World Nuclear New Build Congress | События

Тип события: 

The World Nuclear New Build Congress (UK) 2014 will be held on September 15-17th, 2014 in London, UK. The Organizing Committee cordially invites you to come and actively participate in this intriguing event.

The UK has 16 reactors (totaling 10 GWe capacity) generating about 18% of its electricity and all but one of these will be retired by 2023. The government aims to have 16 GWe (£50 billion) of new nuclear capacity on line by 2025, with the aim of the first new nuclear power station (on current timetables) starting operations in 2019. Among the whole capacity building programme, EDF Energy aims to develop 6.4GWe at Hinkley Point and Sizewell, Horizon Nuclear Power targets for 6 GWe at Wylfa and Oldbury, and NuGen. goes for 3.6 GWe at Sellafield.

In March 2013, the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change granted a development consent order to EDF Energy to build and operate Hinkley Point C and associated development. This Hinkley Point C project will be the first new nuclear plant built in UK after 1995. The preparation of Wylfa Newydd is also on track and the Generic Design Assessment for Hitachi’s ABWR is expected to be completed in 2016. In December 2013, Toshiba’s purchase of 50% share will rejuvenate the Moorside project at Sellafield. EDF Energy Sizewell C project is also in the process of public consultation.

At the global level, there are quite a many good practices in nuclear new build, such as in UAE, In Turkey and in China. On the other hand, there are also lessons and experiences can be learnt, such as the Fukushima accident.

In the newcomers, their nuclear new build programmes are also flourished by strong government supports. In Turkey, following Rosatom's $20bn Build-Own-Operate contract for the AKKUYU NPP, a $22 billion contract has been awarded to a Japanese-French consortium to build Turkey's second nuclear power plant at Sinop on the Black Sea coast. According to Presidential Decree Five in 2006, Indonesia should have four nuclear-power plants built by 2025. Their total capacity will be at least 4,000 MW of electricity, about 1.96 percent of projected electricity demand in 2025. South Africa is with firm plans for further 9600 MWe in the next decade, generating 23% of its electricity. The active actions also have been taken in Bangladesh and Norway.

The nuclear developer countries also have the plans to build new nuclear power plants, such in Sweden, Argentina, Canada, and Iran.
