Workshop on Local Intense Precipitation and its Impact on Nuclear Installations

The NEA in collaboration with the Ontario Power Generation (OPG) will organise a multi-sector workshop on 18-20 September 2024 on Local Intense Precipitation and its Impacts on Nuclear Installations.

The workshop will bring together regulators and stakeholders, including engineers, meteorologists and other experts - also from non-nuclear fields - to address key issues and identify technology gaps.


High-level national and international experts from a wide range of sectors will share their experiences and views during the five sessions of the workshop:

  • Estimating precipitation
  • Hydrologic and hydraulic models
  • Protection and mitigation procedure strategies in nuclear facilities
  • Regulatory approaches
  • Climate change
Participation and registration

The workshop is open to participants from the OECD member countries, the NEA member countries, and NEA strategic partners, invitees, and partner international organisations.

Participants should register before 31 August 2024 via the registration link.
