Istanbul to host nuclear power plants summit

ANKARA - Anadolu Agency
Istanbul is preparing to host the Nuclear Power Plants summit for the second time, to run for two days from March 19 at the Grand Cevahir Hotel on the European side of the city.

The Anadolu Agency-sponsored event will give companies, experts and associations active in the nuclear energy sector an opportunity to meet possible investors.

The summit will have eight sessions on various topics including quality control and certification, supply chain management, inspection and nuclear safety. It will also introduce case studies from other emerging nuclear countries, including the United Arab Emirates, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Jordan and Poland.

The first of the sessions will commence with international and Turkish nuclear experts sharing their knowledge and experience with attendees.

Hosting the event is the B2B Matchmaking Society, an organization that brings businesses together for possible cooperation opportunities. The society is involved in the summit to “introduce Turkish companies intending to invest in nuclear projects with experts and know how,” said Koray Tuncer, B2B Matchmaking Society president.

Representatives from the main companies of the two planned nuclear power plants in Turkey are due to attend the event, Tuncer added.
