Submarine Institute Nuclear Seminar 2021

Might submarines lead a nuclear industry in Australia? In October 2019, the Submarine Institute of Australia and UNSW hosted a single day seminar, aimed at stimulating national discussion on a holistic approach to a nuclear industry. This next seminar will consider the outlook for Australia’s national security situation over the next few decades, the benefits of nuclear propulsion for submarines, the potential for Australian industry if nuclear powered submarines are acquired in the future, developments in nuclear reactors for non-military application and the relevance and impact of extant legislation regarding nuclear power plants for civilian or naval requirements. Australian submarines with nuclear propulsion could potentially be but the first step in a broader Australian nuclear power industry.
