Helping our members shape a positive future for the industry

The industry’s long term improvement initiative is well underway. It is called ‘Action for Excellence - Shaping the Nuclear Future’, and it will raise the performance of nuclear power plants and facilities worldwide.

It is an important time for the global nuclear industry. By improving performance over the coming years, nuclear power plants can provide safe, reliable low carbon electricity to the world for decades to come. WANO is ready to support its members on this journey. 

This edition of Inside WANO is focused on the initiative, which features best practices from members around the world. It includes articles on three different Action for Excellence (AfE) pilot plants. These stations are pioneering the deployment of new approaches and innovations to help them - and the industry - raise performance levels. It is inspiring to learn about this shared desire for continuous improvement. It is important that our members continue to move forward and learn from each other; to build on the good progress made in the past 30 years. 

This issue also features a station that has already been through the improvement process; demonstrating just what is possible when people are working together to achieve two complimentary, interrelated goals; to maximise both safety and reliability.

I hope you enjoy this latest issue and look forward to working with you all to shape a positive future for our industry.
