Graham Donaldson joins as MEH managing director from Urenco, where he was completion programme manager responsible for overseeing the £980m project to treat depleted uranium at Capenhurst.


The MEH JV includes support services specialist Altrad, and a joint venture consisting ofp Balfour Beatty Bailey, Cavendish Nuclear and Doosan Babcock.


Donaldson said: “The MEH joint venture represents a significant evolution in industry collaboration to deliver much-needed mega infrastructure projects, such as Hinkley Point C.
