LOC Recruits New RE Unit Director from DNV GL
LOC Group has appointed Dr R V Ahilan as the Director of the Group’s Renewables Advisory & Energy Technology unit.
Ahilan joins LOC from DNV GL, where he was executive vice president of the Renewables Advisory Division.
LOC said the new appointment will drive its ambitions to increase its scope in the renewables sector and to secure greater engineering and technology market share in the renewable, oil and gas and shipping sectors.
Ahilan will develop LOC’s skill set through investment in people, technology and the deployment of existing expertise, as the marine industry’s technological leader, presenting a range of new services and capabilities to the company’s global customer base, LOC explained. He will also address new market opportunities in renewables and will build LOC’s position within the energy technology market.
Initially, services will be delivered through the highly skilled teams already in place, but this will be augmented with new hires as the business grows, LOC said.
