Why research reactors are so important for Africa
Advise governmental or private entities in implementing safe, secure, sustainable and environment friendly nuclear applications
NPC can mobilize a group of international experts in nuclear applications and nuclear knowledge management. Through our knowledge, own experiences and above all powerful network, NPC‘s expertise encompasses the strategic management of large projects, as well as technical and legislative aspects of nuclear applications development and utilization, including extensive experience with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). We want this expertise to serve the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and in particular SDG 7 to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all. We, at NPC, are convinced that wisely implemented nuclear energy is key to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 7, which is central to all other SDGs.
We have no affiliation to nuclear application vendors and no vested interests in any nuclear related technology. Our services are impartial and evidence based tailored to the particular situation and needs and priorities of your State.
We work to achieve measurable results and adhere to:
- UN Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) (2005)
- African Union Convention on Preventing and Combatting Corruption (2003)
- OECD Anti-Bribery Convention (1997)
- The Integrity and Anti-Corruption Initiative of the African Development Bank (2005)
Strategic planning for nuclear related projects is essential because the nuclear sector is subject to fast evolving economics and technology, as well as increasing environmental and social challenges. Based on well-established methodologies and tools, NPC assists you in the strategic decisions to ensure the envisaged nuclear application is the best solution for your national needs.
Project Planning and implementation
Once a decision is taken to implement a given nuclear application, NPC provides assistance in the review of existing arrangements, the detailed implementation planning involving all stakeholders and the procurement process for equipment and related services. Because we have no present or past affiliation with any nuclear vendor, as well as high ethical standards, we guarantee full independence and objectivity.
Once a project for the introduction of a nuclear application has started and given the usually high investments involved, a key success factor is the close monitoring and controlling of the project. NPC can fulfill the role of an independent and neutral agent between the suppliers and you as customer, with the objective to ensure that the equipment and related services will be delivered on time, on schedule, within agreed costs, and will meet your needs.
