HBA Participated as part of US Department of Commerce Industry Trade Group attending the IAEA General Conference in Vienna Sept. 16 to 21
High Bridge participated with over 30 US nuclear industry suppliers as part of a US Department of Commerce Industry Trade Group attending the General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) held in Vienna from Sept. 16 to 21. Over 2,500 attendees from over 150 IAEA Member Nations attended this annual event. Besides attending various IAEA conference sessions and side events, the Department of Commerce arranged private group meetings for the US Company Representatives with over 20 IAEA member nations delegations to be briefed about their growing commercial nuclear power programs. This was followed by many one-on-one meetings with countries interested in US goods and services. VP and Regional Manager Ken Aupperle represented High Bridge and attended the IAEA General Conference with this Industry Trade Group. Ken reports that High Bridge has very real opportunities emerging to support the commercial nuclear power programs in several countries including Canada, United Kingdom, France, United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia. Links below are provided for the several Summary Brochures made available and handed out to IAEA Conference attendees. Links to some photos from this conference are also provided.
High Bridge Regional Manager Ken Aupperle was invited by the construction management graduate program Professor at North Carolina State in Raleigh to give a 3-hour lecture and workshop in November 2017 on Project Management Lessons Learned for large mega-construction projects. Ken reports that “The workshop went very well with lots of student interaction.” The graduate CM program director/professor (Dr. Ed Jaselskis) was very pleased with things. Professor Jaselskis said “Ken had a lot in common with the student audience with his academic construction management background.” Ken also wanted to help the students to get interested in Energy and Nuclear Power for a career, so the first hour was devoted to large projects and power/nuclear energy 101 information with a lot of photos. While the presentation was a bit long, it was designed to have 2 hours of presentation/interaction and then an hour of questions/discussion. Preparing for this gave Ken the opportunity to take many prior presentations on the same subject and update with some current insights. Ken reflected that “It was very fulfilling to feel like I added some value to the learning process for these students and I was glad my real world remarks synced up well with the class syllabus.”
