Wales Nuclear Forum and Organization of Canadian Nuclear Industries sign Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) of collaboration after four-day digital trade mission

The Organization of Canadian Nuclear Industries (OCNI) and the Wales Nuclear Forum (WNF) are pleased to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Friday, January 29, 2021 at the conclusion of a very successful four-day Wales-Canada Digital Trade Mission.

As part of the Wales-Canada Nuclear Digital Trade Mission, the Nuclear Futures Institute at Bangor University is delighted to highlight their partnership and growing links with the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of New Brunswick (UNB) in Canada.

This builds on a letter of intent signed March 2020 (see photo, Marcus Dahlfors top right) between Bangor University and UNB to collaborate in development of Small Modular and Advanced Modular Reactors and Advanced Fuels.

The trade mission discussed a variety of nuclear topics including construction, reactor life extension, decommissioning, SMR development and medical isotopes.

Next steps in the Welsh-Canadian nuclear collaboration will see a team of Canadian nuclear suppliers visiting Wales, in person or digitally, in late 2021 or early 2022 to learn more about decommissioning opportunities at Trawsfynydd and to facilitate collaboration on medical isotopes, SMR deployment and other nuclear product innovations.
