Our wide-ranging engineering capability and the flexible, integrated structure of our business fosters a culture of innovation that draws on the knowledge and experience of our whole team to offer our clients a practical and informed approach to projects.

Collaboration is at the core of our business

Our UK teams are then able to apply the unique experience and Lessons Learned by Orano at these facilities, to some of the UK’s most complex nuclear challenges, while not losing sight of the specific requirements of UK sites and clients.
