the necessary measures to remedy and/or minimize those impacts. For instance, seismological and seismotectonic surveys are one of the most important studies especially for the design of nuclear power plants all around the world.

Beyond the nuclear sector, these issues are also crucial in other sectors: buildings and construction, infrastructures, renewables energies, transportation…
