ABL Group further strengthens its market-leading marine warranty survey (MWS) offering to the offshore renewables industries with new dedicated global technical director, Peter Croll, to lead the company's Renewables MWS and Transportation & Installation (T&I) business line.
In his new role, Croll will act as a global technical authority to strategically position ABL to service continued substantial growth in the offshore wind MWS sector. Peter will also lead the transition of MWS skills for offshore wind farms, to other emerging technologies, such as floating solar PV, wave and tidal energy, green hydrogen production and energy storage projects.
"MWS and marine assurance services in T&I and Operations & Maintenance (O&M) phases of offshore wind farms, interconnectors, and other green energy technologies, is a core part of ABL's business. We have amassed a world-leading track-record in offshore renewable assets assurance. Peter has been central to this development with a wealth of knowledge to share with our MWS teams as they continue to grow in Europe, Asia Pacific, Americas and elsewhere."Alex Harrison, ABL Group's Managing Director of Energy Services
International energy and marine consultancy ABL has provided marine warranty services for the T&I and O&M operations of more than 90 offshore wind farms in 17 countries since the early 2000s.
"As the race to net-zero ramps up worldwide, the volume, size and complexity of renewable energy projects has increased. Peter is tasked with aligning ABL's MWS offering with the demands of such complex projects and the rapidly changing pace of the growing renewables market."Bader Diab, ABL Group COO
Croll, based in London, has specialist experience in subsea cable laying engineering, design and MWS. He has been instrumental in building ABL's renewables MWS track record in China and Taiwan as well as in the US and Europe.
