Training on NPHR Human Resources Planning Software for Nuclear Energy Power Plant Industry, London

May 8th, 2012

One of the greater challenges for countries pursuing energy independence through the establishment of their own sovereign nuclear energy power plant programme is human resources – the availability and training of a knowledgeable workforce to construct and safely operate nuclear power plants. To assist in meeting this challenge, the non-profit IX Power Foundation http://www.IXPower.com is offering a conference on human resource planning and an introductory training session on NPHR, the unique human resource planning and modeling software tool for the nuclear energy power plant industry created at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) for the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) http://www.iaea.org . The three-day human resources event, supported by the Nuclear Industry Association (NIA) http://www.niauk.org will be held September 10-12, 2012 in London at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies http://ials.sas.ac.uk . Information about attending the human resources training can be obtained by visiting the website: http://www.IXPower.com/NPHRtrain .

The nuclear energy NPHR human resources tool was licensed to the IX Power Foundation by LANL to distribute it globally and provide training on how to utilize it effectively. “The NPHR human resources tool was initially designed to assist in the creation of a nuclear power capability in countries without an established infrastructure,” said Deborah Deal-Blackwell, the Foundation’s CEO. “However, even countries well experienced in nuclear power plant planning can benefit from NPHR’s rational and comprehensive approach to human resources planning for existing and new plants.”

The IX Power Foundation is affiliated with New Mexico-based IX Power LLC, a technology transfer company that recently signed an agreement with Los Alamos National Laboratory for commercializing safe power and clean water technologies.

The founders of IX Power, comprised of John Grizz Deal, Randall Wilson, L. Robert Libutti, Otis “Pete” Peterson, and Deborah Deal-Blackwell, are renowned for their commercialization of the Hyperion Power SMR (small, modular nuclear energy reactor) from LANL that is safe and small enough to be transported on the back of a truck. Today, under their new company IX Power, their interests have been expanded to include every type of clean energy technology — wind, solar, bio fuels, geothermal, and nuclear. The company and foundation are based in Los Alamos, New Mexico and have offices in Denver, Colorado; Washington, D.C.; and London, England.

Facts About Nuclear Link Blaster Software

November 12th, 2010

Nuclear link blaster takes the hard work out of internet marketing.This software brings consumers from search engines directly to your website. The way link blaster works is through backlinks. Backlinks allow certain websites to rank higher in search engines by giving them a direct match to keywords. Consumers enter keywords in a search engine, the search engine brings up results based on keywords, link blaster software ranks your website among the top ten results. The software is an automated system that allows website owners to have more time on their hands.

Nuclear link blaster software allows you to get the most unsolicited and free traffic from search engines. It is also one of the only softwares that allows you to solve Captchas without interaction. With link blaster software you can create thousands of profiles a day.

All purchases of the software are made through a protective system known as pay pal. Nuclear link blaster has the Standard edition, which takes care of essential needs, and the Professional edition, which goes the extra mile for site owners. The software is insured with a 60 day return policy for the original price of your purchase.

The standard edition is backlinking in its simplest form. It helps you to manually establish false profiles, concurrently run 20 threads, establish and save up to 20 profiles, each profile is allowed 3 keywords, and zero profile tracking.

On the other hand the professional edition: runs 50 threads simultaneously, create and store up to 50 profiles, up to 5 keywords in ea. Profile, task list allows 10 profiles at a time, unlimited customer profiles for tracking, auto-create fake profiles.

Before downloading the software there are a few system requirements. These requirements include: Windows XP 32 bit, Windows Vista 32 bit & 64 bit, Windows 7 32 bit & 64 bit, 2MB And Above Broadband Connection, Minimum 2GB RAM, 4GB Recommended, Captcha Solving Service, Proxy Server, Antivirus, and Antispyware.

The link blaster helps to simplify online marketing. The easiest way to begin backlinks is by creating a new account on the high PR sites and attaching your links in the profile portion of the page.The more your profile gets viewed, the more consumer traffic you will receive. When this is done correctly, keywords are linked to your site and users are given the flexibility to create individual scripts too.

Nuclear link blaster software helps narrow down a target market and solicit customers that were virtually untouched.

Software will cut millions from nuclear clean-up bill

July 1st, 2010

The software package, based on the work of University of Leeds engineers, lets planners work out the best way of breaking up and packing contaminated equipment while minimising workers’ radiation exposure. It also shows in minute detail how radioactive waste can be stored in the smallest possible space, reducing the number of long-term storage containers needed.

“Independent commercial contractors have estimated that just packing this waste efficiently could lead to literally millions of pounds being saved from the public purse,” said Professor Richard Williams of the University of Leeds and co-inventor of the software. “This type of cost saving should accelerate the safe decommissioning of nuclear installations.”

The software is based on a general modelling tool that shows how oddly-shaped objects fit best together. Most other software packages used to solve packing problems can only handle simple and regular shaped objects – a scenario that does not reflect real life problems as accurately.

It is also able to take into account the properties of the material that is being packed, for example, its level of radioactivity and how hard it will be to cut.

The software package, launched commercially today, is based on research led by Professor Richard Williams and Dr Xiaodong Jia. It has been developed by the University of Leeds spin-out company Structure Vision Ltd.

Prior to its release, the NuPlant software was tested by several industry partners for a variety of applications. In one of these trials, conducted at the UK’s Low Level Waste Repository at Drigg, Cumbria, the software showed how the number of containers needed to transport and store racks that had held irradiated waste materials could be reduced by a third, simply by changing the way they were cut up.

The software is also expected to be used when nuclear reactors are being designed. In the UK, proposals to build new nuclear reactors have to include detailed decommissioning plans. These reactors could be needed for power plants, scientific research, or the commercial manufacture of radioisotopes for medical scans.

Neville Chamberlain, CBE, Chairman of the Structure Vision Board, said: “Previously when nuclear reactors were built, the cost of disposing of contaminated plants safely when they reached the end of their operating life was never a major concern. This software tool will help engineers design new reactors with cost-effective decommissioning in mind.”

Dr David Knight, Director of Software Development at Structure Vision Ltd said: “By providing not only accurate cutting and packing simulations, but an entire decommissioning project planning tool, project engineers will for the first time be able to see the whole picture of their liabilities and directly compare the impact of different approaches to dealing with intermediate- and low-level waste from complete nuclear facilities.”
