Vietnam to Learn More About Nuclear Reactors from GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy

GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH) signed a memorandum of understanding with the Vietnam Atomic Energy Agency (VAEA) to enhance the agency’s understanding of light water reactor technology and nuclear project management.

GEH and VAEA will cooperate to promote training and development of qualified human resources associated with Vietnam’s civilian nuclear power program. GEH will provide practical work experience for VAEA staff in such areas as nuclear safety culture, project management and quality assurance.

GEH signed MOUs with Hanoi University of Science and Technology and Electric Power University to cooperate in the field of nuclear engineering and technology. Twelve students from the two universities completed internships at GEH’s world headquarters in North Carolina.

Vietnam is planning to build more than 10-GW of nuclear generating capacity by 2030.
