ECITB Nuclear Project Management Conference 7 September 2016

Following the success of the Offshore Project Management conferences in Aberdeen, the ECITB is pleased to announce the first Nuclear Project Management Conference, entitled ‘Delivering Successful Projects.’

08 July 2016/Categories: Media Centre Events, Press Releases 2016

Event date: 07/09/2016 Export event

The conference will take place on 7 September 2016 at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel in Manchester, commencing at 8.45am. The event will include a main conference and an exhibition.  The event is expected to close at 4.30pm

The aim of the conference is to challenge the industry to define what makes nuclear projects unique and how we can enhance project delivery within the nuclear sector. The conference will be delivered by senior project practitioners from nuclear new build and decommissioning as well as other critical national infrastructure projects.

The event will focus on improved delivery of nuclear projects. It will also provide the opportunity to explore best practice and hear a wide array of speakers give their account of project delivery in highly complex and often highly regulated environments.

Come and hear from industry experts and practitioners, be challenged in interactive workshops and help promote good practice and knowledge sharing of success stories.

Who should attend:

  • CEOs to join the discussion and help improve understanding of best practice from major projects outside of nuclear
  • Programme/Portfolio Managers with an interest in hearing about best practice
  • Project Managers to improve understanding from a practitioner’s perspective
  • Graduates/Apprentices who wish to improve their understanding
  • PMO professionals (Risk Managers, Cost Engineers, Schedulers, Project Controller, etc.) who want to improve their understanding of other sectors and good practice

Places are available at just £75.00. To book your place please click here for details and a booking form. Sponsorship opportunities are also available and can be found here.

Confirmed sessions include:

Sector overview and the challenges ahead

Hear about the state of major projects in the sector from a political perspective - Tom Greatrex CEO, NIA

Gap, What Gap?
The sector tells us there are thousands of FTE shortfall in the near future, but industry provides global resources to cater for needs. The Issue is not how to get the resources, it’s how to ensure sustainability after the peak. This session will focus on the need to look at sustainability not just numbers -  Peter Lutwyche, Chief Operating Officer, NDA

Project management in the Nuclear Industry: can SMR solve the “Over Budget & Delay” nightmare?
Large engineering projects are usually delivered over budget and late and larger projects are more likely to have issues with delivery. In Europe and Asia Nuclear, power plants are usually delivered over budget and late. In South Korea nuclear reactors are delivered on time & budget and have good operational performance. Standardisation plays a key role in the South Korea success. SMR might balance the “diseconomy of scale” with the “economy of multiples.” The delivery of several standardised SMR project might be the key to achieving good project management performances - Giorgio Locatelli, Senior Lecturer, Leeds University
