Operators and manufacturers of nuclear power plants are very demanding in terms of safety, reliability, quality and functionality when it comes to building, maintaining and repairing their facilities. KAEFER meets these stringent demands with high-performance insulation and fire-protection systems and offers a wide variety of dedicated solutions to its customers. Depending on the location and the specifications, full metal insulation, cassette insulation or mattress insulation is used, as well as specially developed and tested fire-protection systems.

KAEFER has established an excellent reputation amongst nuclear power plant operators worldwide. KAEFER engineers are on site in Brazil, Russia, South Africa, France, Switzerland and Finland. In Olkiluoto, Finland, KAEFER engineers and technicians from France, Finland and Germany are currently working together on the construction of the first European pressurised water reactor (EPR). KAEFER is responsible for insulating the cover of the reactor’s pressure vessel and the primary loop.

The Corporate Competence Centre Nuclear coordinates engineering and design, workflow scheduling and component manufacturing between the KAEFER organisations and individuals involved.
