NTS was launched in April 2021, following the NDA’s decision to bring together Direct Rail Services (DRS), International Nuclear Services (INS) and Pacific Nuclear Transport Ltd (PNTL) into a single transport organisation. It supports the NDA’s mission to clean up the UK’s nuclear legacy, while also using its specialist transport and logistics expertise to help customers and partners around the world.
NDA Chief Executive, David Peattie, said:
NTS plays a vital part in the NDA’s mission to clean up the UK’s earliest nuclear sites, as well as supporting the wider nuclear sector. Wanda Goldwag’s experience of leading complex public and private sector organisations will be invaluable as NTS develops and grows its world-leading transport and logistics capability.
I would like to thank Kate Ellis for her excellent leadership as Chair of both International Nuclear Services and Direct Rail Services. She has been instrumental in providing the strong foundations from which we have created Nuclear Transport Solutions.
As Chair of the NTS Board, Wanda will be responsible for leading and shaping the strategic direction of the newly established organisation. She will assume the role from July 2021 when Kate Ellis steps down as Chair.
Commenting on her appointment, Wanda Goldwag said:
It’s a real honour for me to become Chair of NTS and oversee the important role it plays in delivering specialist transport services in support of NDA’s strategy, and on behalf of customers in the UK and around the world.
It’s an exciting time to join NTS and I’m looking forward to using my experience to help it achieve its aim to be the leading global provider of nuclear transport solutions.
