A European Project: Application of modular construction in nuclear power plant, Moret-Loing-et-Orvanne, France

March, 7, 2023 - March, 8, 2023

An international conference dedicated to a European project focused on construction efficiency of nuclear power plants will take place on the 7 - 8. March 2023 in EDF Lab Les Renardières, Moret-Loing-et-Orvanne, France.

At this Nuclear Power Plant conference, delegates will hear directly from the project team about the experience gained in modelling, design, manufacture, construction, and partial dismantling of a full-scale replica of diesel generator building using a modular form of construction. They will also have the opportunity to visit and inspect the demonstration building.

Whilst the demonstration building is typical of one used on nuclear sites, this form of construction has applications in other sectors as an alternative to reinforced concrete; for example, it has proved very successful for the construction of core walls in high rise buildings.

Peikko is one of the project partners together with The Steel Construction Institute, EDF, CEA, EGIS, Bouygues and ArcelorMittal (Industeel and OCAS). In the conference Peikko will be presenting "Detailings and fabrication of SC modules" and "Logistics (storage requirements, handling, transportation, etc)".

Registration to the conference is open on the Sfen (The French Nuclear Society) web site:
