Testimonials

On behalf of Renaissance Heavy Industries and as a platinum sponsor of 2018 NPP Expo, I would like to express my sincere thanks for this superb summit gathering global and domestic competitors of nuclear industry development on several various business aspects. The overall organization, content of conferences and discussion topics with a broad range of participants were in principal aiming to support localization activities and competences for future new build nuclear power plant projects in Turkey.

During the summit, the Nuclear Matchmaking platform meetings contributed to several initial B2B achievements for companies and individuals as well.

Renaissance Heavy Industries look forward to discovering the next years edition.

2018 NPP Expo was as usual a very interesting and very fruitful event which allow to gather once a year in Turkey all the companies and institutions dealing with turkish nuclear power plants program. Organization and agenda of the summit were very smartly shaped and instructive and allowed to focus on the main current important topics for Turkey. We will definitely come back next year hoping that other topics such as Research and Development and radioactive waste management will also be dealt in further details

Philippe Pierrard

Nuclear Counsellor, CEA, France

On behalf of the Korea Nuclear Association I would like to congratulate the organizing committee for the successful outcomes from the 2018 NPP Expo.

The summit itself was a great channel for world’s leading minds of the nuclear industry to share insights, and the exhibition and B2B Matchmaking program offered a chance for industries of diverse field and level to come together and explore opportunities for cooperation. Even though the summit held a wide range of events, thanks to the hard work from all the staffs in Turkey all moments were fluent and exciting.

Especially I am very pleased to have participated in this year’s NPP Expo, as the Turkish and Korean nuclear industries had an opportunity to build valuable network for a fruitful cooperation. We look forward to coming back next year.

Tekrar görüşmek dileğiyle!

In general, the participating companies were pleased with the summit and the networking opportunities provided to them, in particular.

These companies are interested in supporting the nuclear projects underway in Turkey as well as in bringing in know-how to the Turkish nuclear market.

The NPP Nuclear Matchmaking Forum contributed to numerous initial contacts in an unconventional and unbureaucratic way. We certainly will recommend this event to the whole German nuclear industry. The 2017 summit was organized pragmatically, focused on business relationships and had a good price/performance ratio. On behalf of the VGB/German Delegation we finally would like to thank you for the purposeful cooperation.

This third edition of the NPP Fair met a real success. Largest annual conference of nuclear power in Turkey, it had this year a true international dimension. It gathered experts from around the world who discussed key issues for the Turkish nuclear projects. A large and very well organized exhibition enabled Turkish and foreign institutions and companies to present their competencies and offers. This summit should really contribute to increase the Turkish expertise in the nuclear field.

Dr. Gerard Cognet

Regional Nuclear Counsellor, CEA & French Embassy in Turkey

In my view, it is a well-organized event that gave participants an excellent chance to change opinions and share experience. The Summit objectives and program are successfully tailored to address the current situation in the country that is in process of joining the club of nuclear power nations. Localization and establishment of supply chain is always on top of agenda of embarking countries as well as countries who import reactor technologies. Ukraine is one of such countries and, in spite of having matured nuclear industry and 15 power units in operation, we pay great attention to this topical issue and so the Summit program was in a great interest to me.

I appreciate invitation of the Nuclear Industry Association of Turkey to attend the Summit. Let me express confidence that future Summits will be as prominent and respectful events for world nuclear community.
