26 October 2016

From 9-13 October 2016, U-Battery exhibited at the European Nuclear Conference (ENC) in Warsaw, Poland. The international conference welcomed delegates from across the nuclear industry and provided an opportunity for scientists, nuclear industry representatives and policy makers to discuss ideas and innovations that will drive the technological developments of the future.

During their visit, members of the U-Battery team met with Jonathan Knott, British Ambassador to Poland, to discuss further the opportunity for the deployment of U-Battery and the potential for U-Battery in the Polish market.

Steve Threlfall, General Manager, U-Battery and Urenco, comments:

“At the ENC we met with an interested audience about the potential of U-Battery. We welcomed the opportunity to meet with Jonathan Knott and discuss the potential for U-Battery to be deployed in Poland and for High Temperature Gas Reactors to support energy intensive industries.”

From 18-19 October, U-Battery exhibited at Nuclear Energy Insider’s Small Modular Reactor UK Summit in London, England.

Steve Threlfall was one of the industry experts who contributed to the session: SMR’s for the UK Market: The Business Case. During his presentation, Steve addressed the global market opportunity for micro-modular reactor technology, the latest international market interest in U-Battery, the prospects for UK Plc and the next steps for the business.

Steve comments:

“The SMR UK Summit provided a valuable platform to engage with others working within the SMR market and discuss the opportunities, challenges and innovations for the future of nuclear energy.”
