The Scottish engineering and advisory consultancy Xodus Group has appointed Peter Tipler as the Renewables Director with an aim to help drive growth across the sector.
According to Xodus, Tipler has been with the company for almost ten years working at a number of positions in the renewable energy, environment and decommissioning divisions.
“I’m honoured to take on the role and hope my experience and knowledge of the projects over the years will allow Xodus to build up the capabilities right across the renewables industry – from wave and tidal to offshore wind,” Tipler said.
“We have a long history of working in the sector. Our view is that offshore renewable energy is a fundamental part of the global future energy mix. We aren’t waiting for it to happen, we are making it happen.”
Xodus partnered with Green Marine in 2017 to launch an integrated service for the maintenance of offshore renewable assets by combining its integrity management software tool XAMIN to capture and monitor live data from offshore assets with Green Marine’s physical offshore inspection and repair services.
Earlier this year, the Aberdeen-based consultancy firm announced that Subsea 7 is acquiring a 60% holding in the company from Chiyoda Corporation, which is retaining a 40% stake as a joint venture partner.
