OCNI companies succeed in key export markets

OCNI supports member companies in offshore markets by providing market updates and leading trade missions to strategic target markets with high growth potential as well as those with CANDU infrastructures in place.  The trade missions receive both financial and logical support from Global Affairs Canada as well as the Ontario Ministry of International Trade.

OCNI took nine companies to the PowerGen Trade Show in Orlando in December 2016 – a large event with delegates from the broader power industry.

OCNI led a second trade mission to Argentina in March 2017 involving nine suppliers and two partners (CANDU Owners Group, Ontario Government). The mission included meetings and site visits to nine leading Argentine industrial companies along with meetings with the Undersecretary of Nuclear Energy, NA-SA, CNEA and INVAP.  The Trade Mission generated goodwill between the Canadian and Argentine nuclear industries that should translate into more Canadian component supply to the Atucha 3 CANDU project.

OCNI hosted a USNIC-led Trade Mission to Canada in August 2017 involving fifteen US companies including five SMR developers. The five-day mission included meetings with NRCan, CNSC and CNA in Ottawa and OPG, Ontario Ministry of Energy, SNC-Lavalin and Kinectrics in the GTA. Delegates also visited Chalk River, Bruce Site and Darlington /DEC. The purpose of the mission was to enhance Canada-US collaboration on: next generation reactors including SMRs, advanced research and development, advanced manufacturing, and nuclear project delivery.   

OCNI was a “Gold Sponsor” of this year’s Toronto Global Forum (TGF) on “Redefining Globalization” from October 30 to November 1 at the Royal York.  OCNI collaborated with the TGF “Content Team” in develop a strong “Nuclear Day” program on October 31. The goal was to promote the nuclear industry to the global investment, environmental and political leaders.
