Petrofac has appointed a new head of offshore wind operations and maintenance to bolster its offering in new energies.

Phaedra Pritchard, formerly of Semco Maritime and Centrica, has more than 14 years’ experience in the industry, working in O&M, project management and business support positions.

Her appointment comes as energy services giant Petrofac seeks to play a leading role in helping the UK reach its target to quadruple offshore wind capacity to 40GW by 2030.

The company has 3,000 workers supporting offshore energy assets and boasted a 10-year track record in offshore wind, including work on the huge Seagreen project in Scotland off the Angus coast.

John Pearson, chief operating officer for Petrofac New Energy Services, said: “Working alongside our O&M team, Phaedra will play a key role in leveraging our existing strengths and capabilities to grow our presence in the offshore wind market.

“Not only does she have a wealth of industry experience, but her extensive knowledge of working in the sector means that she is perfectly positioned to help support our goals for the region and beyond.

“We have been deploying our expertise in support of renewable energy projects since 2008 and our teams are expertly placed to leverage this experience and help advance the energy transition.”

Ms Pritchard will be based in Grimsby, recognising the growth in around Humber and Yorkshire in offshore wind and growing demand for Petrofac’s capabilities in the area.
