WANO calls for Nuclear Excellence Awards nominations to recognise outstanding contributions to global nuclear safety

WANO, PUBLISHED 19.03.2019

The World Association of Nuclear Operators (WANO), the world's leading safety organisation for commercial nuclear power plants, has today called on its members to send in nominations for the 2019 Nuclear Excellence Awards.

WANO established the prestigious Nuclear Excellence Awards on 2 July 2002 in honour of Dr Zack Pate,to recognise his leadership in promoting excellence in the worldwide nuclear industry. Individuals at any level within a WANO member organisation are eligible for the award.

The winners of these awardsare selected on the basis of having made exceptional or extraordinary contributions to excellence in the operation of nuclear power plants, or to the infrastructure that supports the nuclear power enterprise, or through WANO.

Peter Prozesky, Chief Executive Officer at WANO commented: "There are some exceptional people working in the nuclear industry who stand out due to their extraordinary contributions to excellence in safe nuclear power operations. We look forward to reviewing this year's nominations and recognising these inspirational individuals at the WANO Biennial General Meeting held in October."

WANO will accept nominations for the awards until 26 April 2019. WANO will then review the entries and present the awards at the next WANO Biennial General Meeting, which will be held in London, UK in October 2019, under the theme '30 years of WANO: Generating a Safer Future Together'. The award will be accompanied by a citation, approved by the WANO Governing Board, providing a summary of the contributions made by the recipient in support of excellence in the operation of nuclear power plants.

I think the fact that the world's two largest nuclear complexes are proceeding in total isolation from each other is a danger to each of us and a danger to the rest of the world as well. And we have to find the way to fix it.

If you have a thousand engineers without a leader I am not sure you can build something. If you have a thousand leaders with no engineers the result would be the same. That is why we need both types of skill.
