Company overview of our experience in utilities


Our Operations Manager, Chris Douglas, has accrued 30 years as a manager working with the likes of Scottish & Southern Energy/ Scotia Gas Networks/ Morrisons / Morgan Sindall / Thames Water as well as running his own consultancy business. In his previous role, Chris and his team recently spent several months working on the Hinkley Nuclear Project in North Somerset upgrading the 33kv network.


He is also trained and qualified as a trainer to carry out all levels of EUSR (Energy Utility Skill Register)  sector. This is quite a notable achievement as Chris has now become one of only 12 qualified trainers in the whole of the UK.
