ALSYMEX in nuclear energy

ALSYMEX strategy in nuclear is to become a major player for large and complex projects regarding dismantling & decommissioning of nuclear reactors in France & Abroad. In addition, ALSYMEX reinforces its position for the supply of large components for new build research reactors. With a skilful team of engineers and technicians mobilized on site, ALSYMEX is able to take in charge such large projects involving multi-disciplinary competences.

Below are listed some examples of our last references:

Research reactors

Jules HOROWITZ Reactor (RJH) – TechniAtome

ALSYMEX is involved since more ten years in the industrialization, manufacturing and installation of the reflectors for the core of research reactor RJH based in CEA Cadarache.

ASTRID - CEA

ALSYMEX is a partner of the CEA since 2013 for the Hot Cell design of the GEN IV Sodium Fast Reactor project ASTRID. Therefore, ALSYMEX develops the fuel handling tools and the manufacturing scenario for the hexagonal shape fuel element.

Dismantling and decommissioning

PHENIX - CEA

ALSYMEX is in charge since 2015 of the engineering, manufacturing and erection on site of the new fuel handling arm for the dismantling of the French Sodium Fast Reactor PHENIX located at CEA Marcoule.

SUPERPHENIX - FRAMATOME

ALSYMEX was awarded for the design, manufacturing and installation of mechanical equipment for the dismantling of the sodium fast reactor SUPERPHENIX. The scope includes radioactive wastes (RAW) conveyors, drums handling and a fully equipped workshop for the large rotating plug cutting.
