Nuclear activities of APCO Technologies
APCO Technologies has gained throughout the years a strong and recognised experience in the design, the manufacturing and the tests of highly secured handling and lifting means for nuclear applications. With the experience of its technical office and powerful numeric analytical computer means, APCO Technologies has become, among other competences, a specialist in seismic analysis of power plants components.
With a very high number of projects performed to date, APCO Technologies has become an expert in the development, the provision and the operation of highly sensitive and delicate equipment, providing a very high level of satisfaction to its customers.
APCO Technologies has been involved in most of the major nuclear projects in France as designer, manufacturer and/or on-site integrator of high safety automated handlings systems.
Our offices in Chalon-sur-Saone and Pierrelatte (F) are mainly dedicated to the on-site erection and integration while the office of APCO Technologies in Aigle (CH) is in charge of all engineering, assembly and testing of our handling and lifting devices. This allows APCO Technologies to perform the on-site installation and the commissioning of the equipment we develop and then to perform the maintenance and technical assistance related thereto.
