ORGANIZER(S): International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)
HOST(S): United States Department of Energy (DOE)
Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 14 - 18 May 2012 Location: United States of America (Salt Lake City, Utah) Venue: Hilton Salt Lake City Center
After the severe accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, the safe operation of nuclear power plants has become even more important; not only in terms of technical or ageing issues, but also in terms of management system and qualified workforce related issues. Application of an integrated management system and structured workforce planning are needed throughout the plant life in order to ensure effective plant organization and management.
Nuclear power plant life management (PLiM) has gained increased attention over the past decade, and effective ageing management of systems, structures and components (SSCs) is a key element in PLiM for the safe and reliable long term operation of nuclear power plants. The IAEA organized the first and second International Conference on Nuclear Power Plant Life Management respectively from 4 to 8 November 2002 in Budapest, Hungary, and from 15 to 18 October 2007 in Shanghai, China. Participants at the first and second conferences placed a high value on information exchange and recommended that similar conferences be organized within four to five years. Mindful of the importance of a periodic state of the art information exchange, the IAEA is organizing the third International Conference on Nuclear Power Plant Life Management from 14 to 18 May 2012 in Salt Lake City, USA.
This conference will focus on topical issues affecting PLiM and thus is expected to be of particular interest to staff of utilities, research and design organizations, regulatory bodies, manufacturing and service companies, as well as government decision makers concerned with near, medium and long term energy needs.
