17 September 2019, AMRC Knowledge Transfer Centre.
The Nuclear AMRC and Wood invite you to explore the latest research into materials and manufacturing technologies for the next generation of nuclear power.
The Mattear project (Materials & Manufacturing Technology Evaluation for Advanced Reactors) is a research collaboration to develop manufacturing technologies for the next generation of nuclear power, led by Wood as part of the government-funded Nuclear Innovation Programme.
Mattear focuses on four key technologies: electron beam welding, dissimilar metal joining, hot isostatic pressing, and additive manufacturing.
This industry-focused event will explore these technologies, with speakers from industry and research institutions presenting the latest innovations and discussing applications.
Find out more about the manufacturing challenges and emerging opportunities in the supply chain for advanced reactors, learn about the latest government support on offer for companies in the nuclear sector, and discover how your company can take advantage of the innovative manufacturing and materials technologies being developed by the Mattear project.

29 October 2019, Sheffield.
Following the success of last year’s Nuclear Decommissioning Showcase, the Energy Industries Council (EIC) are pleased to launch the Cross-Sector Decommissioning Showcase.
The one-day event is hosted at the Advanced Manufacturing Park Technology Centre, and will include presentations from Atkins, Sellafield Ltd, Wood, Xodus Group and the Nuclear AMRC.
The decommissioning industry forms a vital component of the global energy industry and supply chain. In the UK alone, the offshore oil and gas decommissioning sector will be worth around £15 billion over the next decade within the UK continental shelf. Globally, this figure increases to over £64 billion over the next 10 years.
In the nuclear sector, Europe is set to become the world’s largest nuclear decommissioning market by the middle of the next decade, with over half of the region’s 223 reactors scheduled to close. And decommissioning strategies for the wind industry continue to develop.
This showcase will focus on the key energy markets of the decommissioning industry, highlighting specific new business opportunities in the oil & gas, nuclear and wind sectors. This event will also draw attention to cross-sector themes between the industries that can provide synergy such as regulations, skills, collaboration and technology transfer.

26 September, Leeds.
TotalDecom presents a supply chain event focusing on smart solutions for smart decommissioning and demolition. Whether decommissioning a power station, chemical process or pharmaceutical site, or oil & gas platform, these models can ensure a safe, effective and environmentally sound project, helping eliminate risks at every stage.
The event will also look at emerging technologies to make these hazardous environments safer for the on-site engineers and the wider environment, and offer an industry exhibition, networking and one-to-one sessions with key players in the decommissioning market.

10 September, Manchester.
The flagship event from the Energy Industries Council (EIC) brings together the supply chain with key decision makers from global power, nuclear and renewables companies.
The event combines supply chain briefings, panel sessions and one-to-one meetings with key global developers and contractors looking to do business with the UK supply chain.
Nuclear AMRC CEO Andrew Storer will lead a panel discussion on the future of nuclear new build, with speakers from EDF Energy, Wood, the Nuclear Industry Association and more.
