Canadian Nuclear Society 2015 Conference

Learning, networking and sharing on agenda for delegates at nuclear conference

More than 40 delegates from communities in the site selection process for Adaptive Phased Management (APM), First Nations and Métis communities, and surrounding areas recently attended a learning opportunity at a Canadian Nuclear Society (CNS) conference in Saint John, New Brunswick.  Local representatives included Huron-Kinloss Mayor Mitch Twolan and Administrator Mary Rose Walden.
Designed as a forum for the exchange of views, ideas and information, the conference drew together a broad range of delegates, including community representatives, First Nation and Métis citizens, nuclear industry representatives, independent subject experts, elected government representatives and officials from Canada and other countries. 
Mayor Twolan offered his perspective on the conference. “The conference gave the Township of Huron-Kinloss the opportunity to meet and listen to industry professionals from around the world,” he said.  “We found the conference very informative and beneficial especially meeting all the other communities and First Nations involved in the Learn More Process.”
The NWMO participated in several events at the conference, and led two panel discussions, “International Development in Used Nuclear Fuel Repositories” and “Transportation of Used Nuclear Fuel”.  In keeping with the discussion on transportation, the NWMO had its Used Fuel Transportation Package (UFTP), accompanied by subject experts, for public viewing. 
Chris Hatton, the NWMO’s Director of Nuclear Design and Transportation received the Canadian Nuclear Society’s Innovative Achievement Award, at the conference, for his leading-edge work in developing an engineered barrier system for safely containing and isolating used CANDU fuel over the long term in a geological repository.

CNS Conference

Henry Jacques Neau, Secretary General of the World Nuclear Transport Institute, tours the NWMO’s Used Fuel Transportation Package exhibit at the recent CNS conference in New Brunswick. The package is designed and tested to ensure it will protect the public during normal operations and during accident conditions. It is made of a solid stainless steel box with walls nearly 30 centimetres thick and a lid attached by 32 bolts.
It can withstand severe impact, fire, and immersion in water.
