Current projects

ITPIA Services, NNB Hinkley Point C Project


LRQA Apave was appointed by NNB Generation Company Limited as the ITPIA for the Hinkley Point project in 2009. We have been continuously providing independent conformity assessment and associated services at suppliers of all high integrity equipment and systems.

AREVA Creusot Forge improvement project


AREVA contacted LRQA Apave in 2015 for an independent view of their concerns regarding manu-facturing at one of their plants. We reported findings to AREVA, as well as to a panel of interna-tional nuclear safety authorities. Currently we provide independent assessments of the process improvements being introduced at the facility.
