ATOMENA offer solutions that can help our clients address both physical assets (plant facilities and equipment) and financial assets (plant value and profit). Lifecycle management is the process by which nuclear power plants integrate operations, maintenance, engineering, regulatory, environmental, and business activities that:
(1) Manage plant condition such as equipment reliability, aging, and obsolescence;
(2) Optimize operating life, including the options of early retirement and license renewal; and
(3) Maximize plant value while, above all, maintaining plant safety.

ATOMENA provides essential consultancy services for your O&M program to ensure the all the necessary policies, processes and procedures that provide direction for maintaining structures, systems or components of the plant are in place to expand the life-span of your assets and meet the governing regulator’s requirements and expectations for license renewals and life-extension.

ATOMENA can help your organization optimize its operating lifecycle through the introduction and development of a robust outage management strategy. ATOMENA can help to devise a planning and preventative maintenance strategy to complement the outage scoping process. Critical inputs for the strategy include the overall strategic initiatives, industry and plant benchmarking, and regulatory/licensing requirements. The development of an outage management program reduces the likelihood of a forced, or unplanned outage, that would otherwise disrupt operations thereby decreasing revenues and increasing costs.
