Power generation

We provide solutions to support the lifetime management of existing nuclear power generation facilities.

Frazer-Nash has been providing nuclear engineering solutions to support the lifetime management of existing nuclear power generation facilities for over three decades. Our experts develop through-life management strategies to enable your nuclear plant life extension and plant performance optimisation; providing the underlying engineering and nuclear safety justifications needed to deliver your strategy effectively.

Power generation through life support

Our SQEP engineers work closely with you to understand your project's engineering and safety needs, and to ensure we provide a value added solution. Our work spans the whole life cycle and includes Periodic Safety Reviews, outage support, and response to emergent nuclear plant faults, as well as power plant life extension and performance optimisation.
