News releases 2015

Julianne Antrobus, strategy and business development director in Atkins’ nuclear division, will discuss the challenges and opportunities for UK companies working in the international nuclear sector and how to win more work overseas, at the Nuclear Industry Association (NIA) Nuclear New Build Conference on Tuesday 30 June.   

In a panel session about how companies can win work internationally, Julianne will discuss the challenges and opportunities that British companies face when looking to enter overseas markets and win more work. She will also debate what more the Government and industry can do to support the supply chain, and explore how lessons learned from decommissioning activities and new developments in nuclear technology could help to make the UK’s nuclear new build programme a success.  

Chaired by BBC presenter Steph McGovern, Julianne will be joined on the panel by Dr Colin Elcoate, vice president, business development for power at SPX Power; Dawn James, vice president for nuclear generation and defence at Amec Foster Wheeler; and Ian Crawford, managing director of Centronic. 

The 2015 conference will showcase the progress being made in the sector and provide a forum to hear from developers and the supply chain, discussing domestic and international opportunities and challenges, as well as technology updates, knowledge sharing, and training and skills.
