SUPPORTING BEST PRACTICE WITH NUCLEAR SECTOR ASSET MANAGEMENT; RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

Posted by Hazel Duhy on

Asset management is focussed on the whole life management of assets. Along with the NDA the nuclear regulators consider lifecycle asset management to be crucial to ensuring the right investment decisions are made to manage risks (both threats and opportunities) to people and the environment, ensuring the best use of resources. This has been of particular interest since the release of ISO55001 setting out expected standards for asset management.

The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and the Environment Agency are holding a 2 day workshophosted by Strathclyde University’s Advance Nuclear Research Centre in Glasgow. The aim of the workshop is to convey the values and expectations to be achieved by asset management, to review best practice with examples from nuclear and non-nuclear industry and to present current research on asset management being undertaken. Taking into account sector risks we will discuss and action longer term research priorities that will meet the expectations of all stakeholders. We currently have guest speakers covering topics such as:

- The journey to ISO55000: The experience of the Environment agency to achieve ISO accreditation - Remote asset integrity management
- Future asset management for Nuclear Fusion

This is request for submission of abstracts for the workshop on to be held on March 19 /20 2019. We are asking industry, universities and research establishments to present current work and research in the field of lifecycle asset management and to attend the workshop to discuss and action future research and development proposals.

Please submit your abstracts to Sophie Gallagher at the Environment Agency via email by the extended deadline of the 21st December 2018. (Maximum one A4 page and written in English). Abstract will be reviewed by the Environment Agency and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and notification of acceptance will be sent in January 2019 with instructions for preparation of presentations.
