Welcome to the website of the French Nuclear Industry Exporters’ Association (AIFEN).
Since the construction of its first nuclear power reactor 58 years ago, France has developped a comprehensive nuclear industry and unequalled expertise in the field. Its 58 standardized nuclear power reactors have achieved optimum efficiency with regards to costs, security, but also experience feedback.
Yesterday, today, and tomorrow, it was, has been, and always will be open to international collaboration. As a proof of its committment in the field of nuclear cooperation, France has signed intergovernmental agreements with over 30 countries across the world.
So as to contribute to this great international endeavor, AIFEN created in 2014 the World Nuclear Exhibition (WNE). This international expo entirely dedicated to nuclear energy already welcomed over 7,200 visitors and 495 exhibitors from 71 different countries on its first edition.
I invite all players of the global nuclear energy community to come and join us in Paris-Le Bourget in June 2016. Together, we can make our industry prosper and accompany the developpment of safe, secure, and sustainable nuclear energy. Together, I believe we can take up current environmental challenges and meet the world’s increasing electricity demand.
