LONDON, September 12 (Itar-Tass) - Prospects for development of the nuclear power industry are the main topic of the 38th annual conference of the World Nuclear Association (WNA) opening here Thursday.
Representatives of about 700 companies and organizations working in the field in about 30 countries are taking part. The Russian nuclear power sector is represented by the Deputy Director of the State Atomic Energy Corporation (Rosatom), Kirill Komarov.
Officials at Rosatom’s press service told Itar-Tass the agenda of the conference vocers construction of nuclear power facilities, their safe functioning, the handling of spent nuclear fuel and nuclear waste, and the prospects for development of the nuclear industry on the whole.
Rosatom’s leading subsidiaries are represented at the conference, too. Their list includes Atomenergoprom and TVEL, which is a monopoly manufacturer of nuclear fuel assemblies in Russia.
Unified stands will show Rosatom’s position on the world market of nuclear power and a summary of its offers.
Annual conferences of the WNA in London bring together the elite of the global nuclear power community and executives of regulatory agencies. They are invariably the crucial events of the atomic energy sector.
The London symposium will continue through to September 13.
