On Tuesday 24th October, the Ottawa Branch of the Canadian Nuclear Society (CNS) is pleased to host a presentation by Mr. Derek Mullin, Senior Technical Advisor in the Reactor Safety Department at Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station.  

The presentation will discuss the tsunami that adversely impacted the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant; and, the resulting work that was done to consider transatlantic tsunamigenic sources and their potential impact on, or hazard for, Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station given that it is exposed to the Atlantic Ocean.

Join us at this fine venue, greet new colleagues and former colleagues you have not seen for some time, and join in what will undoubtedly be an interesting discussion period.

Both CNS members and non-members are welcome (there is no fee for admission).
