IMPSA

Nuclear Industry

IMPSA has manufactured and supplied equipment to the nuclear industry during 40 years and is the only company in Latin America with ASME N Certification for the design and manufacture of Class 1 nuclear equipment.

The company has supplied heavy equipment (steam generators, exchangers, pressurizers, locks, special valves, hydroelectric turbine, etc.) to Atucha II Power Station and important equipment to the Embalse Nuclear Power Station and its service life extension. Nowadays it is manufacturing the main components for the Carem 25 M Reactor.

The plant where these nuclear components are manufactured (Nuclear Room) is one of the largest and most modern that exists. There are only three companies in Latin America that have been awarded ASME N certification. But IMPSA is the only one that has proprietary design.
