  • International gathering in USA will hear about benefits from technical innovation, collaboration and More 4 Less
  • Visit Amec Foster Wheeler in booth 417 at WM2016

Amec Foster Wheeler announces today that it will be outlining its approach to nuclear decommissioning at an international conference next week.

The WM2016 Symposia in Phoenix, Arizona, will hear how technical innovation, stronger collaboration, and the company’s More 4 Less methodology are making the delivery of clean-up projects more effective.

The market for dealing with power plant closures and managing radioactive waste is expected to be worth more than $100 billion over the next 15 years.

During that period:

  • More than 200 nuclear reactors are due to shut down;
  • Tens of millions of cubic metres of low and intermediate level waste must be safely managed; and
  • There is a need to complete the nuclear cycle by putting in place a long-term solution for hundreds of thousands of cubic metres of high-level waste.
Tom Jones, Vice President for Strategy and Business Development of Amec Foster Wheeler’s Clean Energy business, said:

“This is a global challenge and a global opportunity. Amec Foster Wheeler’s approach to seizing this opportunity is based on technical innovation, stronger collaboration and the More 4 Less methodology of delivering more work for less cost without compromising on safety.

 “We have more than 4,000 nuclear specialists, engineers and project managers around the world and the depth and breadth of our experience enables us to create a flexible and commercial model for meeting customers’ challenges.

“Waste management and decommissioning are not a distressed purchase. They are an investment in our future safety and security.”

Amec Foster Wheeler will be exhibiting on booth 417 on the main show floor and on stand 836 in the UK pavilion. The UK is the featured country at WM2016 this year

Several senior people will be presenting and taking part in panel discussions. Tom Jones will be presenting on ‘Nuclear Waste – a global challenge’ as part of the opening plenary session on Monday, March 6 in room 301CD.

Tom will also be taking part in a panel session on nuclear decommissioning in the UK as part of session 3 on Monday, March 7 in room 105AB. This will cover UK government policy, legacy challenges and the role of the regulator. Other panellists will include John Clarke, Chief Executive of the UK’s Nuclear Decommissioning Authority; René McTaggart, Head of Policy for Nuclear Safety and Radioactive Waste Management, Department of Energy and Climate Change; and Mina Golshan, Deputy Chief Nuclear Inspector, Office of Nuclear Regulation.
