German nuclear technology is used in many projects both in Germany and abroad.

With our export strategy, Framatome in Germany provides an important contribution to the preservation of nuclear know-how in Germany: Because, even after the nuclear energy phaseout, nuclear expertise will still be needed, for example, in order to cope with dismantling and final disposal using domestic resources.

Apart from nuclear technology, we are also driving the development of hydrogen- and battery-based energy storage systems. Moreover, we offer solutions for other sectors in the fields of IT security, materials technology, component testing and qualification, testing systems and services, and monitoring and diagnostics.
