Nuclear Engineering Services
Nuclear Engineering is a type of engineering concerned with the application of the breakdown (fission) as well as the fusion of atomic nuclei and/or the application of other sub-atomic physics, all based on the principles of nuclear physics.
Nuclear fission itself includes the interaction and maintenance of systems and components like nuclear reactors, nuclear power plants, and/or nuclear weapons. The field also includes the study of medical and other applications of ionizing radiation, nuclear safety, heat/thermodynamics transport, and nuclear fuel.
ARINT South Africa offers expert nuclear services in South Africa and abroad, including nuclear transport, radiological services, and the treatment and disposal of nuclear waste.
The uses and benefits of nuclear engineering services
Nuclear engineers create systems to harness the energy released from nuclear reactions. Their field, nuclear engineering, deals with the application of nuclear energy in a variety of settings.
The applications of nuclear engineering include setting up and managing nuclear power plants, planning and creating submarine propulsion systems, building and maintaining medical diagnostic equipment such as MRI machines, food production, nuclear weapons and nuclear waste disposal processes and facilities.
Nuclear engineering services are generally required by:
- defence contractors
- construction contractors
- hospitals and clinics
- equipment manufacturers
- government personnel contractors
Nuclear engineers are also a valuable aid to government institutions such as health care facilities, national laboratories, regulatory agencies, and the military.
Nuclear engineering services by ARINT South Africa
ARINT South Africa is a South African-based International Professional Engineering Services company. Our customers are mainly large international companies, service organisations and utilities, which means that we have extensive experience in the field of nuclear engineering.
ARINT South Africa also has wide-ranging nuclear engineering experience in accident prevention through proper design and training; protection through monitoring and control systems, active shutdown and cooling systems; and mitigation to limit consequences through engineered safety systems. We are practiced in ensuring the safe handling of radioactive materials, and the treatment and disposal of nuclear waste in accordance with legal regulations.
Our team of highly-skilled professionals and experts includes our MD, François Mellet, who has considerable expertise in the nuclear engineering sector. He spent a decade working in Generation at the Koeberg Nuclear Power Station as a commissioning and project engineer on all types of system projects, including civil, electrical, high-voltage distribution yards, instrumentation, mechanical and nuclear.
