My very first visit to Saudi-Arabia was an IAEA expert mission at the end of 2017. Before my visit, I was, might I say, a bit worried about how I would be able to learn the local customs and behave accordingly. But I soon learned, that – like everywhere else – life in Saudi Arabia is what you make of it. You can make the effort to integrate by learning Arabic and getting to know the local culture.
We all remember how COVID-19 hit the world last spring and started the still on-going transformation to “remote working world” in many areas of industries. Also education and training activities are going through big changes, and currently majority of trainings are organized as remote online sessions.
In the past few months, Platom has put a lot of effort on organizing and developing trainings based on its customers’ needs.
In order to achieve both national and international climate goals, many countries consider adding nuclear power to their energy palette. Today, there are operating nuclear power plants in 30 countries around the world and around half of these have plans to expand their existing fleets. Out of the 55 nuclear power plants under construction, a significant portion is being built in countries that already have operating nuclear power plants. Nuclear new builds have shifted from the West to the East, with a majority of the new builds being constructed or planned in China, India, and Russia.
