China is the stage as WANO presents its 2011 Nuclear Excellence Awards


The World Association of Nuclear Operators (WANO) is a long-established corporate member of ENS. WANO, through its four regional centres, unites the operators of the 441 nuclear power plants in the world in the common cause of achieving the highest possible standards of nuclear safety and reliability. This is done by working together to benchmark and improve

performance and through mutual support and the exchange of information and best practices.

In response to the accident at Fukushima, WANO is continuously improving the services it provides to its members.
At its eleventh Biennial General Meeting, held in Shenzhen, China, on 25 October 2011, WANO presented its 2011 Nuclear Excellence Awards. The awards, which were created in 2003, acknowledge the outstanding contribution made by nuclear professionals to promoting excellence in the safe operation of commercial nuclear power plants.
