WNE, October 2014, the global nuclear industry meets at the Bourget
May 05, 2014
Created at the initiative of the Association of French Nuclear Exporter Industries (AIFEN, Association des industriels français exportateurs du nucléaire), WNE , a new international biennial event, will be held from October 14 to 16, 2014 at Paris Le Bourget, giving players in this high added-value industry the opportunity to talk, find partners, look for new suppliers or develop their export business.
The challenges are clear – 430 power plants in operation worldwide, new builds generating a 50% increase in nuclear generating capacity by 2025, life extensions and improved power plant operating safety, used fuel treatment, waste disposal and post-operational power plant dismantling – and point to the development potential of the nuclear industry.
More than 400 industrial companies, including AREVA, have already indicated that they will be at Le Bourget from October 14 to 16 to exhibit their know-how, and more than 6,000 international industrial visitors are expected to discover – or rediscover – the world of nuclear power.
