Come join us in reshaping the future with AtkinsRéalis. AtkinsRéalis is dedicated in engineering a better future for our planet and its people.

AtkinsRéalis is one of Canada's largest private sector nuclear engineering groups. We have been providing a wide range of services to the nuclear industry in Canada and around the world since for more than 60 years.  We are proud to be the steward of Canadian CANDU nuclear technology and to apply our extensive knowledge to support the emerging area of new CANDU reactor builds and new SMR reactor builds.  Our expertise includes Nuclear Steam Plant (NSP) engineering, Balance of Plant (BOP) engineering, Plant Life Management and Extension, Retube Tooling Systems, Inspection and Maintenance Services, Steam Generator Replacement, Plant Equipment Refurbishment and Retrofits.

The Project Director Nuclear Island or Conventional Island will report to the Project Director – New Build, as a key role within an Alliance contract structure.
