Nuclear Power Plant Life Management & Extension 2017

Date: 6th December 2017 - 7th December 2017 Location: Antwerp - Belgium

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.

EFINOR Group provides specific solutions for Nuclear Power Plant Life Management and Extension such as a Multiple-Elements Mechanical Plug which has been developed through an innovative process between EFINOR and a utility partner. It is aimed to seal or to bypass fluid in order to perform pressure tests without any structure alteration. This solution has been successfully implemented to shorten key aspect of the maintenance programme of several NPPs. EFINOR is also providing solutions to repair or strengthen key NPPs components and structures supporting life extension and maintaining plants in Operational Condition.

EFINOR Group fosters innovations and invests in design capability and production facilities since 1988. Successful execution of this strategy positioned the Group as a leading partner of large organisations involved in high added-value industries with Nuclear being our initial and still core market. With more than 500 employees and €50 million turnover, EFINOR Group companies are located in France and UK.

Through the combination of our 3 business units: Engineering – Manufacturing – and Support, we are involved in our clients’ Full Project Lifecycle. Specialised in metal working and developing bespoke equipment and solutions for our customers, in the recent years we have been collaborating with Utilities on Nuclear Power Plant Life Management and Extension projects.


A niche consultancy specialising in structural integrity, we address our clients’ requirement to ensure the safe, reliable and profitable operation of their capital plant assets.  We support them by providing technically advanced, practical, cost-effective solutions to the structural integrity questions that arise through equipment life.  Our approach utilises state-of-the-art developments, whilst remaining compatible with established standards and procedures.

The industries we serve include: fossil and nuclear power generation, oil refining, petrochemical and chemical.  Our clients are manufacturers, owners, operators, inspectors and assessors of critical plant equipment, together with insurers, loss-adjusters and legal advisors.  We interact at the corporate or plant level, as appropriate.  In addition, we offer consultancy services in materials performance, technology transfer and training, and litigation and arbitration support.  We participate in innovative research and development programmes, collaborating with industry and academia, and publish regularly.

Our involvement in nuclear plant goes back to 1970 and has included work on most major UK reactor systems – Magnox, AGR, SGHWR, PWR, Fusion – and on fuel storage and transport containers.

NUGENIA is an international association dedicated to the research and development of nuclear fission technologies, with a focus on Generation II and III nuclear plants. It gathers stakeholders from industry, research, safety organisations and academia, committed to develop joint R&D projects in the field.. The work of NUGENIA is organised in six technical areas and two cross-cutting areas, within a general scope defined by the NUGENIA Global Vision published in 2015 and the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda published by SNETP, the European stakeholder forum for nuclear technology.



Nuclear Engineering International is an in-depth technical magazine for the worldwide civil nuclear industry. The magazine offers news, opinion, market reviews, and articles on the front-end fuel cycle, through to operations, maintenance, NDE, ALARA, to Fukushima, decommissioning and radwaste, all at a technical level that is robust whilst remaining accessible to interested industry professionals in all fields.

Original nuclear industry reports are also published: quarterly nuclear electricity generation statistics for the entire world (‘load factors league tables’) and a tabular overview of the installed nuclear fleet in the World Nuclear Industry Handbook, a single volume reference guide that also includes a buyer’s guide, articles and industry contacts. Another highlight is the September fuel issue, with comprehensive fuel market review and fuel data tables.

Since its first issue in 1956, Nuclear Engineering International has been an independent voice in the nuclear industry that goes beyond the news headlines to explain new developments and market trends in technical detail.

Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) contribute up to 45 percent of total employment and up to 33 percent of national income (GDP) in emerging economies*.

The same study suggests there are between 365-445 million micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in emerging markets.

But SMEs face unique challenges, which affect their growth and profitability and hence, diminish their ability to contribute effectively to sustainable development. Despite the big role SMEs play in the economy past statistics indicate that three out of five businesses fail within the first few months of operation. Causes to the failure include limited market access, limited access to information, finances and technology and unfavourable policy and regulatory environment among others**.

Nuclear Business News, “NßN”, based in Fribourg, Switzerland, fills this gap: For more information visit: https://nbn.media/

Elektrownia-jadrowa.pl is a professional web portal, under the patronage of the Ministry of Economy and the National Center for Nuclear Research (Narodowe Centrum Badań Jądrowych) dedicated to the project of construction of nuclear power plant in Poland. Elektrownia-jadrowa.pl was launched in February 2010. It is an independent project whose role is to follow the progress of the construction the first NPP in Poland. The main goals of the portal concern not only informing about the progress of the investment works, legislation or political decisions taken within its frames but also establishing a sort of a platform consisting of institutions and companies taking interest in the venture.  Among the partners of the portal there are: CEZ, AREVA, NCBJ, ProAtom and others.

One of the advantages is its educational value. Dedicated sections not only present the knowledge on nuclear energy, nuclear power plants around the world but also current technologies, safety issues and environmental impact.


ASD Media is an online media company. We provide professionals in dedicated markets with news, intelligence, and interaction opportunities. During the last five years we developed dedicated websites for events, reports, news distribution and source data, and changed the name of the ASD-Network to ASDNews to emphasize the news focus.


Journal of Oil and Gas Research covers various aspects of production of oil and gas and environmental engineering. Biorefinary, Bioremediation and Fractionation are innovative technologies through which it is possible to find and produce energy. Oil and Gas production from subsurface reservoirs of earth is done with the help of drilling, reservoir engineering, oil and gas geology and many other disciplines. Environmental engineering is an application of Science and Engineering integration, which can be used to improve the quality of environmental aspects like air, water, land, etc
