We produce a variety of containers for handling radioactive materials of all classifications. The choice of materials ranges from the use of different casting qualities to granulated concrete and steel.

The range of services is completed by the authorization to carry out type tests. For more than 30 prototype types, the required certificates of qualification for the transport and storage of the casks have already been successfully completed in our manufacturing facilities.
