Deloitte strengthens its nuclear team with a senior hire
25 July 2011
Deloitte, the business advisory firm, has appointed Chris Harrop, to head up its nuclear capital programmes team. He joins from Horizon Nuclear Power where he was a project director. Chris will lead a team of 100 nuclear experts.
Chris has unique experience of recent British nuclear new build project development and project execution. Chris worked on the first Chinese commercial nuclear programme and more recently as the project director for Horizon Nuclear Power (a joint venture between EON and RWE), in the development of their UK nuclear new build programme. Chris was also project director lead for AMEC Nuclear Business.
Daniel Grosvenor, head of Deloitte’s nuclear practice, said: “Chris’s appointment clearly shows Deloitte’s investment in our market leading nuclear industry advisory team. He adds another dimension to our ability to help clients meet the challenges faced by the nuclear industry today.”
Chris Harrop said: “I was keen to work for a successful company, with exciting projects both inside and outside the UK. The Chinese market remains the dominant market for significant energy and infrastructure projects, and investment in the Middle East is strategically important in terms of new nuclear. My role at Deloitte will be to develop and deliver new business within these growing UK and overseas markets.”
