Posted on 30 Apr 2013 by The Manufacturer

Westinghouse announced today that Mike Tynan, their CEO for the UK, will step down this summer to join The University of Sheffield as director for the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (Nuclear AMRC).

Yves Brachet, President for Westinghouse in Europe said: “I would like to thank Mike for the 9 years he has spent with Westinghouse where most recently he has been responsible for establishing the UK Regional Office in Central Lancashire.

“Under Mike’s leadership, Westinghouse has firmly established its UK new nuclear build ambitions, built up a nuclear decommissioning and clean-up business and implemented a historic deal with the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority to take on a 150 year lease for the Springfields Nuclear Fuel Manufacturing Facility.”

“Westinghouse is a founder member of the vitally important Nuclear AMRC and we are looking forward to continuing to work closely with Mike in his new role.”
