CleanuC opens a new France South Branch in Bagnols-sur-Ceze

CleanuC grows up and opens a new branch

With this new branch located 19, Avenue Général de Gaulle à Bagnols-sur-Cèze (30), CleanuC intends to be closer to its clients in South-East France.

Orano signs with CleanuC to optimise a nuclear facility operating costs

CleanuC signs its first contract with ORANO to provide elements leading to the optimisation of the operating costs of a facility undergoing decommissioning. This study will be based on a rationalisation of the nuclear safety approach taking into account the updated configuration of the facility.

This contract confirms the industry’s interest in the innovative approach and method developed by CleanuC to respond to its needs. This approach combines the know-how in rationalising the nuclear safety analysis with CleanuC’s knowledge base on operating and decommissioning costs.

The ROOTS® Method – an Innovative Reference Nuclear Safety Case Method

The ROOTS® nuclear safety analysis method is a proven, innovative method that combines both a deductive and an inductive risk assessment conducted at the functional level. Discover it in our new White Paper 2017-01 ‘The ROOTS® method – an innovative reference method for the nuclear safety case development for laboratories, nuclear plants and nuclear decommissioning’.

Roots is a method that enables iterations between deductive approaches (the roots) and inductive approaches (the branches)

The method allows to generate a comprehensive analysis of the facility and responds to the latest requirements for safety cases for nuclear facilities in France. It allows to identify those Elements Important for Safety and Activities Important for Safety and define the related requirements. This leads to operational requirements that are more finely adapted to the safety requirements. The method has the benefits to identify those requirements based on the operational condition of the facility thus providing a much needed flexibility, in particular during decommissioning activities.

The method has been developed by CleanuC and is today proven and implemented in various stages of detail on 5 nuclear facilities in France. Additional implementations are ongoing.

Read our new White Paper 2017-01 ‘The ROOTS® method – an innovative reference method for the nuclear safety case development for laboratories, nuclear plants and nuclear decommissioning’ describing the method, its justification and the benefits provided in terms of safety case implementation and safety requirements flexibility in nuclear facilities.

Reinforcement of CleanuC team with the arrival of Mathieu Julien, decommissioning manager

CleanuC welcomes Mathieu Julien as manager of our decommissioning center of expertise.

Mathieu JulienAfter studies in fundamental physics, Mathieu Julien studied practical nuclear facility decommissioning. With more than 10 years experience in decommissioning engineering and works, he has a particular expertise in strategy development and project estimating.

Mathieu brings to CleanuC a practical and recognized expertise in the field of decommissioning, allied to a detailed knowledge of work in nuclear conditions.
