Nuclear South West Conference 2019

Nuclear South West Showcase 2019

This event is a unique chance to connect with existing opportunities in the UK nuclear sector, showcase your capabilities to potential customers and learn about the future direction of nuclear in the UK

There continues to be huge opportunities for UK and international companies that want to be part of the UK nuclear supply chain, many of which are located in the South West of England. This includes the UK’s first new build in a generation, Hinkley Point C, which is entering the MEH phase; 4 sites being decommissioned; submarine decommissioning, as well as the development of new technologies for small modular reactors.

With a theme of ‘Bringing Innovation to Nuclear’, this two-day showcase and conference highlights current and future opportunities in New Build, Decommissioning, Defence and new technologies, including SMRs.

Other highlights include the opportunity to network with senior industry representatives and engage in 1-2-1 meetings with companies across the different supply chains.


Registration is now open with various options for attendance at the constituent parts of the event. See the Eventbrite page for full details.
