"The Chinese government places great importance on the safe and efficient development of nuclear energy", said the Chinese Premier Li Keqiang during a speech at the PBNC (Pacific Basin Nuclear Conference).
Indeed, China is willing to cooperate with various countries and this is one of the aims of Apave’s Nuclear business line, which wants to promote its expertise and increase its visibility. To achieve this aim, Apave took part in the Nuclear Industry China (NIC) exhibition - one of the largest exhibitions in the world - in Beijing from 6 to 9 April. Apave had a stand alongside the major players in the nuclear industry. It was also a chance for Apave to host a technical conference on the qualification of Chinese equipment for the international market. Apave also ran a workshop seeking to raise technical awareness on comparisons between RCC-M and ASME construction codes.
Apave is already working with Chinese industrialists on the qualification of their equipment on the international market. In 2015, the “Apply For Nuclear Safety” brand was created by Apave, alongside a company called Efectis, for the Chinese nuclear market. By combining their respective experience and know-how in nuclear energy, Apave and Efectis are able to offer a wide range of services in the fields of qualification,training and inspection.
