One WANO – A Commitment to Nuclear Excellence

Welcome to the latest edition of Inside WANO.  It focuses on key topics discussed at WANO’s recent Global CNO Forum and Biennial General Meeting, which were both held in Prague. Senior representatives of WANO’s membership convened to discuss the key opportunities and challenges for the industry over the coming years, under the conference theme of ‘One WANO – A Commitment to Nuclear Excellence’.  

In this issue, you will find articles based on topics presented by senior industry leaders in Prague. Due to the pandemic, it was the first opportunity in three years for senior global counterparts to meet face to face to discuss key issues. The forum and conference were a remarkable success and offered many opportunities for discussion and interaction between delegates.

More than 300 senior representatives from the WANO membership and other industry organisations attended the meeting, with over 30 nations and areas worldwide represented.

At the conference, we launched WANO’s new long-term plan, Unity: Towards Nuclear Excellence, which is available here: UNITY

On a personal note, as I am retiring at the end of the year, I would just like to express my gratitude to everyone at WANO and our members for sharing information and supporting each other to maximise safety and reliability at plants worldwide.

It has been a pleasure and an honour to lead WANO and help this special industry on its journey towards excellence.

I wish you a wonderful festive season and all the best for the future!
Ingemar Engkvist
WANO Chief Executive Officer
