Helium-3 to be produced from tritium stored at Canada’s Darlington station
Laurentis Energy Partners, a subsidiary of Ontario Power Generation (OPG), has launched a new program to produce helium-3. The He-3 will be obtained from tritium stored at OPG’s Darlington nuclear power plant, a four-unit CANDU station located about 100 kilometers east of Toronto.
Darlington houses one of the world’s largest reserves of tritium, which is a by-product of the heavy water used in CANDU reactors.
17th International ANS Conference on Probabilistic Safety Assessment and Analysis 2021 (PSA21)
Columbus Hilton Downtown Columbus, Ohio, USA
Since 1978, the ANS biennial topical conference on Probabilistic Safety Assessment has been a forum for communication of major probabilistic risk and safety topics worldwide, including issues, methods, applications, insights, policy, research, and risk-informed regulation experience. PSA21 will be of interest to those working in traditional applications including nuclear reactor facilities, nonreactor installations, processing, decontamination & decommissioning, storage, as well as other nontraditional areas where probabilistic safety approaches are applied. Topics of discussion are anticipated to include advanced and small modular reactor (SMR), Fukushima Daiichi, advanced reactor, multi-unit and full site PSA, the human interface and HRA, reliability of systems/structures/components, waste cleanup, natural phenomena, security, dry storage and fire risk, as well as many others. The role of probabilistic methods in understanding uncertainties and improving the safety and security of nuclear facilities, and activities will be highlighted.
PSA 2019 is attended by decision-makers, regulators, project managers, business sector, scientists, engineers, students and educators from throughout the world who are engaged in one or more topical areas associated with PSA. By selecting this conference, you will have the opportunity to network with leaders in the probabilistic and nuclear safety assessment field, as well as discuss your products, services, and organization.
Around 300 probabilistic and nuclear safety analysts, engineers, educators, regulators, government officials, consultants and policy-makers from around the world attend the PSA series of technical exchange and networking conferences. With over two hundred oral and poster presentations, coupled with one-of-a-kind panel sessions scheduled over a six-day period, you cannot afford to miss this unique chance to showcase your organization.
Major industry, government and consulting organizations, and university departments that are actively engaged in the nuclear safety field will be present at PSA21. Attendees from the U.S. and approximately 20 other nations will be in Columbus, Ohio for PSA21.
Your organization has a unique opportunity to showcase your brand in terms of products and services related to nuclear facility safety, consulting and analytical services, software applications, and related, science and technology, especially those that make a strategic difference in risk-informing nuclear processes, activities, and systems, and ultimately helping improve safety and efficiency.
All sponsors and exhibitors receive a booth in the exhibit area, are acknowledged at the Opening Plenary and are recognized on the PSA21 website, in the Conference Program Book and on signage displayed throughout the Conference hotel. Hosts also provide a reception, luncheon, breakfast, coffee break or promotional item.
New in PSA21 are opportunities for non-profit nuclear science and technology organizations, national laboratory and academic institutions to actively engage in PSA21 and be represented in PSA21 Exhibits Area. Along with a booth the benefits at this level include one full conference registration for non-profit organizations and either one full conference registration for a university educator, or two full student conference registrations for an academic institution.
