Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME) will be hosting a New Brunswick Small Modular Reactor (SMR) Supply Chain Event this fall focused on how suppliers from Atlantic Canada can participate in the advanced SMR opportunity.
The event will feature speakers from NB Power, ARC Canada, and Moltex Energy, along with representatives from the Government of Canada and the Government of New Brunswick, as they provide an update on progress, timelines, and vision for advanced SMR development and deployment in New Brunswick and Canada.
During the event, specific focus will be given to how participants can be involved, through facilitated Breakout Sessions and opportunities to engage with vendors.
The event will be held on Tuesday, June 14, 2022, at the Saint John Trade and Convention Centre.
In keeping with the event’s primary focus of promoting economic development within the Province of New Brunswick, the theme will be “Generating Benefits for New Brunswick”, with the following objectives in mind:
- Provide progress updates from the advanced SMR cluster
- Promote discussion and networking opportunities
- Educate participants of opportunities, timelines and vision
- Provide a forum for interactive breakout sessions dedicated to:
- “Fit for SMR”
- Industry Support
- Indigenous Partnerships
The daylong event will begin at 9am and will close with a reception from 4pm – 5pm. Doors open at 8:30am for registration.
The event will be co-hosted by CME and FNPA to maximize efforts in connecting with the Indigenous, manufacturing and business communities, with a significant contribution provided by Opportunities New Brunswick (ONB).
Tri-Party members continue to collaborate in areas of supply chain development, shared infrastructure, common fleet services and energy park opportunities, positioning the province as a manufacturing hub that supports the aSMR market.
Invitations to register will be sent out in early March.
