Our Facilities in Schenectady, New York

The Schenectady site is home to a full-scale chemistry laboratory, a precision machine shop which specialises in the machining of the most advanced and challenging materials samples and components, and the largest and most sophisticated high temperature water corrosion facility in the world.

Through its prior association with GE Global Research, the lab has amassed over 10,000,000 hours of Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC) testing experience in a variety of environmental conditions, including BWR and PWR nuclear applications.
