At the Orano la Hague site, Operational Excellence is at the heart of the management process based on respect for standards, accountability, teamwork and presence in the field.
The strategy is based on a simplified organization and short decision-making chains.
Operational excellence is an approach aimed at securing the best performance for customers, the company and its employees.
Operational Excellence relies on:
• Identifying tasks that do not bring added value.
• Methodically implementing improvement workstreams.
In March 2017, the Japan Institute of Plant Maintenance awarded Orano la Hague the "Excellence TPM - Category A” award. Recognized internationally, this award highlights companies engaged in an industrial performance approach called Total Productive Maintenance (TPM).
In June 2017, nine subcontractors from Orano la Hague and members of Nucleopolis, the nuclear division of Normandy Energies, received the Exc'Op designation. Awarded by the Normandy Development Agency, it commends subcontractor companies of major purchasers, strongly engaged in a process of operational excellence.
