16:20 – 17:15 Cernavodă Units 3&4 Units session

Following the termination of the previous round of negotiations, Romania is seeking to identify new investors for Cernavodă CANDU Units 3&4. This important project will double Romania’s nuclear capacity in order to meet increasing power demand and reach climate change targets. The Project is contemplated by the all scenarios of Romania’s Energy Strategy until 2030, with the perspective of 2050, as well as in the National Integrated Plan in the field of Energy and Climate Change (PNIESC) 2021-2030. Unit 3 has to be operational by 2030, and Unit 4 soon after 2030. The foreign partners envisaged by the Romanian government are from the EU / NATO area.

17.30 – 18:25 Nuclear safety regulatory issues session

Ensuring safe nuclear plant operation is key objective of nuclear power plant designers, operators and nuclear regulators in Canada and Romania. Romania’s CNCAN and Canada’s CNSC are long-term collaborators in the field. Also, meeting the European Union’s nuclear safety requirements is a challenge that the nuclear industry in the countries under its control. The Panel will discuss how this collaboration supports nuclear plant safety.

13:45 – 14:00 REGISTRATION & TESTS

14:00 – 14:55 Radioactive waste management and disposal session

Dealing with radioactive waste is one of the most important aspects in both Romanian and Canadian nuclear plant operations and in maintaining public support. Through collaboration, Romanian and Canadian nuclear waste agencies and research organizations can identify the best solutions. Here, as well as at the nuclear safety session, observing the EU legal framework represents an important challenge.

15:10 – 16:05 Small Modular Reactors session

New, more easily deployable nuclear technologies are making their way into the industry, making nuclear power accessible to remote communities. Coupled with Gen IV innovations, SMRs are regarded by many countries as a key part of nuclear development. Romania has a long-term vision in the nuclear field, aiming to achieve competitive SMRs in the perspective of the late ‘20s, ’30s and’ 40s, and Canada is progressing vigorously in this way.
