Bolton Joins OMM as Director Ops & Maintenance

Wednesday, December 01, 2010

Subsea cable specialist, Offshore Marine Management (OMM) has strengthened its position in operation and maintenance with the recruitment of industry specialist, Stephen Bolton to the newly created position of Director of Operations and Maintenance.

Stephen has more than 10 years experience in the emerging renewable energy market, in both the onshore and offshore wind sectors. His background includes his recent work as Offshore Operations Implementation Manager at RWE Innogy where he established one of the industry’s first dedicated teams to focus on the operations and maintenance methodology for large far shore wind farms on a portfolio basis. On establishing the strategy, he was responsible for its implementation on the Gwynt y Mor and Nord See Ost projects, among others.

OMM General Manager, Rob Grimmond said Stephen’s background in offshore operations and maintenance strategy, particularly in relation to the design and specification of effective support and access assets, will add significant value to the company as it progresses its strategy to broaden the support and services it can offer to its clients.

“He brings to us a wealth of experience from a number of the major players in the UK offshore renewables industry and as such, we know he will be a huge asset to the   team as we expand our portfolio of services for the offshore renewables sector,” Grimmond said.

Bolton has been actively involved with several flagship wind energy projects across the stages of their development including North Hoyle, the UK’s first offshore wind farm, Lynn and Inner Dowsing, Barrow and recently completed Thanet.
