Arup has appointed Saygin Oytan to head its offshore wind team in the U.S.
As an associate principal in the Boston office, Oytan will lead strategic business development initiatives aimed at expanding Arup’s presence in the U.S. offshore wind market.
“We are anticipating major growth in the offshore wind market in the US in coming years,” said Brian Swett, Leader of Arup’s Boston office.
“With Sy at the helm as our new Offshore Wind Leader in the Americas, I’m confident that Arup’s offshore wind business will continue to grow and mature in lockstep with the market, providing more services and more value to our clients across North America.”
According to Arup, Oytan brings nearly two decades of experience managing the development and construction of international offshore and onshore wind projects.
His most recent position was as the Director of Offshore Wind for the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA).
Oytan also started up and led Nord Renewable Energy Consulting in Europe to provide project development, owner’s and lender’s engineering, and transaction advisory services for offshore and onshore wind projects.
“I’m excited to join the Arup team that has been working diligently to support our international and national clients in offshore wind energy development,” Oytan said.
“The total size of state commitments to offshore wind is in the range of 26,000 MW to be operational by 2035. Arup’s global expertise in complex and multi-disciplinary projects is needed in this nascent market.”
