The client, a private company in the health sector, wanted to create the first radiotherapy centre in New Caledonia in a major health centre. It was a public-private partnership.
Radiotherapy uses ionising radiation to destroy cancer cells. This treatment does not make the patient radioactive, so there are no precautions to be taken in relation to the patient's surroundings after the session. However, any radiotherapy machine, for use without risk of exposure to staff and the public, must be installed in a "bunker" designed to protect the outside from the emitted radiation.
The centre has to be equipped with a centring scanner and two linear particle accelerators.
In this context, the client mandated Assystem for a complete turnkey project management for the creation of a radiotherapy centre.
