Managing Director, Dounreay Site Restoration Limited
Phil Craig is Managing Director of Dounreay Site Restoration Limited. A wholly owned subsidiary of Cavendish Dounreay Partnership, responsible for delivering what is widely recognised as the most complex nuclear closure contract in Europe on behalf of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.
After successfully completing a mechanical engineering apprenticeship, he has spent more than 20 years in highly regulated environments delivering technically challenging projects. As lead of Cavendish Nuclear’s existing power generation business he delivered a new £640 million contract to support EDF Energy’s UK reactors throughout the remainder of their operational life before moving to his Dounreay role in 2015.
Working for organisations including NNC, British Nuclear Group, AMEC and Halcrow Group before joining Babcock International, Phil has combined technical, leadership and stakeholder skills to deliver a number of high-impact change programmes.
Aside from overseeing delivery of Scotland’s largest decommissioning and environmental restoration project, Phil serves as a member of the Civil Nuclear Police Authority Board.
