Experience: Project Management
Over the years I have managed some major projects in Eastern Europe, often involving large multinational teams working in the nuclear field, funded by the European Union
or other funding bodies.
These projects have involved the use of standard project managemnet techniques to complete the project on time and within budget. They have also involved a high level of
technical knowledge and expertise. However, the international component has required diplomatic and social skills not often required by other projects.
The following are examples of such projects:
- Cernavoda Unit 1 Periodic Safety Review (2008 to Present).
- Assistance to Bulgarian Nuclear Regulatory Agency (2006 to 2008). This project was funded by the EU under the PHARE programme and was
worth just over &0080;1m
- Spent nuclear fuel management in NW Russia (1999 to 2001). This project was to begin construction of a storage facility for spent naval nuclear
fuel in NW Russia. Funding ws from various sources and i acted as project manager for the EU TACIS programme.
- International RBMK Safety Review (1992 to 1996)
I was project manager for this international review of the safety of RBMK Reactors following the Chernobyl accident. The project involved 180 people
in 11 countries and was worth over &0080;6m from the EU TACIS programme.
