The climate crisis is driving significant change throughout the process industries, and the nuclear industry – which will play a key role in the transition to a low-carbon future – is no exception. On the positive side, the digital transformation of the process industries and rapidly-maturing digital technologies available to engineers and scientists bring new ways to respond rapidly to the many challenges.
In particular, digital design approaches are accelerating process innovation and helping to optimize safe process design, through the ability to explore the decision space rapidly and effectively and quantify and manage risk. Similarly, digital operations applications that apply deep process knowledge online in conjunction with plant data now enable the rigorous monitoring and real-time optimization of process operations, as well as providing high-value decision support tools for operators.
This seminar will focus on the way that digital technologies are being applied within the nuclear and nuclear decommissioning industry to accelerate innovation, reduce risk and ultimately create value.
Who should attend
The seminar is aimed at bringing together managers and senior technologists with an interest in the application of modelling to address complex challenges in the nuclear industry.
