Nuclear power, a regulated sector of activity
WATTOHM intervenes at 2 levels in the Basic Nuclear Installations cycle. The work undertaken during unit outages exposes workers to the same pollutants as the traditional industry (cutting concrete, sawing, removing insulation, sanding surrounding walls, etc.), with additional exposure to radiation. ASN has set the dose limit per operator at 5 mS / year and a collective dose at xx mS / year.
At the end of the cycle, the BNIs are dismantled and deconstructed in accordance with government recommendations … WATTOHM intervenes in support of rank I workers to suck up dust, smoke, radioiodines, gases emitted during dismantling operations. For example, cutting metal elements using the plasma process generates a lot of harmful smoke for operators and their individual equipment. Dismantling concrete generates fine dust of silica, asbestos and larger, potentially contaminated blocks, which must be sucked up and trapped in “sealed drums”
Our mission, to protect people and their environments, from conventional and potentially contaminated pollutants, in compliance with the rules of the art, directives from different authorities, such as the Labor Directorate (DIRECCTE) or the National Safety Authority ( ASN).
When the handling and handling of waste creates a risk of exposure for operators, WATTOHM designs and offers ventilated suction tables, suction devices coupled to suction and filtration units.
