Nuclear sector

Nuclear energy has been a major source of energy in the world for several decades. Nuclear energy is used to generate electricity significantly in several countries. Nuclear plants produce large amounts of energy constantly, making them useful for meeting electricity demand on an ongoing basis. Likewise, nuclear energy does not emit large amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) during electricity generation, which makes it attractive from an environmental point of view.

The dawn of the nuclear age, marked by innovations and challenges, promises a future of synergy between advanced and sustainable energies for a cleaner world.

The nuclear age began in the 1950s with the development of nuclear plants for civil and military purposes. During the 1960s and 1970s, nuclear energy experienced rapid growth. Despite the challenges, some countries have considered a “nuclear renaissance” in recent years, exploring safer and more sustainable technologies. Nuclear energy has a great future: technological innovation (more advanced nuclear technologies are being developed that are expected to be safer and more efficient), potential for decarbonization (in the context of the transition towards cleaner energy sources, nuclear energy can play a key role in the decarbonization of the energy matrix) and coexistence with renewable energies (nuclear energy and renewable energies can coexist to provide a stable, low-carbon energy source).

CEARA’s firm presence in the nuclear sector has led it to participate in such important international projects as the supply, assembly and testing of instrumentation and control equipment for the front cryogenic pump distribution system (FECDS) and the pumping system. Torus cryogenic and Cryostat (TCCS) I&C for the European Joint Undertaking for ITER and the Development of Fusion Energy (FUSION FOR ENERGY).

The ITER project aims to build a fusion device, twice the size of current largest devices, with the aim of demonstrating the scientific and technical feasibility of fusion energy. This is a joint project between the European Union, China, India, Japan, South Korea, the Russian Federation and the United States. ITER will be built in Europe, in Cadarache, in the south of France.
