Protecting the Power of Tomorrow
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:
The NACE one-day nuclear coatings symposium will be held in conjunction with the annual meetings for ASTM International's nuclear coatings committees and the Nuclear Utility Coatings Council (NUCC).
The technical program for the three associations will be:
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:
