A total of approxiamately 90 UK companies came together at the “Business Opportunities for UK plc from Fusion & ITER” one-day event organised by the UK Atomic Energy Authority and the Central England Branch of the Nuclear Institute at Culham Science Centre.
Representatives from F4E were on hand to explain the procurement process and procurement opportunities that are arising from the construction of ITER in terms of engineering expertise. Additional F4E presentations focused on technical requirements for the ITER machine, in particular remote handling, projects related to buildings and infrastructure on the ITER site, as well as the Neutral Beam and electron cyclotron power sources. In order to establish a more personal, interactive contact, UK companies were also given the opportunity to have 1:1 meetings with F4E’s Business Intelligence staff in order to clarify questions and gain further understanding.
Feedback from event participants and co-hosts was positive and the event was deemed successful.
