BUSINESS FRANCE UK
france, WNE, Nuclear Event
Launched in response to an initiative by AIFEN, the Association of French Nuclear Industry Exporters, the World Nuclear Exhibition (WNE), the new biennial event, will run from 14 to 16 October of this year at Paris Le Bourget with the aim of allowing participants in a high-added-value industry to meet each other, forge partnerships, find new suppliers or expand their export business.
A SECTOR DESTINED FOR LONG-TERM GROWTH
There are 430 nuclear power plants in operation around the world and new ones being built will result in a 50% increase in nuclear capacity between now and 2025. Such growth, coupled with life extensions and safety improvements for operating plants, fuel cycle, waste processing & storage or the decommissioning of plants at the end of their life, shows just how great WNE’s potential is.
AN EXHIBITION THAT COVERS EVERY LINK IN THE ADDED-VALUE CHAIN OF THE CIVIL NUCLEAR INDUSTRY
The entire industry will be represented from the fuel cycle to waste management, including components, operations, safety, radioprotection, decommissioning, robotics, training, and medical applications.
Over 400 exhibitors have already announced their presence at this October’s WNE with a view to presenting their expertise to over 7,000 professionals from Europe/Russia, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, or America.
The big names include: ALSTOM, ALTRAN, ANDRA, ARCELOR MITTAL, AREVA, ASSYSTEM, BOCCARD, BOUYGUES CONSTRUCTION, BUREAU VERITAS, CEA, COFELY ENDEL, DAHER, DCNS, EDF, GDF SUEZ, LEMER PAX, MITSUBISHI, ONET TECHNOLOGIES, ROBATEL, ROLLS ROYCE, ROSATOM, VALLOUREC, VEOLIA/ASTERALIS, VINCI, WESTINGHOUSE, and ZETEC. And they will be joined by a very large number of SMEs.
AN EQUALLY AMBITIOUS PROGRAMME
Five round tables moderated by the directors of major groups and international experts will be focusing on subjects such as NPP Operation, Safe & Proven Technologies for Reactors and Fuel Cycle, Future Technologies, Dismantling & Waste Management, Training Human Resources for Nuclear Programmes, and Nuclear Technologies for Medical.
Finally, in order to keep everybody informed about what is going on at WNE and to highlight major events such as the signing of contracts and partnership agreements, a show daily, the WNE Tribune, will be distributed, and TV Channel will broadcast proceedings in real time.
Alongside the exhibition, a visitor programme including a number of international events for industry professionals and site visits will mean that WNE is a major fixture in the nuclear industry.
