Exporting high value-added technology strengthens our position as a trustworthy country in the nuclear field for peaceful purposes. Furthermore, this achievement markedly shows Argentina’s scientific and technological capacity, which will in turn favor the country’s international and commercial relations worldwide.
HIGH ADDED VALUE TECHNOLOGY
Argentina – through its technology company INVAP - has proudly won the international tender for a nuclear research reactor and radioisotope production facility for medical uses in The Netherlands.
This is a milestone in the history of national technology since Argentina manage to enter the competitive European nuclear-technology market.
Environmental and safety controls
The Netherlands has the strictest environmental and safety controls, in accordance with the European Community’s high standards and regulations. The social license obtained in this country clearly shows the capability and excellence of both INVAP and TBI.
During the fourth edition of the Nuclear Security Summit, INVAP received an award from the US Nuclear Energy Institute on account of its nuclear security achievements. On the other hand, TBI is in compliance with the Rotterdam Climate Initiative (RCI) regulations on the reduction of CO2 emissions.
