News releases 2017

Speakers from Atkins will discuss a range of topics of importance to the global nuclear industry at the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) International Low Level Waste Conference from 19 to 22 June in Charlotte, NC.

Tim Milner, chief technology officer, will discuss advances in radioactive liquid waste processing, with a particular focus on the transformational technologies that are emerging from Atkins’ own research and development programme that will deliver significant process efficiencies to the industry in the field of processing radioactive liquid waste.

Edwina Winter, senior vice president in Atkins’ Asia-Pacific business, will discuss the development of a successful business model to serve the rapidly expanding nuclear new build industry in China, where Atkins has been working for over a decade. This presentation shows how the driving force of innovation from western companies combined with the delivery expertise of Chinese state owned enterprises and the private sector is helping to develop a successful and sustainable business model for China that positions for future growth and export globally.

Scott Poole, engineering director, will look at the application of modular design principles and remote operation techniques and philosophies which can be used within the bounds of current, reliable technologies and without driving project and operations costs above reasonable expectations.

Atkins has worked on some of the world’s most challenging nuclear projects, from nuclear new build projects, to life extension and operations, and decommissioning across the UK and Europe, United Arab Emirates (UAE), China, Japan, Canada and the USA.
