YEARS OF EXPERIENCE

More Than 25 Years of Experience

Rizzo Associates Czech is specialized in dynamic modeling and in high technology structural and mechanical analysis and design for nuclear and other industrial facilities using advanced software and hardware products.

Rizzo Associates Czech provides services ranging from conceptual studies and criteria development to detailed analysis of structures, systems and components for both new and existing facilities, particularly for nuclear power plants.

We have detailed knowledge regarding the structural-mechanical design and safety analysis of the PWR, BWR, CANDU, and especially the VVER type nuclear reactor plants.
