Context and challenges
The client is a major player in the nuclear sector, specialised in research. It has introduced a programme for the recovery and conditioning of waste from one of its industrial sites. One of the programme projects involves the design, construction and outfitting of facilities for the recovery of “bulk” intermediate-level waste present in wells and pits. This waste has to be characterised, conditioned and shipped to the disposal outlets.
The client called on Assystem, in cooperation with an other engineering firm, to perform the design work, from work monitoring through to commissioning, as part of a comprehensive Project Supervisor mission.
In a context of digitalisation and deployment of a systems engineering approach, Assystem suggested to implement a PLM solution for this project.
Assystem handled the project management, nuclear safety design work, mechanical systems design, processes and utilities (ventilation, electricity, fluids, low voltage supplies).
In order to successfully manage the technical and organisational complexity of the project, Assystem introduced a number of digital tools:
process buildings and 6 annex buildings
years of construction
m3 / 4,000 m2
hours of design work
