Tetronics participated in the UKTI Nuclear Trade Missions to Japan and Taiwan.


Following strong Japanese investment in nuclear new build in the UK, and the partnership between Taiwan Power Company (Taipower) and the UK’s Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) organised nuclear trade missions to Japan and Taiwan.

These missions included expert market sector briefings and decommissioning workshops, and gave UK companies a fast track introduction to Japan and Taiwan’s respective decommissioning programmes. Participants had the chance to meet with key stakeholders and local firms to share the experience of decommissioning, and discuss potential collaboration and opportunities in the respective markets.

Tetronics International’s Les Liddiard participated in both UKTI nuclear trade missions.
