Offshore Wind Consultants Names APAC Head

Offshore Wind Consultants has appointed Tom Whittle to the newly created role of Asia Pacific regional director.

Whittle, previously OWC’s country manager in Taiwan, has worked as a project director, project manager and package manager on a number of offshore wind projects in the UK, Europe and Asia, the company said.

The APAC regional director is also OWC’s floating wind lead and sits on the floating committee of the World Forum Offshore Wind (WFO). 

“With Asia Pacific countries’ massive energy transition investment plans in both floating and fixed offshore wind, this is a highly exciting region,” said Whittle.

“I am glad that OWC continues its strategy of building up presence and competence close to where our clients have their projects and we look forward to reinforcing our presence in the years to come.”

In 2018, OWC opened its first Asia Pacific office in Taiwan. Today, the company also has offices in South Korea and Japan and has been involved in project developments in Vietnam.
