Sir Terry Morgan has been appointed chair of CGN UK’s advisory board, three months after leaving his posts as chairman at High Speed 2 and Crossrail.
Former government official Sir Brian Bender will join Morgan on CGN’s advisory board which will meet quarterly.
CGN is currently involved in four joint ventures with EDF including nuclear projects at Hinkley Point C, Sizewell C and Bradwell B.
Morgan left his roles at Crossrail and HS2 in December after growing speculation that he faced the axe.
In the months since he has played out a public spat with London mayor Sadiq Khan with both blaming the other for covering up Crossrail delays.
CGN UK chief executive Zheng Dongshan said: “Appointing an advisory board is an important step in the process of CGN investing in new energy projects in the UK.
“Having people of the calibre of Sir Terry and Sir Brian, and their future colleagues, as a sounding board will help us to ensure that we take even closer account of our stakeholders and are able to answer whatever questions they may raise.
And the advisory board will help us deliver a legacy of long term partnerships including with local communities, as well as skills and high value jobs.”
