Total Outre-Mer: Safety at height

Apave International and its subsidiaries in Africa and the Middle East have just been chosen to conduct a Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) audit of more than 400 Total Outre-Mer subcontractors with the aim of assessing their abilities to safely carry out work at height.

This project involves 25 auditors, emphasising the importance of Apave's network across Africa and the Middle East. Total will extend this market to other industries and subcontractors, and is planning on sustaining these audits over a long period of time (one audit per year for each subcontractor).

China: Agreement reached with giants of the Chinese nuclear industry

China General Nuclear (CGN) and China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC), two major public companies in the Chinese nuclear industry, are committed to the biggest nuclear programme in the world..

Indeed, half of all the nuclear power plants under construction in the world are being built in China. The Apave Group (including one of its subsidiaries Sopemea) has positioned itself as a partner to complete CNNC and CGN's offer. These companies have no independent third party in their offer, yet they must qualify their equipment for the British market in compliance with standards in force in Europe.

The Chinese nuclear companies have already signed an agreement for the supply of two Hualong One reactors, the first 100% Chinese third-generation reactor.

In late December 2015, Apave welcomed a delegation from the Nuclear Power Institute of China (NPIC), a subsidiary of CNNC which designs, manufactures, qualifies and maintains equipment for some Chinese nuclear reactors. Following this meeting, a basis agreement was signed between the Apave Group and NPIC. This agreement will see Apave play a role in certification preparation as well as the conducting of equipment qualification.
