Altran sponsors IET Nuclear Engineering conference (27 March 2014)

Altran is delighted to announce that it is the headline sponsor of Nuclear Engineering for Safety, Control and Security, a one-day conference that will be staged by the IET in Bristol on Thursday 27th March 2014. The conference will cover a range of engineering issues concerning safety, control and security across the nuclear spectrum, from generation and waste management to new build and defence.

Expert presentations at the conference will address key ageing and safety challenges including solutions to ageing, obsolescence and life extension, regulation of the nuclear industry, and nuclear safety maintenance and line of sight to the safety case. The conference will also address the increasing reliance on software to manage safety-critical systems, and will feature presentations focusing on the greater acceptance of safety-critical software by nuclear operators, the application of lessons learned from the safety-critical aviation industry, and regulatory standards for safety, control and security in the nuclear industry.

Announcing the sponsorship, Stuart Yellowlees, Altran’s UK Head of Energy and Life Sciences, said: “As a trusted programme and innovation partner of organisations not just in the nuclear industry but a wide range of other sectors, Altran enables its clients to develop, deploy and maintain leading-edge technological systems and products – from critical national infrastructure to state-of-the-art air traffic management systems. In the nuclear sector, Altran offers a unique approach to supporting the development, justification, verification, validation and management of existing and new safety- and mission-critical systems, thanks to its outstanding credentials in requirements, systems and safety engineering across a broad range of high-tech industries. Furthermore, with niche expertise in defining, developing, re-engineering, implementing and testing critical and embedded C&I systems and high integrity software, Altran enables the nuclear industry to realise safety, security and business benefits offered by new technology. We are therefore delighted to sponsor this important conference, which will provide essential insights and updates for safety and security engineers throughout the UK nuclear industry.”
