ALTEN opens new site in Marseille

ALTEN opens new site in Marseille and plans to recruit 100 new employees

ALTEN, a world leader in engineering and technology services, will inaugurate its new Marseille Michelet site on May 30, 2024, which will welcome more than 200 employees. This new site strengthens ALTEN’s expansion project in the Marseille region, by recruiting 100 new employees.

The Group already has a strong presence in the region, with a branch in Vitrolles opening in 2019, hosting nearly 1,000 employees. This new location in Marseille is strategically close to its customers in the energy and nuclear sectors. ALTEN selected these premises in a modern building that meets its high standards in terms of environmental sustainability. 

The 100 new hires planned for Marseille in 2024 will be in the planning and project management, project engineer, control/automation engineer and operations/safety engineer professions.  

“ALTEN is a long-standing partner of major players in the energy and nuclear industries. With the opening of this new site, we aim to increase our capacity to respond to our customers’ challenges and contribute to the economic development of Marseille and the South-East region.” 

Stéphane OUGIER – Executive Director – ALTEN Group

With 3,000 engineers worldwide dedicated to the energy industry (including 900 in the nuclear sector), ALTEN is involved across the entire energy value chain (uranium chemistry, engineering for new and operating nuclear power plants and electricity transmission/distribution), from research and development to industrial methods, supply chain management and digitalization.  

ALTEN is involved in major strategic projects with significant engineering components in the fields of nuclear power, renewable energies, oil & gas and energy storage. In terms of quality and nuclear safety, ALTEN meets the highest standards, as attested by its ISO 19443 certification obtained in 2023. 

In France, ALTEN’s activities in the energy sector are developed from the South-East region, through Lyon and Paris, to Normandy and the United Kingdom. The aim of the new Marseille site is to become one of the centers of excellence for these activities, accelerating their development.
