For the first time in 2018, WNE hold 2 lunch debates dedicated to:
Small Modular Reactors
and Advanced Reactors, Gen IV & beyond.

A simple concept: 90 minutes, 7 speakers, 3min each to answer 5 challening questions.

SMR – Small Modular Reactors – are being developed to pursue economy of scale and more flexibility in the building and the operation of nuclear reactors, but these technologies still raise a lot of questions.

How competitive will these reactors be in terms of electricity production, how will company deal with the modular design and the prefabrication of components?

You couldn't attend the debate on WNE?

Listen now to Tom Mundy of Nuscale, Bernard Salha of EDF, Alan Woods of Rolls Royce, Anton Moskvin of Rosatom, Song Danrong of CNNC, Jae-Seung of Song Smart/KAERI and David Powell of Hitachi GE address all these questions about their technologies!

The Generation IV reactors - 6 designs aimed to surpass current designs in sustainability, economics, safety, and reliability and... - are shaping the future of the nuclear industry. Their promises, their challenges, their deployment schedule were addressed during this exiting debate between their world renewed executives.

What are the breakthrough and advantages of these designs, what challenges do they bring to the supply chain and how are they financed?

Discover how Bernard Bigot of ITER, Rory O’Sullivan of Moltex Energy, Simon Irish of Terrestrial Energy, Jeffrey C. Harper of X Energy and François Gauché of CEA, Troels Schönfeldt of Seaborg and Vyacheslav Pershukov of Rosatom defended their Advanced Reactors Gen IV & beyond on WNE 2018.
