Nicolas Valayé

Nicolas has spent his 25+ years’ career with SLB (x-Schlumberger) – the global leader in the Oil & Gas service industry – in Houston Texas and Norway. Nicolas has joined Genvia 3 years ago in France, the joint venture created by SLB New Energy, CEA and 3 other partners with the mission to mature and industrialize the solid oxide technology developed by the CEA. In his current role as Consulting Manager, Nicolas explores the use of solid oxide technology for various industrial and chemical use cases.

Dirk Rabelink

Dirk is CEO of ULC-Energy, a nuclear development company and consultancy based in the Netherlands.

ULC-Energy’s mission is to develop nuclear energy projects and deploy small modular reactor technology in the Netherlands. It has selected the Rolls-Royce SMR as the preferred solution and has established a framework of strategic cooperation agreements with Rolls-Royce SMR, Constellation (previously Exelon) and  BAM Infra Nederland.

Nuclear energy can deliver clean electricity and heat, 24/7 without CO2, NOX or particulate emissions. Combining established nuclear technology with high temperature electrolysis is the most cost-effective way to produce and deliver baseload hydrogen locally. ULC-Energy has coordinated a project based on Rolls-Royce SMR and Topsoe SOEC technology to demonstrate the setup and relative economics.

Dirk holds a Master’s degree in Metallurgical Engineering from the Technical University of Delft was trained as an investment banker in London before joining BHP in various commercial and strategic roles. He has 25 years’ experience in energy and energy intensive industries and has worked and lived extensively in Europe, Asia and the US.

Fabio Nouchy

Mr. Fabio Nouchy, generalist nuclear engineer with a Double Degree from Politecnico di Torino and Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, is managing Tractebel’s activities around Small Modular Reactors, to which he contributes with a widespread knowledge of the advanced technologies and the current market offer. He is also helping the development of digital tools with the goal to streamline the future deployment of SMRs.

Before joining the SMR team in 2019, Mr. Nouchy has been working for Tractebel since 2012 as a contract owner, technical coordinator within the “nuclear fuel and casks” group, part of the mechanical equipment department, where he became expert on spent fuel casks and participated to several fuel-related services, including repair and handling.
