Sheffield Forgemasters International Limited (SFIL) will join fellow industry leaders and expert advisors at a national conference on nuclear power provision.
SFIL chief executive Graham Honeyman is among speakers at the second UK Nuclear New Build Conference which will tackle the hottest legal, regulatory and contractual issues for the UK supply chain.
The annual industry event, organised by C5, brings together regulators, energy companies, supply chain members and site licence holders plus leading consultants and legal advisors.
Major industry players and SFIL customers such as Westinghouse UK, EDF Energy, Fluor, Amec, Mott Macdonald, AON, Areva and Atkins Global will be joined by Malcolm Wicks MP, Prime Minister's Special Representative on International Energy Issues; former Minister of State for Energy who will give the opening address at the conference at London's Charing Cross Hotel on January 26-27.
Dr Honeyman said: "This is a crucial time for supply chain members and other stakeholders looking to get involved in civil nuclear new build.
"Forgemasters has a key role to play in providing expert knowledge, strategic insight and quality components for current and future civil nuclear power projects, and also advice at this critical juncture for UK new build."
As well as industry leaders and expert advisors, delegates will include top regulators and Government representatives including the DECC, Nuclear Liabilities Financing Assurance Board, IAEA, Nuclear Installations Inspectorate, Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and Environment Agency.
SFIL's attendance at the conference underpins its growing presence as a supplier of specialist safety-critical components to the global nuclear power market.
