ENSA: The Cantabrian and British nuclear industry clusters held a meeting with the aim of studying future joint actions
Officers from the Cantabrian Nuclear Industry Cluster (CINC) and from the Britain's Energy Coast Business Cluster (BECBC) recently held a first contact meeting with the goal of studying the feasibility of future actions and whether there is room for some kind of collaboration among the different companies which make up the clusters.
On behalf of the cluster from Cantabria the meeting was attended by Ms. María Vega, Head for Business Development at Equipos Nucleares (ENSA) and the cluster’s chairperson, while on behalf of the group of British companies attended Mr. Ivan Baldwin, the BECBC’s President. Both introduced the companies belonging to the clusters which they represent.
Ms. Iciar Amorrortu, SODERCAN’s Project Manager was also present, explaining to Mr. Baldwin the management and operation of the cluster from Cantabria, stressing the “strong support which Sodercan provides to this kind of initiatives'.
The British cluster is made up by more than three hundred companies which operate in the energy industry and located in Cumberland, United Kingdom. Of them, 75% are engaged in the nuclear industry.
Mr. Baldwin showed his interest during the presentation, and he invited the cluster from Cantabria to attend one of the monthly meetings which they organize and which is attended by all the member companies, and thus the CINC can make a general on situ presentation of its activity and later, hold bilateral meetings with the BECBC’s companies. It is envisaged also that during the above meeting both clusters conclude a Collaboration Agreement.
Ms. Vega, the Head of Business Development at ENSA, highlighted the significance of setting up relationships with other clusters. In her opinion 'this is the ideal mechanism for sharing operating and training experiences, as well as for setting up union links with other companies which, without any doubt, will help us in our future development'.
The CINC’s President recalled that this meeting with the BECBC joins those already began with the Burgundy’s and Wales’ clusters, the latter also belonging to the United Kingdom.
