July 2, Bucharest, Romania. The Organization of Canadian Nuclear Industries (OCI) is proud to announce the signing today of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Romanian Atomic Forum Association (ROMATOM).  The MOU was signed by Dr. Ron Oberth, President of OCI, and by Dr. Nelu Rotaru, President of ROMATOM, at the start of a Canada-Romania Cernavoda 3/4 Supply Chain Partnering Workshop at the Bucharest Hilton organized jointly by ROMATOM and OCI.

The Partnering Workshop included an update on the planned Cernavoda 3/4 CANDU project as well as presentations by Canadian and Romanian nuclear suppliers on their nuclear capabilities and experience along with discussions on their mutual interest in collaborating on the Cernavoda 3/4 CANDU Project.

This MOU outlines several ways that OCI and ROMATOM will work together including identifying opportunities at nuclear projects in Romania, Canada, and other countries on which OCI and ROMATOM companies can cooperate.  The OCI-ROMATOM MOU will also encourage and facilitate cooperation among Canadian and Romanian nuclear research institutes and universities on nuclear research, development, and nuclear education.

“OCI celebrates this MOU signing and looks forward to building a strong working relationship with the Romanian nuclear supplier community in ensuring that the planned Cernavoda 3/4 project will be completed on budget and on schedule and will create quality jobs in Romania and Canada” said OCI President Dr. Ron Oberth.

The Canada-Romania Cernavoda 3/4 Supply Chain Partnering Workshop was the focal point of a three day 12 company OCI-led Trade Mission to Romania that kicked off with a July 1 Canada Day Celebration hosted by the Canadian Embassy and also included visits to Romanian manufacturing facilities as well as informal business to business meetings. 

The Trade Mission to Romania was supported by co-funding from Global Opportunities for Associations” (GOA) program through which the Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada (DFATD) encourages and supports trade associations in taking member companies into promising export markets.
