On the sidelines of ATOMEXPO-2019 in Sochi, JSC “Rusatom Service” will hold a round table on nuclear infrastructure
On 15 April 2019 on the sidelines of the XI International forum ATOMEXPO event in Sochi, Russian Federation, JSC “Rusatom Service” as an integrator of the Rosatom State Corporation for nuclear infrastructure, is organizing the Round Table Session on Nuclear Infrastructure “Building Nuclear Infrastructure as a Key Component for the Sustainability of Nuclear Projects”.
During the Round Table session representatives of the State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom, IAEA, World Nuclear Association, the embarking countries, countries developing or planning to develop and improve their nuclear power programme will share their insights on topical issues of nuclear infrastructure development.
Today the global agenda for the use of atomic technology is expanding rapidly. The widespread use of nuclear technologies by the global community has become a key factor in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
National nuclear projects are designed to make a difference in the sustainable development goals. The comprehensive development of nuclear infrastructure involves the large-scale development of human resources, the creation of a regulatory and legal framework to regulate nuclear energy. It is important to promote the improving of a country’s scientific potential for the use of nuclear and radiation technologies in industry, agriculture, science, and medicine. Nuclear infrastructure is one of the key tools for mitigating technical, administrative, regulatory, financial and other risks in the implementation of the project to build a nuclear energy facility for both the customer country and the supplying country.
In this regard, Rosatom offers its foreign partners a package of services as an integrated proposal to assist in the creation and improvement of the national nuclear infrastructure.
As of today, Rosatom has successfully implemented projects to assess the state of the nuclear power source in Bolivia and Zambia, and organized to promote the development of their national nuclear infrastructures. In the nearest future, similar work on nuclear infrastructure is planned in other countries, partners of Rosatom (Turkey, Egypt, Bangladesh, Uzbekistan, etc.).
What are some of the specific aspects of regulating nuclear projects? How can we build workforce capacity and improve the system for the integrated management and involvement of industry when implementing projects to build nuclear facilities?
You will be able to discuss these and other questions with the key leaders of nuclear agencies and organizations in Egypt, Zambia, Turkey, Republic of Uzbekistan, Finland, World Nuclear Association and IAEA and they will share their countries’ experiences at The Round Table Session “Building Nuclear Infrastructure as a Key Component for the Sustainability of Nuclear Projects”. It will be held in Russia, Sochi, Main Media Centre in the Blue Auditorium, from 14:30 to 16:30.
The Round Table moderator will be Elina Teplinsky, partner of the American law firm Pillsbury. Mikhail Chudakov, the IAEA’s Deputy Director General and Head of the Department of Nuclear Energy, will deliver the opening speech.
