Risk and hazard assessments

Artelia has been accredited by the French Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Transport to perform safety studies of hydraulic structures. This accreditation, to perform monitoring on embankments and dams, attests to the skills and dedication of the teams working daily alongside operators, especially on nearly 40 class A or B large dams owned by Electricité de France. Numerous hydrological and dam break wave studies have also been performed in order to prevent risks related to managing these major structures. Artelia has also developed specific expertise in the implementation of risk and hazard assessments for industry, especially in the area of Oil & Gas for which it assists key accounts all over the world.
