Women in Nuclear Spain is organizing a conference open to the entire society of the city of Cartagena, which, being held in the base city of the Spanish submarines, deals with a topic that relates the propulsion of submarines with nuclear science and technology.
The conference “From the Nautilus to the Virginia: The Evolution of Nuclear Propulsion” will be given by Carolina Ahnert, emeritus professor of Nuclear Engineering at the Higher Technical School of Naval Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Madrid and will take a tour of the technological evolution of the designs of nuclear submarines and the reactors that propel them. It will be highlighted how the concept of the PWR reactor was initially developed for naval propulsion, and from there, it derived its application to the production of electrical energy.
The talk will take place in the Conference Room of the Roman Theater in the city of Cartagena on Tuesday, September 27 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm.
