The former Digital Electronic and Nuclear Instrumentation Center (DENIC) which is now the Engineering Services Center (ESC) is one of the Centres of the National Nuclear Research Institute of Ghana Atomic Energy Commission (GAEC). The Engineering Services Center was established to provide technical support in the form of installation, maintenance, and repairs of nuclear and other scientific instruments in GAEC and for other organizations in Ghana as well. Act 204 (1963) was superseded by Act 588 (2000) which gives the authorization for GAEC and as such ESC to provide the above mention services By this current Act, DENIC and now ESC is to provide the above-mentioned services, pursue research, development and training to support research activities in GAEC and for income generation. Since the inception of the Center in 1963 the inflow of technical support from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has been remarkable.
