MUMBAI, October 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Stage set for Policy 'Think Tanks' to Chart India's Role as a Growing Civil Nuclear Power
UBM India today announced the 6th edition of its flagship international exhibition and summit for the Civil Nuclear Energy sector, India Nuclear Energy 2014. The event is slated for the 6th - 8th of November 2014 at Nehru Centre, Worli in Mumbai.
The event will serve as an industry platform for over 75 exhibitors from across the globe, like Canada, Korea, France and UK, in addition to India, to showcase their products and technologies for the civil nuclear industry. The civil nuclear fraternity from India and overseas will share the platform, providing an opportunity for domestic and international companies to explore and tap the huge untapped potential that the nuclear industry presents in India.
Against the backdrop of India having a largely indigenous nuclear power program in place with nuclear deals being inked with countries like Australia, the sector promises a huge potential in India. In addition to the same, India today has a very technology friendly government, validated by the prime minister's visit to various technology intensive units and BARC. Most recently the successful and historic space flight of the Mars module 'Mangalayaan' together are positive signs of fulfilling power capacities of over 14,600 MW by year 2020.
Commenting on the focus of the 2014 edition of India Nuclear Energy, Joji George, Managing Director, UBM India said, "India, under the leadership of the new government, has a vision of leading nuclear technology, globally by leveraging its expertise in fast reactors and thorium fuel cycle. India Nuclear Energy 2014 will address these very technologies, preparing the launch-pad which would catapult the nation into a power surplus eco-system."
Along with the co-organiser, DAE (Department of Atomic Energy) and supporting partners, NPCIL (Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd.) and INS (Indian Nuclear Society), the event will also be marked by a summit based on the theme of 'Nuclear Power: Global and Indian Perspective' which would have Dr. R. Chidambaram, Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government of India as the chief guest. The summit will bring together senior nuclear professionals from DAE, NPCIL, INS and other private companies from the civil nuclear space. The summit would further shed light on the nuclear landscape, charting out India's ambitious path towards fulfilling 25% of India's total power requirements through nuclear technology by 2050.
Additional highlights of India Nuclear Energy 2014 would include a seminar based on the collaboration between India and the UK.
