SCHEDULE : A European Project - Sfen

SCHEDULE : A European Project

March 07 to 08, 2023
Conférence internationale

Use of offsite modular SCS (Steel Concrete Structures) for nuclear civil engineering

The conference is dedicated to a European project focused on construction efficiency of nuclear power plant. At this conference, delegates will hear directly from the project team about the experience gained in modelling, design, manufacture, construction and partial dismantling of a full-scale replica of diesel generator building using a modular form of construction.They will also have the opportunity to visit and inspect the demonstration building.

Whilst the demonstration building is typical of one used on nuclear sites, this form of construction has applications in other sectors as an alternative to reinforced concrete; for example, it has proved very successful for the construction of core walls in high rise buildings.
