Analytical laboratory working with the energy and nuclear industries
Your needs : to develop efficient procedures and reliable products to meet environmental challenges.
Being subject to the tough challenges facing sustainable energy and the need to protect the environment, you are looking to optimize your products, materials or procedures according to quality, sustainability and security practices.
As major players in the designing, construction, maintenance and operation of nuclear stations or other energy production systems you are trying to abide by these practices by routinely inspecting your raw materials and other products or materials used in the process with the aim of correcting any failures.
To support you in your efforts, assistance from a laboratory specialized in analysis and characterization, certified by recognized authorities, will allow you to reliably evaluate the conformity of your products.
Our solution : to assist industrialists in the energy sector in improving their materials with quality control and analysis.
FILAB’s expertise in the fields of energy production and of nuclear energy contribute towards the advancement of your industrial projects in terms of inspection, optimization and counseling services regarding your activities.
