Held at the Rosen Plaza Hotel Orlando

Registration is available on site outside of Ballroom C.

The U.S. nuclear power renaissance has begun with the licensing of Plant Votgle 3&4 and V.C. Summer 2&3. High performance coatings continue to play an important role in the new Gen 3+ plant designs. Regulatory authorities in the U.S. and other countries continue to place emphasis on the proper coating condition assessment and maintenance of safety-related coating systems. The Buried Pipe Initiative in the U.S. is moving from the planning stage to the implementation stage in nuclear power plants. The world-wide nuclear industry has recognized that a robust nuclear safety culture is necessary for safe and reliable operation of commercial nuclear power plants, which includes free and in-depth discussion of plant safety topics such as safety-related coatings.

This symposium brings together industry personnel and coatings professionals to discuss important topics related to protective coatings and linings for commercial nuclear power facilities. Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Buried pipe initiative status
  • Effect of extended power uprate on DBA-qualified coatings
  • Reactor license renewal and DBA-qualified coatings
  • Training and certification of coating program personnel
  • Developing a nuclear power plant safety culture

Why should you attend?

The one-day symposium will focus on current events, new initiatives, technology, and training in nuclear power plant coatings. A range of coatings related topics will be presented to assist the decision making process of the utility power plant personnel responsible for the selection, procurement, application, maintenance, and assessment of the effectiveness of the coatings systems at their plants.

Who should attend?

The symposium will be of interest to individuals involved with the selection, procurement, application, maintenance and assessment of effectiveness of coatings at nuclear power generating facilities. It will be of particular benefit to the following types of individuals associated with coatings or nuclear power plants:

  • Nuclear power plant quality control and assurance managers
  • Qualified coating inspectors (NACE CIPs and CIPs that have completed the Nuclear Facilities Certification Supplement)
  • Inspection firms - qualified inspectors and managers
  • Coating manufacturers sales representatives and technical representatives
  • Architectural engineering firms - personnel involved in coating inspection and evaluation
  • Coating contractors, applicators and project managers
  • Governmental agencies with nuclear power plant oversight
  • Nuclear power plant coatings specialists, engineers, maintenance personnel, quality control and assurance managers
