A&P Falmouth takes on a full time marine renewables business development manager, Amanda Pound

A&P Falmouth, is positioned on the south coast of the UK in one of the world’s largest natural deep-water harbours. Falmouth is the largest ship-repair complex in the UK, with three large graving docks and extensive alongside berthing, providing facilities for a wide range of marine business.

The company’s reputation in the marine renewable energy sector is continuing to grow, due to its work maintaining and converting vessels and partnering device developers. The last two years have seen rapid growth in this market and A&P must ensure it is well placed to meet the needs of the industry.
 With this in mind the company made the new appointment.

Amanda Pound joined the company in 2010 as part of a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) with Exeter University, just days after finishing her degree. After working for two years as Marine Renewable Services Manager at A&P, she has now been appointed Marine Renewables Business Development Manager.

She said: “It is a really exciting time for marine renewable energy in the South West, with the recently formed South West Marine Energy Park (SWMEP) and the first wave device deployed at the Falmouth Bay test Site (FabTest), the sector is beginning to move forward.
