GE Hitachi to help Vietnam develop nuclear-safety work force

Aimed at enhancing its understanding of boiling-water reactor technology, the Vietnam Agency for Radiation and Nuclear Safety (VARANS) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on Tuesday with GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH).

Established in 2007, GEH is part of a global nuclear alliance created by Hitachi and GE to better serve the global nuclear industry by providing broader solutions and capabilities within new reactor and service opportunities. Located in Wilmington, North Carolina, the global alliance offers its world-class leadership to clients seeking enhanced reactor safety, performance, output and power.

Under the MOU, GEH will help VARANS develop a trained work force in the field of nuclear safety. By 2030, Vietnam plans to construct more than 10,000 megawatts of nuclear generating capacity. GEH and VARANS both expect that this alliance will help Vietnam meet its rapidly growing energy demands.

“This agreement will enhance the capability of VARANS staff to perform technical assessments and safety evaluations,” GEH Senior Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer David Durham said. “Through this agreement and others, we look forward to continuing to support the building of Vietnam’s nuclear power infrastructure.”
