The long-term operation of existing nuclear power plants (NPP) has already been accepted in many countries as a strategic objective to ensure adequate supply of electricity over the coming decades. In this context, the effective maintenance of nuclear power plants is essential for their safe long-term operation and guarantees the level of reliability and effectiveness of all safety-relevant components and systems in accordance with their design assumptions.
ADVISE and NOMAD are two European initiatives co-funded by the Euratom research and training programme 2014-2018 under the same NFRP-01-2016 call: “Continually improving safety and reliability of Generation II and III reactors”. They fulfil requirements for nuclear safety research in the framework of assessment of long-term operation and deal with the materials characterization of components of ageing existing nuclear power plants. ADVISE and NOMAD focus on complementary topics related to non-destructive evaluation of safety-relevant components.
Additionally, successful networking is an important prerequisite for exchanging know-how with other consortia working on similar research topics, to define interaction schemes as well as to initiate further successful international cooperation and to achieve qualitatively and quantitatively high-quality cooperation.
In this context, the ADVISE and NOMAD consortia will co-organise the:
European Symposium on NON-DESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION for NPP
on 4-5 May 2021
This 2-day event will take place virtually and bring together both projects, as well as a number of other initiatives and will cover NDE topics with respect to relevant materials, operation conditions and components of European NPPs for a comprehensive workshop on NDE issues for long-term operation of plants.
Experts working on international, European or national initiatives and stakeholders are expected to ensure an ideal uptake of the newly identified knowledge, an optimal know-how exchange and nevertheless to identify and define further opportunities and strategies for future cooperation on the topic of NDE for safety-relevant components of NPPs.
