- Materials Science & Engineering Center
Altran provides high value engineering, consulting and transformation services during the key stages of the Asset Management lifecycle for energy production and delivery facilities worldwide.
Disruptive trends are driving a revolution in the energy industry. The changes are profound in terms of their scope, velocity, and systemic impacts. The acceleration of technology innovation is upending traditional business models, in particular for those energy industry sectors that manage the Asset Lifecyle for major energy and industrial facilities.
Digitization impacts every stage of the energy and industrial Asset Lifecyle, from Front End Engineering and Design into Detailed Engineering and Design, then during Construction and Commissioning, continuing into Operations and Maintenance, Modification and Facility Repurposing and Decommissioning.
Overshadowing the decades long Energy and Industrial Asset Lifecycle is the ever-changing concern and focus on environmental impacts of major energy and industrial facilities and the push toward clean energy and energy efficiency.
Altran’s deep domain experience in developing and delivering major industrial facilities for utilities, independent power developers, oil and gas companies, renewable energy developers, nuclear power operators and industrial manufacturers combined with our technology consulting services, World Class Center for Data Analytics, and Global Development Centers for Programming provide unique value in deploying the Digital Roadmap.

Energy & Utility Challenges
Working daily on real issues and helping clients address the challenges they face enhances our services utility
We understand that our clients in the energy industry are confronted with several major challenges such as providing sustainable energy, optimizing fossil fuel recovery and engineering alternative energy sources.
Altran’s team of consultants dedicated to the energy sector employ their skills throughout the US and Europe (France, UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands and Sweden).
Combining economic growth and well being for all is the main challenge to overcome energy-related challenges
The world must be able to sustain the level of energy consumption per capita required to support the economic build-up of emerging markets.
This presents several challenges, such as 1/ extracting fossil fuels under more extreme, more economical and safer conditions; 2/ building up refining capacity; 3/ reducing nuclear waste and 4/ ensuring more reliable means for transporting electricity.
Whatever our level of energy consumption, we must limit the extent of pollution created by existing manufacturing processes, reduce our consumption and develop consistent, reliable and clean forms of alternative energy.
Energy & Utilities Market
Understanding the market
To gain a better understanding of the market, Altran has adopted a three-pronged approach:
- Identify the market-challenge areas where the Group’s services and solutions bring the best of our expertise (e.g. Digital Control assessment and upgrades engineering),
- Acquire a more in-depth understanding of certain challenges that would help enhance our scope of expertise and range of solutions (e.g. energy efficiency in Industry)
- Facilitate cooperation between our specialized teams and partners in order to fulfill specific needs (e.g. EU calls for energy-related tenders).
