HPC Supplier Induction Programme

HPC Supplier Induction Programme

  • Somerset Energy Innovation Centre, (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Ready to target Hinkley Point C (HPC) supplier opportunities?

Most suited to companies who are certain that supplying Hinkley Point C (HPC) is right for them, this comprehensive programme was developed with the support of EDF Energy and is delivered by nuclear sector experts to help you implement and work to the strict nuclear standards demanded of HPC suppliers.

As the first nuclear power station to be built in a generation, HPC also adopts the latest best practice techniques. Therefore companies wishing to be involved need to understand a number of customer specific requirements to support the successful delivery of the project.

For ambitious, innovative companies who can help reduce costs and improve lead time and safety, the project offers significant contract opportunities throughout its 10-year construction and beyond.  Each company has something unique to bring to the project, but needs to understand how to translate their existing capability to fit customer requirements.

Safety is the number one concern, and the expectations and standards required for achieving nuclear excellence are higher than ever on this project.  It is vital to EDF Energy and their primary contractors that this is understood and implemented at every level of the supply chain to deliver the project on time and on budget.

To address this issue, Exelin have worked with EDF Energy to develop the HPC Supplier Induction Programme, designed to help companies bridge gaps in their knowledge and prepare to support their potential HPC customers.

80% of previous delegates are either bidding or have already won work at HPC!

Hinkley Point C Supplier Induction Programme - January 2019

  • Somerset Energy Innovation Centre (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Ready to target Hinkley Point C supplier opportunities? Most suited to companies who are certain that supplying Hinkley Point C (HPC) is right for them, this comprehensive programme was developed with the support of EDF Energy and is delivered by nuclear sector experts to help you implement and work to the strict nuclear standards demanded of HPC suppliers.

As the first nuclear power station to be built in a generation, HPC also adopts the latest best practice techniques. Therefore companies wishing to be involved need to understand a number of customer specific requirements to support the successful delivery of the project.

For ambitious, innovative companies who can help reduce costs and improve lead time and safety, the project offers significant contract opportunities throughout its 10-year construction and beyond.  Each company has something unique to bring to the project, but needs to understand how to translate their existing capability to fit customer requirements.

To address this issue, Exelin have worked with EDF Energy to develop the HPC Supplier Induction Programme, designed to help companies bridge gaps in their knowledge and prepare to support their potential HPC customers.

ZEPT ICOND: INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON NUCLEAR DECOMMISSIONING

Organised by: ICOND

Venue: Eurogress Aachen • Monheimsallee 48 • 52062 Aachen • Germany

Website link

The leading decommissioning conference in the EU with keynote speaker Dr. Guido Knott, CEO PreussenElekra. More than 300 international participants and an accompanying company and tecnology exhibition.

The closure and decommissioning of nuclear power plants, particularly power reactors, present high demands regarding planning and authorization to all parties involved. In the ongoing decade several nuclear power plants will be shut down due to their operating life and political decisions, not only in Europe, but also worldwide. As a result, optimized decommissioning strategies will need  to be well-coordinated among all participants.

The ICOND focuses on the relevant legal parameters in Germany and compares decommissioning strategies worldwide. This includes roles of authorization, financial planning, and change management in the transition from nuclear power plant to decommissioned project. Furthermore the different options for interim storage and disposal of radioactive waste are discussed.

ICOND addresses operators of nuclear plants and companies who are working on the planning, implementation and supervision of decommissioning projects; authorities and technical experts whose focus includes the approval and supervisions procedure of decommissioning projects; and research institutions, which are responsible for the dismantling of research reactors and the storage and/or disposal of radioactive hazardous waste.

ICOND will enable participants to proficiently discuss the challenges of the decommissioning of nuclear plants in a practical way, and to define optimal planning variants for decommissioning implementation. Simultaneous translation (German/English/Russian) will be available.
