UK nuclear sector companies are being invited to attend a Civil Nuclear Energy Showcase in London from 5-6 February, being organised by UK Trade & Investment in partnership with the Nuclear Industry Association.
Aiming to promote UK nuclear supply chain capability to senior decision makers from overseas markets, this free event will provide a platform for overseas delegates to learn more about the UK civil nuclear offering.
UK delegates will gain an unrivalled insight into nuclear opportunities available in over 25 international markets, including Brazil, the USA, China, India, Japan, South Africa and Russia.
Craig Jones, Head of Energy, UK Trade & Investment said: “The Civil Nuclear Energy Showcase provides a unique opportunity for UK firms to meet with international decision makers to gain a deeper understanding of civil nuclear programmes in a range of overseas markets.
“The event will demonstrate the capabilities of UK-based contractors and organisations to supply services and products to potential customers based overseas who already have, or are considering undertaking, new nuclear build or who have a need to decommission existing nuclear facilities.”
UK-based owner/operators, major contractors, equipment manufacturers and service providers are all encouraged to attend the event, to be held at the Holiday Inn, Regents Park in London.
A two day event, the Civil Nuclear Energy Showcase comprises two parallel streams: New Nuclear Build & Operational Support and Waste & Decommissioning.
Topics covered in the New Nuclear Build & Operational Support stream include the legal and regulatory framework for new nuclear build, the generic design assessment process, project support to new build, operational support, financing nuclear new build, supply chain issues and skills and training.
The Waste & Decommissioning stream will cover transferable elements of UK decommissioning strategy, UK decommissioning supply chain experience that is relevant to overseas markets, lessons on establishing decommissioning support frameworks, UK waste management and decommissioning policy, national and international case studies and innovation in UK decommissioning.
