ACI’s 3rd Nuclear Power Plant Life Management Extension 2017 will be taking place in Antwerp, Belgium, on 06th — 07th December 2017. The two day event will bring together key industry stakeholders from the energy and nuclear industry. This event is going to connect the elite of the industry together to gather and discuss the common issues facing the nuclear industry concerning Plant Life Management and Extension. This event is essential for industry personnel who are working in ageing reactors and need to gain information on how to manage their nuclear plant life effectively.
Taking place on 6th & 7th December 2017 in Antwerp, Belgium the two day conference will bring together key industry personnel from the Energy & Nuclear industry. The event will examine all aspects of plant life management, ageing and plant life extension.
This is the third edition of our informative and captivating event and this year we have focused on the updates of PLIM and PLEX, looking at every aspect in detail to ensure that the industry develops over the coming year. We have found the key elements which need improvement and we have industry speakers who are talented and well informed to speak about the issues and how they can be amended to provide a full and complete understanding to encourage productivity and improve nuclear power plant performance.
