Petrofac has made a senior UK appointment to support the continued growth of its renewables offering.
Anne Haase, who joins the energy services giant as business development director, will spearhead the group’s operations and maintenance (O&M) focus for green energy.
She will build on Petrofac’s O&M capability in wind, carbon capture and storage (CCS), hydrogen and waste to value.
Ms Haase said: “The energy sector is entering a new era and Petrofac has an incredible portfolio of experience to support that transition. I’m thrilled to join its growing, forward-thinking team, who are already using their knowledge to deliver ‘first of a kind’ projects with global applicability. I’m so looking forward to collaborating with them, our partners and clients to drive further progress in support of a lower carbon future.”
Since 2008, Petrofac has been deploying its services in support of renewable energy.
Recently it announced contract awards and strategic partnerships to support CCS and hydrogen project in the UK, as well as overseas.
Last year, Petrofac was appointed to design, supply and install the high voltage alternating current (HVAC) onshore and offshore substations for the Seagreen offshore wind farm, off the coast of Angus, Scotland.
Jonathan Carpenter, vice president of Petrofac’s new energy services business said: “By 2030, operational expenditure in Wind will be as large as it is today in oil and gas. Having spent 20 years in the sector, including a decade in senior O&M roles, Anne is incredibly well placed to work with our clients to translate Petrofac’s 26-year oil and gas operations track record into ultra-efficient O&M approaches for the renewables and new energy sectors.
“Working alongside our New Energy leadership team Anne will continue to bring focus to our commitment to support the world’s evolving energy needs and decarbonisation targets through the management and maintenance of new and renewable energy infrastructure.”
