Horizon Nuclear Power, the firm behind new nuclear projects at Wylfa Newydd and Oldbury, has appointed a new commercial director. Ivor Sheppard, who has worked in Qatar with CH2M on the country’s World Cup programme and in the United Arab Emirates as bid manager with Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation, joined Horizon in September. He was also previously a director at Turner & Townsend, covering Heathrow Terminals 5 and 3, the London 2012 Olympics, and the Shard, according to his LinkedIn profile. Programme director Carl Devlin confirmed Mr Sheppard’s appointment at the CN Summit 2016, where he outlined Horizon’s plan for delivering Wylfa Newydd, a £10bn new nuclear project in North Wales. The delivery team for the project was confirmed in May, with engineers Bechtel and Japanese energy specialists JGC and Hitachi forming a consortium with client Menter Newydd.
