Andrews joins CWind from Siemens Energy where he started his career as an apprentice technician 25 years ago and progressed through increasingly senior roles culminating in the role of Head of Installation Technicians and Site Management Group Siemens UK, in the wind energy division
which he held for the last four years. In this role he led the development of a UK infrastructure to support the recruitment and building of a high performing team of technicians, operational managers and back office staff, servicing all of Siemens UK offshore wind construction projects. As part of that role he was also responsible for developing the wind turbine competency framework (WTCF) defining global training requirements alongside the Siemens Global Training Team.
This new division reflects the growth in demand for CWind’s services within the O&M phase of the offshore assets’ life. And by creating an area of the business that has sole focus on O&M services, CWind said it will be able to offer its customers value enhancing integrated solutions that will minimize outage down time whilst giving the highest levels of customer service and support.
