Kika Nuclear Cranes Seminar

Nuclear Cranes Seminar 2014 is canceled

Some months ago we sent a simple questionnaire to our listed contacts in the network KIKA (Crane users in Nuclear Facilities), to see if they were interested in another KIKA seminar. First, thank you for all answers and interesting comments. Even though many of the received answers are positive, the number of interested answers is not enough for us to continue the planning.

Thus, we will not arrange a Nuclear Cranes Seminar 2014. But we will let you know if strong interests arise for such a seminar in the future.

As a result, we will shut down the seminar’s current homepage www.kikacranes.com.

Kind regards,
Thomas Krüger

Organizers

KIKA (Crane users in Nuclear Facilities) is a network specifically directed towards lifting processes within the nuclear power industry or other operations where nuclear material is lifted. Participants in the network are from Sweden and Finland. The members of KIKA are the NPPs in Sweden and Finland (Forsmark, Oskarshamn, Ringhals, Loviisa and TVO), together with Barsebäck, SKB and Studsvik.

The aim of KIKA is to unite and support each other when it comes to questions of safety and the exchange of experience with the lifting area. KIKA was started in 1999, at the time with members from Sweden only. Since then Finland with Loviisa and TVO has joined. Since its inception, KIKA has developed common competence requirements for inhouse inspection, crane operators, slingers, signalmen and lifting leaders.
