Successful DigiDecom 2019 workshop

60 participants from 17 countries were in Halden 18-21 June for the 2019 DigiDecom workshop. The workshop included technologies such as 3D simulation, digital twin and virtual/augmented reality as part of innovative methods for knowledge management, training and education in nuclear decommissioning.

A growing shortage of skilled nuclear decommissioning specialists is foreseen in the upcoming decades, due to the rapidly increasing demand and low supply (resulting from social and political trends). The workshop brought together a multidisciplinary group representing the professional community working on decommissioning and allowed them to:

  • Demonstrate technology, tools and methods with  software and tech support provided by IFE
  • Share interesting technical solutions including technical demos prepared in groups
  • Experience a tour of IFE’s facilities including 3D virtual/augmented reality and robotics as tools for exploring sites and controlling equipment.
