About this event

The Great NE Japan Earthquake of March 2011 caused massive destruction and devastated the lives of thousands but, for the international news media, it was the involvement of four nuclear power plants that grabbed the headlines. Three years on, the effect on the nuclear power industry has been felt world-wide.

The speaker will analyse the sequence of events in the Fukushima plant, the short-term and longer-term consequences, and the implications for the wider debate on energy supplies against a background of climate change, with particular reference to the UK.


Professor Tony Wickham is a Visiting Professor in the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering, The University of Manchester. He has also been involved with the university in joint research with TU Delft (The Netherlands) on designs of small unattended reactor systems for small communities. Tony chairs the IAEA Collaborative Research Programme (CRP) on Treatment Options for Irradiated Graphite Waste, and also the Technical Steering Committee for the IAEA Knowledge Base on Nuclear Graphite. He is also technical secretary for a second CRP on Irradiation Creep in Nuclear Graphite.
