International energy consultancy Xodus Group has added a new principal consultant to strengthen its renewables team as the company sets its sights on a range of new offshore developments.
Dr Adrian de Andres joins Xodus from Black & Veatch where he was a principal consultant and managed several major offshore renewables projects.
Based in Edinburgh, de Andres will provide technical and commercial advice to offshore renewables developers across the wind, wave and tidal sectors.
With a PhD in civil engineering and a MsC in coastal engineering, de Andres also worked as a research engineer at the University of Edinburgh’s Institute of Energy Systems and Policy and Innovation Group.
Peter Tipler, Xodus’ Renewables Director says, “Adrian’s experience spans the wave, tidal and offshore wind sector with leading projects ranging from feasibility study, cost of energy assessment, site selection to technology due-diligence or policy advice.”
“Adrian will provide technical and commercial advice to the different players in the offshore wind, wave and tidal sector. His well-rounded experience across the offshore renewables sector complements our most recent appointments in the renewables division and strengthens our overall offering,” Tipler adds.
Xodus is exhibiting at Stand 146 at Global Offshore Wind 2019 which takes place on 25-26 June at ExCel London.
