CMI and INNOVEOX sign a commercial partnership in the fields of nuclear waste management and decommissioning
June 06th 2016
The nuclear industry is seeking new technologies and know-how in order to handle the challenges in waste management, decontamination, dismantling and clean up. Numerous investments are expected in these fields.
It is with this in mind that the teams of CMI and INNOVEOX got together in order to jointly respond to new calls for tender in France, Belgium and internationally. Started some weeks ago, the partnership has already led to a first commercial success with a major player in nuclear energy.
Thanks to the complementary nature of their expertise, Innoveox and CMI Services are able to formulate a comprehensive offering to nuclear operators – in design and execution – both for facilities in service and for decommissioning & dismantling.
The fact that CMI has operations in more than 17 countries, along with the innovations of the INNOVEOX group, and in particular its SYNEOX subsidiary (industrial robotics, automated inerting process via ceramics, the treatment of liquid waste by OHTS*) should lead to a more rapid deployment of these technologies on new markets and in new geographical zones. CMI Services will leverage the experience it has accumulated in nuclear maintenance, in engineering, manufacturing, project management and on-site interventions.
Franck Pasqualini, Director General of CMI Services, details: “By bringing together the accumulated experience of CMI in providing services to nuclear sector, and the technological solutions developed by Innoveox, we are able to supply turnkey solutions to nuclear operators. We are able to immediately offer innovative solutions to the market within the complex and demanding domain of waste management and dismantling ».
Jean-Christophe Lépine, Chairman and Managing Director of INNOVEOX, is happy to be working together with a large scale industrial company such as CMI : “This is an important step in bringing a more concrete industrial and commercial dimension to our group in the nuclear domain”.
