DIT nuclear mission to China

24–29 April 2017, Beijing.

Nuclear manufactueres are invited to join a UK delegation to the 12th China International Exhibition on Nuclear Power Industry.

The visit is organised by the UK Department for International Trade (DIT) and China-Britain Business Council (CBBC), working with China General Nuclear Power Corporation (CGN). The visit includes a workshop focusing on supply chain in both China and UK discuss  cooperation opportunities and what the UK can offer to both markets.

The mission will provide UK delegates with the opportunity to be part of the UK Pavilion at the 12th China International Exhibition on Nuclear Power Industry, 27-29 April in Beijing, with exposure to over 8,000 trade visitors. Other activities include a potential site visit, one-to-one meetings with key Chinese nuclear players, and a workshop to further explore potential collaborations in future projects using the Hualong nuclear reactor technology in China, UK and other countries.

South Korea decommissioning forum

Tuesday 21 February, AMRC Knowledge Transfer Centre.

The Nuclear AMRC and Energy 2050 invite you to discover the opportunities for international collaboration in the South Korean nuclear decommissioning programme.

With 25 reactors producing a third of electricity, South Korea has long been a leader in nuclear energy. But with its first commercial reactor – Kori-1 – shutting down in 2017, South Korea is preparing to enter a new era of nuclear decommissioning.

Kori-1

With a wealth of decommissioning experience at home, the UK has the opportunity to support South Korea with its decommissioning and international new-build programmes.

This free half-day event will give UK companies new insight into the decommissioning programmes in both countries, and highlight the opportunities for collaboration and export.

SMR 2017

Monday 27 February, London.

With the UK government due to publish its roadmap for the development of small modular reactors (SMRs), the Nuclear Industry Association invites you to hear the latest from government and industry insiders and make sure you are up to date on the latest developments.

Speakers  include senior figures from SMR developers including Rolls-Royce, Westinghouse, NuScale and Moltex Energy; plus key industry figures including Nuclear AMRC chief executive Mike Tynan on what SMRs could mean for the UK supply chain.

Advanced nuclear manufacturing & materials funding

Thursday 8 December, Birmingham.

Innovate UK and the Knowledge Transfer Network invite you to find out more about accessing £5 million of funding for advanced nuclear manufacturing and materials research.

As part of a £20 million nuclear R&D programme, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) will invest up to £5 million in projects to develop innovative manufacturing and materials technologies for the civil nuclear sector. The competition aims to establish an innovative R&D technologies and skills for materials and manufacturing which will support a strong UK nuclear supply chain.

Cryogenic machining forum

Thursday 1 December 2016, Nuclear AMRC.

The Nuclear AMRC invites you to explore the state of the art in cryogenic and near-cryogenic machining processes for the most demanding industries.

cryo machining

Cryogenic cooling uses extremely cold gas or liquid to control the heat generated during machining. It can improve machining efficiency and increase tool life while minimising the risk of component failure.

Ultracold nitrogen or carbon dioxide can replace conventional oil-based coolants for many applications, and can potentially benefit processes which are usually run dry. They can reduce surface residual stress and thermal damage, and improve surface roughness. They can also reduce the need to clean components during production, reduce waste, and cut the environmental impact of machining.

Discover how innovative research is helping to bring cryogenic processes to market, see them in action on production-scale machines, and find out how your business could benefit from these exciting new technologies.
