Nuclear knowledge: a time of renewal

In today’s nuclear sector, there is a growing demand for skills at all levels. ALTEN is identifying needs, applying knowledge, and conducting training to help build the capacity required in the nuclear workforce.

Nuclear engineering skills are in need of reinforcement. “The sector has been on hold for the past few years and there is a shortage of skills on the market, while the demand is increasing, both nationally and internationally,” says Jean-Gabriel Yvert, Head of Technical Practices at ALTEN. It is estimated that 100,000 people will need to be recruited over the next ten years in France alone.


ALTEN works with key players in the sector on all major projects and across the entire nuclear value chain, positioning itself as an end-to-end service provider (R&D engineering, industrial methods, supply chain, digital, etc.) and participates in large-scale strategic projects requiring significant engineering needs in the areas of New Built, operation and maintenance in operational condition, commissioning and start-up, decommissioning and waste treatment, transport and distribution.  


With more than 3,000 engineers worldwide dedicated to the energy industry, ALTEN participates in large-scale strategic projects with significant engineering components in the fields of nuclear power, renewable energy, oil and gas and energy storage.
