December 2016 – WiN France at the “Assises du Démantèlement” (Dismantling Foundation)

This event was organized by PVSI, the Center for the Valorization of Industrial Sites and was held on 14 December 2016 in Marcoule.

The PVSI association brings together industrialists, research institutes and educational institutions working in the field of dismantling, deconstruction and depollution of nuclear installations in the Gard region (located in South of France, this region includes many nuclear installations). The objective is to meet the technical and financial challenges by the future global markets for nuclear dismantling and, more generally, deconstruction and decontamination in sectors with similar constraints (sensitive waste, confined environments)

The structuring of the nuclear dismantling sector, as well as its digital transformation, were the main topics for the debates and the round tables.

The importance of training was highlighted during the first three awards:

  • for the Mechatronics training of the Ales Mining School
  • for the Albert Einstein high school in Bagnols and its campus for trades and qualifications on processes and technologies in sensitive environments.
  • for Master II management and dismantling of Marcoule: Alexandra Gutierrez Chavida and Marie Winckel, of the Master II, were distinguished. Their prize was given to them by Dominique Mouillot President of WiN France « for their academic results, the quality of their defense and their initiative to create a student association »
