New Delhi: Rolls-Royce has appointed Atul Tandon as Executive Vice-President, Civil Nuclear-India as a significant step towards positioning itself as a strong player in the evolving Indian civil nuclear industry.

In his new role, Atul will focus on developing customer relationships and growing Rolls-Royce presence in the Indian nuclear power market. Atul has extensive experience in the nuclear industry and the energy sectors, including working with Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited for 16 years.

"The civil nuclear industry represents an important market and Rolls-Royce is keen to support the country’s ambitious nuclear energy development programme. Atul’s appointment reinforces our commitment towards that strategic intent," said Anil Shrikhande President, Rolls-Royce India.

"Rolls-Royce has a long and proud history partnering with India over more than 75 years. As India continues to rapidly develop we have technology and systems which can offer effective solutions. We are today reinforcing our commitment to this important market with the appointment of Atul Tandon, a seasoned industry professional, who will bring a wealth of civil nuclear knowledge and leadership to our expanding local team," said Lawrie Haynes, Rolls-Royce President-Nuclear.

Rolls-Royce delivers wide-ranging capabilities across the nuclear cycle from concept design to through-life and life-extension. Its nuclear expertise spans high value engineering and manufacturing, licensing, project and supply chain management.

From licensed production to engineering services and component manufacture the business has expanded in the last decade supported by mutually beneficial partnerships with companies in India including Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), L&T, TCS and QuEST.

In April 2010, Rolls-Royce and Larsen & Toubro Limited, India’s leading engineering and construction company, signed a Memorandum of Understanding for cooperation to effectively address the projected need for light water reactors (LWR) in India and internationally. LWR technology is in more than sixty per cent of civil nuclear power plants operating worldwide.

Atul Tandon is a senior executive with 16 years’ experience in the nuclear industry working for the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited and has also held a number of senior roles with major corporations including Wärtsilä India Ltd. He holds a Bachelor of Chemical Engineering from the National Institute of Technology in Raipur, India and an Executive MBA from SP Jain Institute of Management Research in Mumbai, India.
