Keynote Close Up - Robert Holtom
Rob Holtom is Technical Director at MOCEAN Professional Ltd, and has been responsible for delivering challenging offshore engineering and construction projects in West Africa, the Caspian Sea, Middle East and most recently in the UK.
Throughout his career, Rob has established a record of technical excellence across a broad spectrum of disciplines; providing services to his clients through the design and implementation of safe, profitable and high-quality projects. Making the most of the opportunities available to him, Rob has reacted quickly to the changing markets, adopting the latest technical developments, planning and environmental guidance, and legislation to ensure that his teams lead the way in successful and responsible project delivery.
In 2006 Rob gained an Integrated Master of Oceanography from Southampton University before starting his career in the offshore sector. After several years spent delivering offshore projects around the world, in 2013 Rob co-founded a fully funded Shale Gas Operator ahead of the UK’s 14th licensing round.
With continued challenges to the burgeoning sector ensuring that an acceptable return on investment was unlikely; his experience enabled him to transfer into the UK Nuclear Sector, providing guidance to Horizon Nuclear Power’s proposed ABWR site in Anglesey, North Wales.
Within this evolving industry, Rob has been able to integrate the safety and quality culture of the Nuclear sector with the high standards established offshore; and despite the challenging backdrop of heavy regulatory compliance and complex physical environments, Rob has achieved the high standards of safety, environmental responsibility, technical innovation and operational performance expected for the offshore construction components of the UK’s Nuclear builds.
Rob is currently responsible for the delivery of marine construction projects at EDF’s Hinkley Point C Nuclear New Build; his talk will look at the major issues and talking points surrounding the marine construction projects that comprise the UK’s first nuclear construction for 25 years.
Could this be the most challenging project so far?
