III. INPPS Testimonials

We had the opportunity to meet many companies and organizations active in nuclear industry, including from countries such as Japan, France, Russia, the USA, China, Canada, the Czech Republic, and Spain. We saw that they have taken a close interest in [Turkey’s] nuclear energy projects and have configured their activities in line with our Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources’ objective of localization. They are very eager to collaborate with our domestic industry. As a result of this Summit, we believe that our country will be able to maximize the benefits of nuclear energy.

It was great opportunity for me to network with not only domestic but also worldwide industry professionals and stakeholders in nuclear market thanks to well organized event and atmosphere. I am looking forward to next summit.

Andreas Goebel

President and CEO of ATMEA, an AREVA and MHI company

This third edition of the INPS met a real success. Largest annual conference of nuclear power in Turkey, it had this year a true international dimension. It gathered experts from around the world who discussed key issues for the Turkish nuclear projects. A large and very well organized exhibition enabled Turkish and foreign institutions and companies to present their competencies and offers. This summit should really contribute to increase the Turkish expertise in the nuclear field.

Dr. Gerard Cognet

Regional Nuclear Counsellor, CEA & French Embassy in Turkey

In my view, it is a well-organized event that gave participants an excellent chance to change opinions and share experience. The Summit objectives and program are successfully tailored to address the current situation in the country that is in process of joining the club of nuclear power nations. Localization and establishment of supply chain is always on top of agenda of embarking countries as well as countries who import reactor technologies. Ukraine is one of such countries and, in spite of having matured nuclear industry and 15 power units in operation, we pay great attention to this topical issue and so the Summit program was in a great interest to me.

I appreciate invitation of the Nuclear Industry Association of Turkey to attend the Summit. Let me express confidence that future Summits will be as prominent and respectful events for world nuclear community as as the third International NPP Summit is now.

I can stress here that majority of presentation were very valuable and added significant and comprehensive view into current position of Turkish administration with respect to Nuclear Energy. I appreciate the possibility having the chance to meet and discuss certain economic aspects with experts and panelists who participated in the conference. Therefore the conference was very beneficial for me as the main topics were devoted to actual issue – a future o Nuclear Energy in Turkey. The Czech Republic, utilizing its experience and tradition in the field of Nuclear Energy, is ready to participate in projects in Turkey, our energy companies are willing to collaborate with Turkish partners and share its skills in this sector which was confirmed by participation of 6 Czech Companies at INPPS this year. I strongly believe the Czech delegation will be even larger next year.

It was my pleasure to participate in the INPPS Conference. I would be happy being invited next time as well.

We participated in the III. INPPS together with our two principals (LISEGA and VICODA from Germany) with two separate stands. We also participated in the previous year but without stands. Both ourselves and our principals evaluated the organization very successful and professional, also much better than the similar summits in the same industry. We really have had the chance to meet companies and people, who actually interested in the nuclear industry and to hear very useful speeches and to see the prsentations. Hope to meet again.
