EDF Group - Demonstrating Responsible Performance

Bureau Veritas has proven to be a compatible partner. When technical issues arise, we call upon their specialist expertise to help us find solutions. We evolve together, and find solutions together.
Rémy Valles
Head of Industrial Relations for the Atomic Energy Division, EDF

BUSINESS CHALLENGE

EDF (Electricité De France) is a leader in electricity generation and distribution, and is committed to a responsible performance strategy which combines economic performance, social equality and environmental responsibility.
EDF has high expectations in its role as a responsible organization. It calls upon Bureau Veritas to constantly fine-tune and improve its performance in the areas of Quality, Health, Safety, Environment and Social Accountability (QHSE&SA).
EDF is responsible for 19 nuclear power plants in France incorporating a total of 58 reactors, a massive task with little margin for error.

SOLUTION

Constant and permanent surveillance of installations is required to guarantee continued power production and safety.
Of course, security and safety of nuclear installations are taken into consideration from concept stage. But once in operation, a total safety approach is adopted which covers not only the risk of radiation to staff, but also all the classic safety issues of any industrial site.
This makes it a year-round mission for Bureau Veritas, entrusted with a great number of tasks by EDF.
Several different professions are involved, for both periodic regulatory inspections and for non-regulatory services. These include checking electrical installations, metallurgical investigation, non-destructive testing, pressure testing, fire safety checks, training and auditing.

BENEFITS

With suppliers willing to commit to a high degree of proactivity and professionalism, EDF generally goes far beyond the legal requirements in regard to safety measures, which the company considers important in the context of atomic energy. For example, their gas and liquid emission levels are up to 100 times lower than what is actually authorized. EDF often contributes to developing new legislation that governs its own activity.

The stakes for EDF center around having an activity that is sustainable and a credibility in the QHSE&SA sector. Bureau Veritas proved to be a compatible partner and helps EDF achieve its objectives.
