According to the World Nuclear Association, at least 130 new nuclear reactors will be built by 2030. In May 2007, 30 new nuclear reactors were under construction throughout the world. The greatest amount of new capacity is being built in India and in Russia. In France, the nuclear fleet is due to be gradually renewed in the 2020s. The third generation of nuclear reactor technology is under construction at Olkiluoto and at Flamanville. Many other industrialized countries have developed a new interest in nuclear energy too. In the UK alone, the nuclear industry is worth in excess of Â£20billion and the delivery of a new fleet of nuclear power plants in the UK by 2018 will only be a reality if the right construction choices are made.
VIBeventâ€™s inaugural conference â€œNuclear Build Construction Challenges 2009â€ has been designed to address the main issues associated with the construction of the next nuclear power generation by bringing together architects/designers/engineers and key nuclear industry players on an unique platform.
For the first time, global construction and nuclear industry key players will be able to meet, network, debate, share best practices and discuss the lessons learnt from current and previous projects.
