Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) and Canadian Nuclear Society (CNS) are hosting the 2nd International Technical Meeting on Small Reactors. There is growing international interest and activity in the development of small nuclear reactor technology. This meeting will provide participants with an opportunity to share ideas and exchange information on new developments.
This Technical Meeting will cover topics of interest to designers, operators, researchers and analysts involved in the design, development and deployment of small reactors for power generation and research. A special session is planned to focus on small modular reactors (SMR) for generating electricity and process heat, particularly in small grids and remote locations. On the last day of the Technical Meeting (November 9), AECL will host a tour of the Chalk River Laboratories for all interested attendees. The tour will include the ZED-2 and NRU reactors.
Following the success of the first Technical Meeting in November 2010, which captured numerous accomplishments of low-power critical facilities and small reactors, the second Technical Meeting is dedicated to the achievements, capabilities, and future prospects of small reactors. This meeting also celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Nuclear Power Demonstration (NPD) reactor which was the first small reactor (20 MWe) to generate electricity in Canada.
Please note that the Chalk River Tour is now full, and cannot take any more registrations.
