Prominent Physicist Rob Adam joins the Aveng Group 30th November 2011
The Aveng Group today, announced the appointment of Dr Rob Adam to bolster its leadership within the burgeoning power sector. Having identified the power value chain as a strategic area for growth, leading infrastructure group, Aveng is well positioned to capitalise on the global demand for power. This includes new capabilities in more environmentally-friendly renewable solutions such as wind energy, as well as alternative solutions such as geothermal and nuclear power. With government starting to roll out its energy infrastructure build programme through to 2030, South Africa is a key target market.
Dr Adam, who will join the Aveng Group on 1 February 2012, has a long and distinguished history in academia, the policy arena, and more recently, the nuclear industry. He will join Aveng from the South African Nuclear Energy Corporation (NECSA), where he has been widely recognised for turning around the organisation during his six-year tenure as CEO. His achievements include the establishment of a globally competitive manufacturing division at NECSA, as well as the establishment of skills development and apprenticeship centres, where hundreds of artisans are trained and tested annually for the broader manufacturing sector, and trebling the NECSA Group turnover during his tenure.
Prior to this he was Director-General of the Department of Science and Technology. He is the President of the Nuclear Industry Association of South Africa, and chairs the steering committee for the South African bid to host the Square Kilometre Array Radio Telescope. He is an extraordinary professor of physics at both the University of Pretoria and the University of South Africa (UNISA).

Dr Rob Adam, Necsa's CEO and Chairman of the NTP Board, concurred that NTP has shown consistent growth in revenue, profitability, product portfolio, personnel strength and markets since its inception as a commercial division of Necsa. He added that after 12 years as NTP's distributor of sealed Ir-192 sources in international markets and growing the business substantially in this time, Gammatec is now part of the NTP subsidiary family, which comprises of AEC Amersham (Pty) Ltd (100%), NTP Logistics (Pty) Ltd (51%) and Cyclotope (Pty) Ltd (100%).
...
Dr Adam said this is a change in shareholding, and not a change in process or operations. Strategically, the partnership will enhance the NTP-Gammatec position in the global NDT environment. It will undoubtedly allow for expansion of operations into certain areas and to further develop the product exposure in existing territories.
Dr Adam welcomed Gammatec and its highly experienced, skilled and motivated team to the NTP fold and, on behalf of NTP, said that the organisation looks forward to an exciting time developing the business into becoming the World's No 1 NDT Equipment and Sealed Source Supplier!
...
Dr Adam congratulated NTP Radioisotopes for strategically following its mandate. He said that one hopes to see more of these kinds of mergers flourish!

Former South African Nuclear Energy Corporation chief executive Rob Adam will take over as "director designate" of the project, which will see part of the world's largest radio telescope built on African soil, the department of science and technology said on Monday.
...
Adam, who is currently a group executive in charge of the nuclear energy portfolio at Aveng Group, will be as director designate for the SKA South Africa Project from April 1 to December 31 next year, and then will become director after that for a period of five years.
Adam was previously the chief executive of Necsa, and before that was the director-general in the department of science and technology from 1999 to 2006. "Dr Adam is not new to the SKA South Africa Project; he spearheaded it in its early days when he was at the Department of Science and Technology, and is currently the Chair of the South African SKA Steering Committee," Pandor said.
"The Steering Committee provides strategic advice and leadership to the SKA SA Project, and there will therefore be a seamless transition under his leadership.
"I have full confidence in Dr Adam and believe that he will ensure the success of the SKA Project in Africa, and the recognition of the MeerKAT telescope and the African Very Long Baseline Interferometry Network as key science, technology and innovation projects for the continent."
