NEA Workshop on Advanced Construction and Manufacturing Methodologies for New Nuclear Build
The construction phase of a nuclear power plant project is when project risks are most acute, becoming a key determinant of the project’s overall economic and financial performance. Following an extended period without nuclear construction projects, recent first-of-a-kind (FOAK) projects in NEA member countries have faced difficulties delivering on time and on budget. At the same time, these projects have served to renew industrial capabilities, as well as to explore new approaches to construction and manufacturing techniques. Future nuclear projects will continue the learning process, allowing for design improvements and process optimisation, paving the way towards Nth-of-a-kind (NOAK) projects with lower costs and reduced construction risks. In parallel, smaller, more modular and innovative designs are emerging that could offer additional advantages in the construction of new nuclear power plants through a new set of techniques that are not available in traditional large reactor projects.
The NEA workshop on Advanced Construction and Manufacturing Methodologies for New Nuclear Build will explore recent experiences and the development of construction and manufacturing techniques. The focus will be on near-term advances in nuclear construction, while also providing some indication of future, more long-term improvements that could be made on the basis of design innovations. Finally, workshop participants will also examine the role of regulators as well as codes and standards organisations to facilitate a wider adoption of advanced construction and manufacturing methodologies.
