London (PRWEB) July 04, 2011
From October 25-27 2011, nuclear experts will meet in Charlotte, North Carolina to discuss construction across North America and ways in which the industry can push forward and ensure the nuclear renaissance is reignited. At a nuclear conference in April 2011, Senator Lindsey Graham stated: "We are trying to expand the loan guarantee program to include up to a dozen reactors - once you get a dozen built, we can prove to the world and ourselves that we know how to build".
As well as hearing from the major utilities pushing forward with NPP construction, the meeting will also play host to a number of other representatives who are constructing nuclear projects across North America. These will include the construction work at Hanford WTP, the MOX Facility at Savannah River, the licensing experience at the American Centrifuge project and the refurbishment work undertaken by Bruce Power to name a few.
The meeting this year will cover a variety of construction challenges ensuring you walk away with business critical knowledge including:
- Ensure compliance on your nuclear project through updates on ITAAC closure, construction assessment and the potential impact of the Fukushima disaster on U.S. guidelines
- Understand the key licensing issues pre and post COL issuance & the importance of licensee oversight for vendor activities to achieve project momentum
- Benefit from a complete review of domestic & international nuclear construction projects and implement the experience gained to date to improve you project planning and execution
- Establish comprehensive project oversight to ensure NRC compliance whilst maintaining a cost effective schedule for successful project completion
- Gain clear guidance on the key EPC contract negotiation challenges and overall project management strategies to ensure you are primed for project success whilst mitigating costly delays
