This is a fantastic event for anyone looking to get into nuclear industry specifically in the discipline of 'lifting'. At the event you will...
Discover engineering solutions to the technical and environmental challenges facing those conducting high risk lifting at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers’ 7th Nuclear Lifting Seminar - the only event of its kind dedicated to lifting projects in the nuclear industry.
Attend this event to explore long term strategies, unique safety cases and cost-effective design that meet regulated standards. Furthermore, understand how best to conduct complex and high risk lifts on decommissioning, operational and new build nuclear sites.
Develop cost effective strategies to ensure your lifting projects are compliant, with input from the industry regulator
Understand the role of asset maintenance and personnel management in a nuclear lifting environment
Hear about how to lift safely in complex and high risk lifting operations within different nuclear environments, including power generation, decommissioning and military
Join interactive panel discussions to share successful strategies for high risk lifting operations
Network with engineering thought leaders in nuclear lifting strategies and safety cases
KEY SPEAKERS INCLUDE:
Russell Green, Nuclear Safety Inspector – Structural Integrity – Operating Facilities, Office for Nuclear Regulation
