Nuclear Standards, Nuclear Pedigree

Our quality system accreditations and extensive customer references demonstrate our proven capabilities across the global nuclear industry. 

From the control of our raw materials to final inspection, certification and shipment we apply the highest standards of product integrity, process control combined with the Mannesmann reassurance of product originality.  

From our historical development of PWR power generation for the French (RCC-M) and US (ASME III) programs our knowledge and skills have developed across the global technologies: CANDU, VVER Rosatom, China CPR’s and India PHWR’s. 

Applying our skills to the latest generation of EPR power plants whilst partnering with developing technologies and sciences such as CERN, ITER, small modular reactors, and marine vessels. 

For over 50 years we have partnered with our global customers supplying stainless steel and nickel alloys tubes to the most exacting specification requirements.

Project Management:   

Our nuclear experience reflects not only the exacting product requirements but also that of managing nuclear projects and providing all of the associated documentation requirements.
