Nuclear market special features
The nuclear industry implements various processes to produce energy in demanding industrial facilities and must meet drastic requirements both to ensure their availability and therefore profitability, as well as guarantee their safety.
In Basic Nuclear Facilities, ventilation systems contribute to the reliability of these installations by ensuring the operation of key components under suitable conditions. These systems contribute to the confinement, filtration and operation of the processes.
To this end, ventilation and products supplied by F2A contribute to the continuity of the installation’s operation and to nuclear safety.
Since 1975, F2A has been supporting nuclear industry players in their growing search for ever more reliable solutions.
The equipment supplied by F2A contributes to the people and environment.
The products meet with following technical specifications :
- Earthquake resistance
- Corrosion resistance
- PMUC raw material
- Acoustic treatment
The dedicated team ensures to comply with safety and quality requirements :
- Project management
- Quality Management
- Specific end-customers requirements
In order to meet the challenges of nuclear safety, the design and manufacture of products dedicated to the nuclear industry have to be guided by robust processes. This operating accuracy show that F2A’s products comply with the technical requirements, the achievement of the most stringent quality level and their traceability throughout the supply and manufacturing chain.
