3rd JAPAN-U.S. FORUM ON FUKUSHIMA RECOVERY AND DECOMMISSIONING

“FUKUSHIMA RECOVERY FORUM”

Tokyo, Japan, February 24-26, 2016

The U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration (ITA), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy, is organizing the third Japan-United States Forum on Fukushima Recovery and Decommissioning (“Fukushima Recovery Forum”) on February 24-26 2016, in Tokyo, Japan.

The Fukushima Recovery Forum will be a venue for U.S. firms to hear from the Japanese Ministry and commissioning entities on plans for Fukushima Recovery and for U.S. and Japanese firms to share experiences, expertise, and lessons learned in decommissioning, including on work underway at Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Station in Fukushima Prefecture.

U.S. firms will also be given an opportunity to network with Japanese firms and identify potential business partners.

ITA hopes that this cooperation between the U.S. and Japanese private sectors will lead to solutions that will enhance Fukushima recovery efforts.

ITA is seeking the participation of a maximum of approximately 25 U.S. companies that produce technology or provide services in the decommissioning sector, including fuel debris removal, water treatment, and waste management.

The U.S. Department of Commerce’s U.S. & Foreign Commercial Service (CS) will also be available in Tokyo to provide its export counseling services to participating companies.

The Fukushima Recovery Forum will take place on February 24-26, 2016.

On Day 1 (February 24), The Forum will consist of presentations on the status of the work underway at Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Station, from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), Nuclear Damage Compensation and Decommissioning Facilitation Corporation (NDF), and International Research Institute for Nuclear Decommissioning (IRID).

The afternoon part of the Forum will consist of networking and matchmaking opportunities for U.S. firms.

On Day 2 (February 25), we organize the full day visit to the decommissioning site of Tokai Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Station, owned by Japan Atomic Power Company (JAPC). This full day visit is optional. U.S. firms will receive briefings from JAPC on possible opportunities.

On Day 3 (February 26), we organize the full day visit to Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Station, owned by Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO). This full day visit is optional. U.S. firms will receive briefings from TEPCO on possible opportunities.
