The 106th council of the World Association of Nuclear Operators was held in Tokyo, Japan, on June 21 and 22. Chinese nuclear giant China General Nuclear Power Corporation (CGN) attended the event to share its expertise on the safe operation of nuclear power plants.
The 2017 audit report by WANO London office, a memorandum of understanding with the WNA (World Nuclear Association), and three new policies involving the protection of personal data, performance improvements by members, and exports control, were approved at the council.
Participants were briefed on organization management and on the contents of nuclear safety reports by four WANO regional centers (Atlanta, Moscow, Paris and Tokyo).
CGN Chairman He Yu expressed thanks for the WANO’s assistance and support to CGN fleets and to the firm’s proposed new projects.
At a seminar during the council, he also shared the group’s safety practices on how it trained staff members to work safely in a nuclear environment and how it enhanced safety culture training. He proposed that more exchanges should be carried out between power plants.
Gao Ligang, president of CGN Power Co — a CGN subsidiary, also attended the Tokyo meeting.
