  • Spain's Nuclear Safety Council agreed on May 24th, 2013 to extend the deadline for the closure of the Garoña nuclear power plant. It will leave more time for the operator, Nuclenor, to potentially request the extension of the operating licence of Garoña, which is scheduled to stop working on July 6th 2013.

  • The 39thAnnual Meeting that will be held from 25th to 27th of September of 2013 in Reus is already open for registration. All the relevant information about the meeting is available at:

The technical program includes three Plenary Sessions and two Monographic Sessions devoted to relevant current issues related to energy subjects or associated topics. The participants in these sessions include high ranking national and international experts in the topics covered by the sessions.

The Plenary Sessions will focus on currently important issues in the energy and nuclear sectors such as:

• Training, a strategic key to the safe operation of nuclear power plants.
• Internationalization of the Spanish nuclear industry.
• Management and prioritization of regulatory requirements (roundtalbe format).

For Monograph Sessions have chosen the following two topics:

• Research in the nuclear sector.
• Electric power interconnections and security of supply.

The core of the technical program are the Technical Sessions and “Learn more about... Courses”, in which national and international professionals and experts present their work on relevant projects and scientific studies and on the progress made in the past year in different fields. The technical papers are presented in parallel oral sessions and poster sessions. The subjects of the papers cover a wide range of fields such as fission, maintenance, R&D, communication, legal aspects of nuclear power, medical
applications, etc.

This year “Learn more about...Courses” will be:

• The electricity market and the domestic bill.
• Human error prevention techniques in engineering works.

The meeting also includes activities aimed at informing and educating the general public, e.g. the Basic Course on Nuclear Science and Technology, which is organized by the SNE’s Nuclear Youth Committee and is open to students from the city and region and to anyone else who wishes to learn more about nuclear energy and technology.


  • Young Nuclear Generation is pushing actively the education and training of young people, giving new editions of its Annual Seminar on Safety on Advanced Reactors, Basic Course of Nuclear Science and Technology at the ETS of Industrial Engineering of Polytechnic University of Madrid.

  • Nuclear España, the monthly magazine of SNE, published since 1984, has issued the editions 335th and 339th about the “38th Annual Meeting” and the winter session "Spanish Nuclear Power Plants in 2012. Experiences and Perspectives", in English and Spanish.
