The consulting company's Ragna Schmidt-Haupt leads a drive focused on the area's renewable energy services' sector.

Ragna’s extensive experience in the solar industry leaves her well positioned to head-up GL Garrad Hassan’s activities in Singapore and she is already leading commercial consultancy assignments for investor clients in the region. In her previous role, she was responsible for equity sales of utility-scale solar power plants built in Europe and Canada at solar project developer Enfinity Germany. 

Singapore has been targeted as an area for further expansion due to the country’s status as a regional hub for investors, banks, manufacturers and project developers. Its strategic location and favourable tax and administrative regime are cementing its role as a platform for renewable energy investment in South East Asia.

The moves comes as all of the GL Group’s business units in Singapore have been brought together in one location to leverage the multi-disciplinary capabilities of Germanischer Lloyd, GL Noble Denton and GL Garrad Hassan. Having one integrated office will allow the GL Group to offer its clients a full scope of classification, engineering, oil & gas, renewables (wind, solar, wave & tidal) and software services from a single location.

Dr Andrew Garrad, non-executive Chairman of GL Garrad Hassan, commented: “Having experienced a surge in demand for our technical and strategic services in Asian markets, we are pleased to establish our presence in Singapore with the appointment of Ragna. Her track record in solar investment will undoubtedly be a strong asset in this rapidly developing market.”
