In September 2017, I was appointed Chairman of the Association by AFCEN's Board of Directors. I would like to thank all the member companies for the trust and confidence that they have shown in my abilities by confirming my new role at the helm of the Association.
AFCEN's seven codes represent an exceptional asset that leverages the technical expertise and feedback that have been acquired over more than 40 years from designing, manufacturing and operating systems, structures and components in over 100 nuclear reactors around the world. New editions were released this year for six of the codes, representing the entire collection used for PWRs, which again bears testament to our determination to incorporate and build on the latest knowledge.
The expertise of AFCEN members paints a clear picture of how the AFCEN association is thriving.
Feel free to join one of our working groups and bring your expertise to a "collaborative development" strategy that benefits the nuclear industry by working together in raising the bar on the quality, safety and competitive advantage of nuclear projects and facilities around the world.
On behalf of all our members, I wish you enjoyable browsing on the AFCEN website.
I look forward to seeing you at the next AFCEN Conference in March 2019.
