Advanced Nuclear Manufacturing

Date: 18th May 2015 - 20th May 2015 Location: Pocatello - Idaho - USA

A three-day national conference focusing on the U.S. nuclear energy supply chain with information to establish new relationships, enhance business strategies, identify new technologies and drive new business opportunities. Featuring compelling speakers and panelists from across the nuclear energy supply chain.

Manufacturing Innovation in the Advanced Nuclear Manufacturing

As the nuclear supply, design and construction industry ramps up its efforts to build the new generation of reactors and facilities, the challenges of logistical operation and manufacturing are being addressed in new and innovative ways. The latest designs for nuclear power generation offer vast benefits and solutions to address the problem of growing electricity demand from the U.S. energy grid, and planning a comprehensive and cohesive strategy is an integral part of ensuring the success of these new projects. This conference seeks to bring together industry experts, manufacturers, scientists, engineers, nuclear futurists and operators in a comprehensive examination, exploration and discussion of the current state of nuclear power, from financing and policy to maintenance and operation.

Featuring an Exclusive Tour of the Idaho National Laboratory

The Idaho National Laboratory (INL) stands out as a distinctly capable science and technology resource. Notably, the lab serves as the nation’s command center for advanced nuclear energy research, development, demonstration and deployment, and is home to the unparalleled Advanced Test Reactor and allied post-irradiation examination, fuel fabrication and materials testing and development assets. Leveraging these and numerous other distinguishing features, the lab and its more than 3,900 scientists, engineers and support personnel build on the potential and promise of the theoretical for the benefit of the real world.

Featuring a Tour of the Idaho Accelerator Center

The Idaho Accelerator Center (IAC)is a unique research facility operated by Idaho State University located in southeast Idaho. The Center has three laboratories: on the university campus, in the University’s Business and Research Park and at the Pocatello Airport. It provides opportunities for scientists and engineers from the University, the private sector and the national laboratories to utilize specialized nuclear facilities. It serves as a principal investigating conduit for R&D in nuclear physics applications in materials science, biology, homeland and national security.
