The CPR ODISSEE Members discovered the Manoir Pîtres plant during a visit on November 27. This Research Program is financed by AREVA, CEA, CNRS, EDF, Mecachrome and ‘’la Région des Pays de Loire’’. It gathers the main research organization and industrial groups involved in the French and international nuclear market. Its members work in particular on the development of strengthened steel by oxide dispersion, so-called ODS steel, which is anticipated to be used as cladding material in generation IV nuclear reactors.
This visit was organized by the R&D department of Manoir Industries, in tight collaboration with its GPM Partner (Group of Material Physics: CNRS laboratory, University and INSA of Rouen) global leader in tomographic atomic sensors. The expertise of both these R&D organizations in new material development is celebrated in the scientific and industrial fields. Manoir Industries technical know-how significantly allows the group to be positioned as a game-changing actor in casting components for the primary circuit of nuclear power plants (elbows, pumps and body valves). Its research scope and its collaborations with universities contribute greatly to its reputation as a key player. Manoir Industries mastery of the centrifugation process enables it to manufacture and design high technology products for both the petrochemical and nuclear markets.
Manoir Industries, an international metal processing casting and forging group, develops proprietary alloys and manufactures high performance metal components molded and forged for the petrochemical, nuclear, oil extraction, civil engineering, energy, defense and construction markets. The solid expertise reputation has driven sustainable position through the worldwide industry and its customers.
