Ready to optimize plant operations, reduce costs, and secure a sustainable future?  This webinar dives into Integrated Operations in Nuclear (ION), a powerful approach developed by the Light Water Reactor Sustainability (LWRS) Program to revolutionize your nuclear facility.

  • How ION leverages data, analytics, and collaboration tools to identify over 30 work improvement opportunities for your facility.

  • Proven strategies to empower your workforce and streamline operations, inspired by the success of the Norwegian North Sea oil and gas industry.

  • How ION's suite of continuous improvement tools can help your organization achieve its sustainability and efficiency goals.​

​The Light Water Reactor Sustainability (LWRS) Program leveraged Integrated Operations in Nuclear (ION) to identify over 30 work enhancement opportunities within the nuclear industry. This effort stemmed from the belief that data, analytics, collaboration, and advanced technologies can revolutionize plant operations and maintenance. Inspired by the Integrated Operations model of the Norwegian North Sea oil and gas industries, ION aims to empower nuclear professionals with modern communication and collaboration tools.

​ION offers a suite of continuous improvement tools, enabling organizations to achieve their objectives. By strategically combining incremental successes with long-term goals, the LWRS Program helped the nuclear industry evolve into a self-sustaining hub of excellence in power generation.  As the industry adopts more advanced, sustainable, and innovative systems, understanding the scope and effective implementation of ION becomes crucial for maintaining a competitive edge. This webinar is specifically tailored for innovation leaders who are actively developing sustainable solutions, working to enhance nuclear power cost competitiveness, and creating an attractive environment for the future nuclear workforce.​


The Integrated Operations Success Criteria was shared, which emphasizes ​the need for vertical and horizontal communication and collaboration through a data-centric model for faster and better decision-making.​
