Barcelona, the city of Gaudi, the city of Messi, but on October 3 & 4 2012 Barcelona was the city of the first European Nuclear Power Plant Simulation Forum . 

It all started back in London, in February 2012 over a drink after another successful Nuclear event. Speaking to one of our sponsors there, Michael Chatlani from L-3 MAPPS, the topic came up. Getting a good feel for the world of nuclear power plant simulation, we decided to organize and host an event on Nuclear Power Plant Simulation in Europe.

After extensive research and feedback from key persons in the simulator industry we created our European Nuclear Power Plant Simulation Forum 2012 to be held in the beautiful city of Barcelona.Over 70 experts in the simulator industry (vendors, utilities, regulators and research institutes) joined us in Barcelona for two days to discuss the latest developments in the industry. The latest technologies, projects, codes, 3D visualization and simulation, strategies and focus points for the present and future were presented and demonstrated by an excellent speaker line-up. This all took place in the beautiful and accommodating 5-star venue of the Barcelona Pullman Skipper Hotel.

There were presentations from key vendors in the industry (L-3 MAPPS, Tecnatom, Western Services Corporation, Corys T.E.S.S., ISS), utilities (EDF, EDF Energy), research institutes (IRSN, University of Pisa, Technical University of Catalonia), the IAEA and more. On day 2 we concluded the Forum with a very impressive and interactive panel discussion about Severe Accident Simulation, one of the key present and future focus areas for the industry. The panel was chaired by Prof. Francesc Reventos from the Technical University of Catalonia and panelists were Robert Boire from L-3 MAPPS, Pablo Rey from Tecnatom, Oussama Ashy from WSC and Chris Allison from ISS.

During the coffee and networking breaks, attendees were networking with our sponsors and exhibitors and amongst themselves in the exhibitor area. Those were great opportunities to get demonstrations of latest technologies, talk business and enjoy a drink and snack.The Forum, the first of its kind in Europe has been a great success and was moderated and chaired in an excellent way by Mr. Michael Chatlani, VP Marketing & Sales from our Lead Sponsor L-3 MAPPS.

Based on all the feedback forms we received, it seems there was a real need for a platform like this in Europe and has given us something to build on. We have created the basis for a regularly returning European event.

With the help and commitment from our sponsors and speakers and the feedback, interest and need for information shown by the attendees we will be working towards our 2nd annual Forum next year and hope to create an even better event.I would like to thank all our sponsors: L-3 MAPPS, Tecnatom, Western Services Corporation, ISS, Corys T.E.S.S., GSE, CM Labs, Nuclear AMRC, Invensys Operations Management, for their support and belief to make this event a success.

Also a special thanks to our speakers and delegates who made the effort to be part of this Forum and helped us to create the basis for the next successful European Nuclear Power Plant Simulation Forums to come.
