I N T R O D U C T I O N 

The 7th edition of our European Nuclear Power Plant Simulation Forum has become the must-attend event in the region for Nuclear Power Plants and everyone involved in the Simulator Industry. The Forum in the beautiful city of Birmingham is the only business conference in Europe for the nuclear industry with the focus on simulators.

 

 It will bring together those who are involved with simulators, training personnel, training managers, operation support managers and anyone with an interest in nuclear power plant simulators or those who develop or use simulation tools for nuclear power plants. This event will give an excellent opportunity for networking, benchmarking and business development with industry peers, contractors, vendors, suppliers and regulators.

 

 The latest technologies, projects, codes, 3D visualization and simulation, strategies and focus points for the present and Nuclear New Build will be presented and demonstrated by an excellent speaker line-up. We are looking forward to meeting you in Birmingham!

Cocktail Reception Sponsor

Due to the Atomic Energy Act and their own sense of responsibility, utilities operating nuclear power plants are obligated to ensure effective, appropriate and practical initial and refresher training for all operators. They share the conviction that the nuclear power plant simulators necessary for this should be run centrally and jointly. This thus ensures that the sum of all skill and experience is available for all nuclear power plants and that the simulator courses are run to common-determined, high standards. The significant synergies the centre brings allow very economical operation.
Furthermore, all experience gleaned from training as well as the construction and operation of simulators can be centrally collected and used.For this purpose, the consortium partners founded the Simulator Centre in Essen-Kupferdreh, which is run by the companies KSG and GfS.
