Innosea, a marine renewable energy expert, is expanding its European footprint to include the Spanish market.
Jordi Serret, a senior consultant located in Barcelona, will lead the Spanish operation.
Serret is a geotechnical and geophysical engineer with a focus on floating offshore wind turbines.
He also has a lot of experience with floating solar and energy storage engineering and design.
The new office expands the parent business ABL Group’s Iberian presence, which already includes a presence in Lisbon, Portugal.
Hakim Mouslim, Innosea managing director, said “Following our expansion across the French renewable energy market, transitioning our expertise to support our neighbour, Spain, in reaching its climate goals is the next logical step, especially considering the country’s clear intentions to move into offshore wind power.”
“Our team already includes several Spanish consultants and engineers that are well acquainted with the local market.”
“This new presence means we can provide even more tailored local support to clients on the ground.”
William Cleverly, ABL Group global MD for Renewables, said “We are excited to firm up our commitment to the region as it looks to accelerate its journey towards net-zero, and Jordi has the perfect profile mix of geoscience and naval architecture to provide the early-stage support to clients in this market.”
