horizon new 200Horizon Nuclear Power has announced the appointment of former Magnox Site Director Greg Evans as its new Operations Director for Wylfa Newydd.

Greg joins the Horizon team from Centrica Energy, where he was Director of Nuclear and Renewables for five years before becoming Director of Operational Support. Previously, Greg was Site Director at the existing nuclear power station on Anglesey and the Trawsfynydd nuclear site in Snowdonia.

In his new position, Greg will take overall responsibility for developing Horizon’s operational capability, helping prepare the organisation for generation in the first half of the 2020s. He will also perform a senior representational role for Horizon on Anglesey, liaising with local organisations, such as the Isle of Anglesey County Council and the Energy Island Programme, as well as key groups across the region, Wales, the UK, and internationally.
Greg said: “Wylfa Newydd is crucial for the UK’s energy future and I’m excited to be joining the team delivering it. Nuclear power has played a vital role in supplying the UK with secure, low-carbon electricity since the 1950s and this new development will help ensure it does so for another 60 or more years. I’m also proud to be part of a project that continues the long tradition of nuclear power on Anglesey and will be a significant contributor to its economic and social life for decades to come.”
Alan Raymant, Chief Operating Officer at Horizon Nuclear Power, said: “Greg is a highly experienced and well-respected nuclear operations leader and we are delighted to have him on board. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge and of managing large-scale energy projects and it’s a great time for Greg to join as we continue to grow as a company and increase our operational capabilities.”
