September 30, 2011

Garry Chapman, Director of Nuclear Programs for Kinectrics US, was a key participant in the recent EPRI / NRC Fragility Workshop held in Newport Beach, CA. As a well-known expert in nuclear equipment qualification, Chapman was invited, along with several other industry professionals, to review and evaluate rule making with regard to the evaluation of seismic risk / margin associated with nuclear plants.

The issue of seismic risk has been under consideration for several years. However, recent global events have increased the visibility of this scientific program and expedited studies in this area.

The EPRI / NRC Fragility Workshop represented a joiont effort to compile feedback from leading industry experts. Chapman's valued participation in this important area of scientific study further underlines Kinectrics commitment to enhanced safety for the nuclear industry.
