UESI Hosted Annual NACE Nuclear Symposium
Globally the nuclear industry understands that a robust nuclear safety culture is necessary for safe and reliable operation of commercial nuclear power plants. An important part of that culture includes understanding how protective coatings play an important role in maintaining this safety. Jon Cavallo of UESI chaired the symposium.
The NACE Nuclear Power Plant Coatings Symposium brings together industry personnel and coatings professionals to discuss important topics related to protective coatings and linings for commercial nuclear power facilities. This year’s topics included:
- Buried pipe initiative status
- Effect of extended power uprate on DBA-qualified coatings
- Reactor license renewal and DBA-qualified coatings
- Training and certification of coating program personnel
- Developing a nuclear power plant safety culture
