Local and foreign companies that operate in the nuclear sector will convene in Istanbul tomorrow at the 4th International Nuclear Power Plants Summit, the most extensive nuclear power plant event in Middle East and Africa. The companies will discuss cooperation opportunities in a $600-billion market.
According to a statement released by the Nuclear Engineering Department, some of the countries that supply technology to the nuclear industry, such as, Japan, Germany, France, Britain, Russia and China will look for partnerships at the summit. Moreover, local companies will compete with one another in order to partake in nuclear power plant projects both in Turkey and in the region through B2B meetings.
The summit will also stage consultations regarding commercial collaborations for some 30 nuclear power plant projects that will be completed in Turkey, the Middle East and Africa before 2060.
The developments at the Sinop and Akkuyu nuclear power plant projects will be shared with the participants. A 3D simulation of Sinop nuclear power plant, in which participants will enjoy a virtual-reality representation of the plant, will be offered to the participants. Experts will share opinions on the impacts of nuclear power plants, the security of the plants, waste management, and the fuel cycle.
Detailed information about the two-day summit, which will offer cooperation opportunities for Turkish firms in the nuclear energy, is available on www.nuclearpowerplantssummit.com.
