A collaboration with global leaders to promote maritime nuclear energy solutions

RINA Nuclear Energy Maritime Organization

We are glad to announce that RINA is among the 11 founding members (Nuclear Energy Maritime Organization), a new global group of leading companies with a common interest in developing nuclear energy solutions for the maritime sector.

Other founding members are: HD KSOE, CORE POWER, Lloyd’s Register, BWXT Advanced Technologies, TerraPower, Onomichi Dockyard, Westinghouse Electric Company, VARD Group, Bureau Veritas, and JEIL Partners. 

By bringing together stakeholders with relevant expertise, NEMO's mission is to help national and international regulators create appropriate future oriented standards and rules for the deployment, operation and decommissioning of floating nuclear power allowing floating nuclear power solutions to be deployed with the highest standards of safety, security, and environmental justice. 

NEMO will provide expert guidance and promote the highest safety, security, and environmental standards in the development of this nascent industrial sector, fostering collaboration, knowledge sharing, and advocacy among its members and stakeholders.

Advanced nuclear technologies deployed at sea can reduce environmental impact, enhance
social responsibility, and increase economic competitiveness. NEMO aims to provide a
platform for its members to network and facilitate a functional connection between regulators
to foster development and exchange best practices. 

NEMO's inaugural chairman, Dr. Mamdouh el-Shanawany, former head of the IAEA Safety
Assessment Section and Global Nuclear Director at Lloyd’s Register, said: "We are very excited to launch NEMO, which we believe will be a valuable and influential voice for floating nuclear power. We invite all stakeholders who share our vision and values to join us and become part of this dynamic and forward-looking alliance."
