AECL Hosts OCI Suppliers Day at the Chalk River Laboratories

AECL Hosts OCI Suppliers Day at the Chalk River Laboratories:  ..."Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) and the Organization of CANDU Industries (OCI) are pleased to announce that the OCI Suppliers Day was once again held at the Chalk River Laboratories yesterday, welcoming over 50 nuclear vendors to the Ottawa Valley. The second annual fall trade show offered AECL employees the opportunity to network with representatives from the Canadian nuclear supply chain and to explore new commercial and technology development opportunities.
While the trade show was a clear success for OCI members, with vendor booths buzzing from start to finish, AECL also took the opportunity to showcase its own innovative technologies through displays and demonstrations. As a result, both organizations walked away with a better understanding of each other's technologies and capabilities, and of ways in which they could collaborate in using innovation to strengthen the Canadian nuclear supply chain.
In addition to the annual trade show, a joint workshop was hosted by OCI and AECL on September 11 to discuss innovation in Canada's nuclear supply chain. Among other issues, the workshop examined ways in which AECL can stimulate business innovation in the nuclear supply chain, and reviewed case studies involving successful AECL collaborations and commercial ventures. In addition to OCI and AECL representatives, a number of local elected officials and economic development professionals also attended to discuss economic opportunities in Renfrew County, including Cheryl Gallant, MP for Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke."
