Already exceeding expectations with delegate numbers up 96% on last year, the two-day, double tracked agenda has attracted attendees from the likes of SONGS, Rosatom, Xcel Energy, Korea Hydro Nuclear Power Co., Westinghouse, Bechtel, NAC International, AECL, EnergySolutions and many more.

The news comes as organizer Nuclear Energy Insider announces a raft of exciting developments to the program for its Nuclear Decommissioning and Used Fuel Strategy Summit (1-2 October).

David Jones, Senior Vice President – Back End Business Group at AREVA, has now been confirmed as the keynote representative for AREVA, Gold Sponsor of the conference, promising to share exclusive industry updates and a preview into its forward decommissioning and used fuel strategies.

Meanwhile, both GE Hitachi and AMEC recently confirmed their support for the meeting by joining as Silver and Bronze Sponsors respectively. GE Hitachi will add an in-depth insight into its decommissioning activities whilst AMEC will share expertise on safely closing Department of Energy facilities.

Perspectives on international markets will be boosted by the participation of delegations from countries such as Russia, Korea, Brazil, South Africa, the UK, Lichtenstein and more.

For many, the program highlight will be the Exelon hosted utility panel session, ‘Decommissioning Overview – Nuclear Power Plant Decommissioning and Associated Challenges’. Joined by Entergy (Vermont Yankee), Dominion (Kewaunee), ZionSolutions (Zion) and Yankee Atomic Electric Company, the audience is set to receive a one off chance to hear utility perspectives, challenges and forward plans for NPPs from across the nuclear landscape.

“The full participation of so many utilities, regulators and major contractors really confirms the Summit as an unmissable event in the industry’s calendar,” said Siobhan O’Meara, Project Director for Nuclear Energy Insider.
