Engineering

There are presently 450 degreed engineers in Holtec’s employ and growing, many with advanced degrees, at three operation centers are available to support HGS’ project undertakings. In addition, HGS can access scores of contract engineers with deep experience in mechanical, civil, structural and nuclear disciplines.

The engineering analyses are carried using extensively benchmarked and NRC-approved computer codes on a battery of 64-module parallel processors.
