Concrete for nuclear structures

31/10/2016 09:00 - 01/11/2016 16:00  


​It is with great pleasure that VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd, under the auspice of the Nordic Concrete Federation, is organizing a Nordic Concrete Research Seminar - CONCRETE FOR NUCLEAR STRUCTURES (NUCCON2016) to be held at Espoo, Finland, from October 31st to November 1st, 2016.

The main objectives of this seminar are to bring professionals from the same field together and promote a scientific dialogue between them, and to contribute to international exchange of knowledge. The Nordic nuclear sector is in active change, with the need to extend the operating service life of existing plants and guaranteeing successful LTO for new builds, not to forget the operation of underground waste repositories and the construction of the HLW repository as well. Concrete plays a key role in this sector providing the necessary supporting infrastructure for successful, long-term operation. Read more from the seminar brochure
