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).
