ARMZ Uranium Holding Co. Took Part in Atomexpo Industry Forum
Where is uranium mined in Russia? What is the raw material for the nuclear industry? What makes the raw material complex of the domestic nuclear industry living today?
These and many other questions were answered to numerous guests of the Uranium Holding exposition presented at 2018 Anniversary Forum Atomexpo, which took place this year in the Olympic capital of Russia Sochi.
ARMZ Uranium Holding Co. presented an original composition in the form of a three-dimensional image of an underground uranium mine. Everyone could try on a miner’s helmet obligatory personal protective equipment below the ground - and, entering the mine, see with their own eyes where the raw materials for the nuclear industry come from. In addition, the guests were presented with the final product, a yellow cake produced by today’s most clean and environmentally friendly method of in-situ leaching. The qualitative characteristics of the yellow cake produced by the enterprises of the Ore Mining Division of Rosatom are today among the best in the world. The stand caused a real stir among the guests; many of them took the picture to remember.
The business program of ARMZ Uranium Holding Co included meetings and negotiations with partners, within which the management of the Holding discussed further prospects of the development of mines. One of the most discussed topics was the topic of “Smart” or “Digital Mine”, a pilot project of the Company, which is currently being implemented on the site of Khiagda, JSC. The project represents a transition of extractive enterprises to a new technological platform with an automated control system and robotic production.
The three-day program of the Forum consisted of three thematic tracks (“Digital Future and Industry”, “New Energy” and “People of the Nuclear Industry”), as well as 16 roundtables and four panel discussions, including “Globalization as a condition for success: construction of NPP in the partnership scheme”; “Development of competences for the countries-beginners and countries expanding nuclear power programs”; “Integrated management of the cost and time frames of NPP construction projects: factors of success of international projects”. A separate roundtable was devoted to Russia’s new opportunities in wind energy and prospects for entering the international market with wind power plants. Participants of the Forum also discussed additive technologies (in particular, opportunities in production of domestic 3D-printers by Rosatom enterprises) and international scientific cooperation in the use of advanced research infrastructure.
In total, the Forum gathered a record number of delegates and guests - more than 4,000 participants. Among them, representatives from 68 countries - for the first time from Congo and Georgia, as well as from Serbia, Zambia, China, Slovakia, etc. 136 companies presented their stands, inviting guests to familiarize themselves with products and new developments.
