Visit Report: Nuclear Institute and Women in Nuclear Wales Launch

A launch event for the Nuclear Institute and Women in Nuclear Wales branch was held at Bangor University on October 11th. This event was to highlight the new team of the NI and WiN Wales branches with the President of WiN UK and the CEO of the Nuclear Institute also present.

An update of the nuclear events occurring in North Wales included talks on the decommissioning of Magnox reactors, and overview of UK ABWR and the suitability of Trawsfynydd for Small Modular Reactors. This was followed by an excellent panel titled ‘Inspirational Women in Nuclear’ which discussed the difficulties faced by women but also celebrated the achievements of those in senior roles within the nuclear industry. The event closed with workshops on Small Modular Reactors and Inspiring Future Generations.
