A deal for not one but two EPRs was concluded this week in China. It was known for quite a long time, procurements were already ordered well in advance and certain teams composed in that regard.
It is also rumored that South Africa, Koeberg, signed for a unit.
By contract I'm due to stay until December 2008. One year. It'll be there just as quickly as this one year and a half here flew.
The picture ahead is still rather blurish. There are pluses and no real minuses (one being admittedly the absence of communication with locals something I'm certainly partly responsible for since I didn't invest time in learning Finnish).
I get along well with colleagues, I like my job as I've really been given time to learn new tools I've certain will be beneficial in the long term. I'm also given opportunities to develop, this time for real, in a field I had been toying with for years, as a hobby, and almost had given up since it looked like a dead end back then.
This job was a clean slate, for me to do whatever I felt like doing. I couldn't ask for better.
There's also Flamanville which is to start very soon. Everybody seems interested in working abroad so Normandy, in comparison… It is contagious I guess.
I'm a bit confused. Grass is still greener elsewhere.
