Our services:

  • Evaluating the impact of power plants on all areas of the environment and on sustainable development
  • Evaluating the ecological aspects of hydroelectric plants and other power generating plants
  • Examining and assessing the environmental impact of the surface level and underground elements of any potential deep geological repository sites
  • Expertise to support practical implementation across all environmental sectors
  • Writing readily understandable versions of technically demanding papers for public release
