About us

Motivation

Solving problems

Making measurements to record stresses in nuclear power plant components has been part of our company's history from the very beginning, and is still important today. Finding and solving the causes of unexpectedly occurring events and the associated problems is what drives us. We use the very latest measuring technology for these analyses. We want to understand the interrelations thoroughly, so that our solution functions reliably.

Developing methods

From solving problems occurring in plant operation, it became clear that this assembled body of knowledge can be used to systematically reduce the number of problems for plant operators in the future. So we developed methods for integrity and ageing management in nuclear power plants, and for the reliable function of sealed connections of flanges and fittings. As well as measuring technology, nowadays we also use a wide range of calculation procedures and individual databases.

Setting standards

Thanks to our active work within standardisation bodies and at international conferences, we contribute to nuclear power plants and processing plants becoming ever more safe and reliable, and to decreasing emissions ever further.

The team

From a two-man operation, we have grown continuously and now employ 28 people. Working in our friendly team are mainly engineers as well as a few physicists, technicians and commercial staff.
