Posted on 4 Jan 2010 by The Manufacturer

Industry leaders and expert advisors are set to attend the Nuclear New Build Conference at London’s Charing Cross Hotel on January 26 and 27.

The annual industry event, organised by think tank C5, brings together regulators, energy companies, supply chain members and site licence holders plus leading consultants and legal advisors.

Major industry players such as Westinghouse UK, EDF Energy, Fluor, Amec, Mott Macdonald, AON, Areva and Atkins Global will be joined by Ed Miliband MP, Secretary of State for Energy & Climate Change, who will present the opening keynote address.

Sheffield Forgemasters chief executive Graham Honeyman is among speakers at the conference which will tackle the hottest legal, regulatory and contractual issues for the UK supply chain.

“This is a crucial time for supply chain members and other stakeholders looking to get involved in civil nuclear new build,” says Dr Honeyman. “Forgemasters has a key role to play in providing expert knowledge, strategic insight and quality components for current and future civil nuclear power projects, and also advice at this critical juncture for UK new build.”

As well as industry leaders and expert advisors, delegates will include top regulators and Government representatives including the DECC, Nuclear Liabilities Financing Assurance Board, IAEA, Nuclear Installations Inspectorate, Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and Environment Agency.
