Holtec International continuously achieves the highest quality and safety standards in the industry
Adopting every conceivable measure to ensure the physical protection of the Company’s associates and contractors is the foremost responsibility of Holtec International’s executive leadership. Although industrial mishaps are mercifully rare, in our country, they have not been entirely eliminated, which has prompted the USNRC to issue a Policy Statement on nuclear safety. This NRC Policy Statement is a succinct message on safety that should be read and internalized by the management and workers in all industries. To ensure that this NRC declaration reaches as many workers as possible (and all Holtec associates), it has been reproduced below in a highlighted format.
Holtec’s Safety Doctrine, enunciated in the five principles noted below by the Company’s CEO, is fully aligned with the NRC’s policy statement. This doctrine has been the guiding beacon in formulating the Company’s continuous drive since the 1980s to reach an ever higher plateau of safety of its workforce.
Holtec International adheres to stringent quality and safety standards. Holtec International’s proven quality assurance (QA) program and safety record have been tested through successful implementation of projects for more than a quarter century. Developed from a vast collection of detailed written procedures and instructions, the company considers its QA program vital to the proper functioning of its nuclear projects.
Our commitment to innovation
Innovation_Davit CraneHoltec has a long and storied history of implementing a variety of innovative, engineered solutions to meet the needs of our clients, overcoming technical challenges posed at sites worldwide. When faced with unique and unprecedented challenges, Holtec’s skilled staff of experienced engineers and designers devises safe, effective, feasible and cost efficient solutions that work within the constraints of the plant design.
Holtec’s innovative solutions provide our clients with flexible alternative strategies for implementing our products, eliminating the need for costly plant modifications and upgrades. Holtec’s patented Davit Crane, pictured to the right, prevented a domestic commercial nuclear power plant from performing a major structural overhaul of the fuel building and crane. Holtec developed the Davit Crane to operate within the restrictions of the client’s existing building, ultimately saving the utility tens of millions of dollars, while safely and effectively implementing our solution.
Holtec’s spirit of innovation has propelled the Company to the forefront of technical leadership in our industry. Holtec’s technical leadership is evidenced by our patent portfolio, which includes over 60 patent applications worldwide, with more than half have been issued as patents. We are continuously investing in research and development to grow our portfolio of innovative technologies and manufacturing processes.
