On June, the 2011 Technical Session
of the Spanish Nuclear Society (SNE), entitled: The Implementation
of the Regulations for Industrial Safety in Nuclear Power Plants,
took place in the presence of Lola Morales, President of the SNE,
Ignacio Mosso, President of AEGIC and Alberto Bernárdez,
President of ASEICAM.
The 37th Annual Meeting that
will be held from 28 - 30 September 2011 in Burgos is already

The ICAI-SNE Joint Conference,
which was held at the Universidad Pontificia de Comillas, on 12
April 2011, was this year dedicated to: A National and International
Overview of Nuclear Energy - a subject that, given current circumstances,
is of particular relevance. Miguel Garcia Duvison, Operations
Director at Red Eléctrica de España, gave a presentation
entitled: The Contribution of Power Generation Technologies to
the Safety of Supply in the Spanish System. Manuel Ibáñez
Giner., Nuclear Energy Director of UNESA, then spoke about The
Spanish Nuclear Power Stations: News and Perspectives. Finally,
Juan Ortega Delgado, Business Development Director at TECNATOM,
gave a presentation entitled: Nuclear Energy International Prospective.
After the presentations there was a colloquium.
Young Nuclear Generation is actively promoting
education and training for young people. It delivered its Annual
Seminar on Advanced Reactors at the ETS of Industrial
Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Madrid and its Basic
Course of Nuclear Science and Technology at the Polytechnic
Center of the University of Zaragoza.
The SNE has maintained its role as spokesperson
for nuclear sector professionals, using press releases published
on its website to keep members and anyone else interested in the
evolving post-Fukushima situation informed about what is going
on there and about resulting international action. Some of its
members have further maintained this informative role by explaining
in a comprehensible way to the general public - via the media
- the events as they were unfolding.
Nuclear España, the monthly magazine
of SNE that has been published in Spanish and English since 1984,
devoted its edition N° 317 to the winter conference entitled:
Nuclear Power Plants in 2010: Experiences and Perspectives.
SNE will shortly hold its annual competition
for the allocation of 5 scholarships to the value of € 3,000
to students who meet the requirements mentioned in the call for
entrants, namely to enrollment themselves in a Master's and/or
postgraduate degree course in nuclear science and technology.
All the relevant information is posted on SNE’s website
The SNE website also contains a glossary of
nuclear terms in Spanish that is growing constantly. It is a useful
reference tool for members of the nuclear sector.
