The Nuclear AMRC and the University of Sheffield’s Energy 2050 are inviting UK companies working in the nuclear decommissioning sector to discover opportunities in one of the world’s largest nuclear nations, South Korea.

With 25 reactors producing a third of electricity, South Korea has long been a leader in nuclear energy. But with its first commercial reactor – Kori-1 – shutting down in 2017, South Korea is preparing to enter a new era of nuclear decommissioning.

The planned 15yr decommissioning programme will require a robust supply chain and rigorous governance. With decades of experience in decommissioning and waste management, UK industry is ideally placed to support South Korea’s upcoming decommissioning challenge.

The Nuclear AMRC invites UK manufacturers and suppliers to discover the opportunities at this one-day seminar. A range of speaker will introduce the South Korean decommissioning market and highlighting opportunities for UK companies.

This event will be twinned with a seminar held in South Korea later this quarter to introduce UK expertise to relevant stakeholders.
