Turner & Townsend has appointed Mike Pigott as a new director with responsibility for the power sector.

Living in the mountains of Snowdonia and working across the UK, Mike brings with him a wealth of experience in the industry following seven years as a Project Manager with Magnox Ltd, and a two-year secondment with the Office for Nuclear Regulation as their Nuclear New Build Programme Manager. He has a proven track record of safe, efficient and effective delivery of multi-million pound programmes in the highly regulated environments of nuclear, road, rail and oil and gas.

With Mike’s broad knowledge and appreciation of the wider industry he is uniquely positioned to offer a highly valuable contribution to the future of the energy industry.

Mike said: “This is an exciting new opportunity to deliver long - term value to the UK power market including nuclear, renewables, fossil fuel and transmission/distribution networks, through the provision of integrated professional services.

“With the UK facing an energy gap in the near future, this is a challenging time for the industry. Energy providers are investing considerable sums in order to meet both energy demand and the Government’s commitment to the low carbon agenda. This is where Turner & Townsend’s role providing a Project Controls Framework and delivering projects on cost and on time becomes ever more crucial.

“On a more personal level, the role will provide the chance to work across a wide energy remit and consult on multiple projects, and I look forward to making the most of my broad industry experience. Turner & Townsend is one of the few remaining independent construction consultancies in the industry and I couldn’t be more happy to have been welcomed into the fold.”
