Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) November 22, 2013
A 26-member delegation of Canada’s nuclear energy professionals will participate in a series of trade-related activities from November 27 to November 30 in Mumbai. Participants include representatives of publicly listed companies such as Aecon Nuclear (TO:ARE), AMEC (LON:AMEC), L-3 Communications MAPPS Inc. (NYSE:LLL), and Sulzer Pumps (SWX:SUN). Other delegates from AECL, Cameco Fuel Manufacturing, Candu Energy Inc., CNSC , Kinectrics, OPG, Sartrex, and Thorburn will be part of this first-time trade mission from Canada.
The Organization of Canadian Nuclear Industries (OCI) has retained Amritt, Inc. to provide advice on technical and commercial collaboration in nuclear energy between Canada and India. Amritt interviewed 16 key Indian suppliers in depth last month. Senior staff from OCI, Amritt, the Canadian High Commission and the Province of Ontario will also be part of the delegation.
“Canada is the world’s largest producer of nuclear energy utilizing heavy water/ natural uranium reactors while India is the second largest producer of energy using this technology. India’s safeguarded reactor sites such as those at Rawatbhata, Rajasthan are thirty years old and those at Kakrapar, Gujarat are 20 years old. Canadian experience with aging equipment, upgrades, reliability and security of nuclear power plants can be of value in providing proven cost-effective solutions for current and upcoming concerns in India. OCI members are also able to provide technology, products, insights and guidance for the new heavy water reactors planned for Gorakhpur, Haryana and Mahi Banswara , Rajasthan and Kaiga, Karnataka” said Gunjan Bagla, Managing Director of Amritt Inc., a management consultancy that advises North American and Indian companies on successful collaboration and partnership.
OCI consists of more than 180 leading Canadian suppliers to the nuclear industry in Canada and worldwide. OCI members companies employ more than 10,000 highly skilled and specialized people who manufacture major equipment and components and provide engineering services and support for the 20 heavy water nuclear power plants in Canada as well as for heavy water and light water reactors in global markets. OCI members have the capabilities to support all aspects of design, engineering services, manufacturing, operations, maintenance, upgrades, life extensions and safety of any nuclear power plant.
Delegates will be present at the Canada Pavilion at the India Nuclear Energy Summit at the Nehru Center on November 28 as well at the invitation-only Canada-India Seminar on November 30.
