To ensure the industrial applicability of models and tools developed in TeaM Cables, an end-user group will be set up, which aim will be to assess TeaM Cables models, tool and results during and by the end of the project.
The organisations, outside the consortium, involved in the end-user group and their role are presented below:
- EPRI (Andrew Mantey) – USA
- ANTIAGE project (Eason Zhang) – China
- Tecnatom (Juan Carlos Cano) – Spain
- Forsmarck (Mattias Hansson) – Sweden
- Paks II (Tibor Fazekas) – Hungary.
NUGENIA is the Nuclear Generation II & III Association. TeaM Cables has received the NUGENIA label.
The NUGENIA Executive Committee appointed a contact person, John Sharples, to play the role of advisor for the project and to act as interface with NUGENIA and its stakeholders (more than 110 members). To ensure that the project research is in line with the strategic objectives of NUGENIA, the advisor will be invited to project consortium meetings and will be asked to review some of the deliverables produced by TeaM Cables.
The NUGENIA association will also be an important channel to disseminate project results.
Advisors on standards
TeaM Cables partners aim not only at developing a new approach for cable ageing management, but also at contributing to revised standards in the field.
To make sure this is efficiently done in accordance with standard organisation’s procedures, TeaM Cables will collaborate with the Secretary of the International Electrotechnical Commission – IEC – and its European Committee CENELEC Mr Jean-Paul Bouard (IEC SC45A Secretary and CENElec TC45A Secretary) and with Ms Patricia Cuadrado (Empresarios Agrupados (EA) – Spain for support with the review of standards.
