Xodus Group has added a new principal consultant to strengthen its renewables team as the company sets its sights on a range of new offshore developments.
Dr Adrian de Andres joins Xodus from Black & Veatch where he was a principal consultant and managed several offshore renewables projects.
Based in Edinburgh, Adrian will provide technical and commercial advice to offshore renewables developers across the wind, wave and tidal sectors.
With a PhD in civil engineering and a MsC in coastal engineering, Adrian also worked as a research engineer at the University of Edinburgh’s Institute of Energy Systems and Policy and Innovation Group.
Peter Tipler, Xodus’ Renewables director said: “Adrian’s experience spans the wave, tidal and offshore wind sector with leading projects ranging from feasibility study, cost of energy assessment, site selection to technology due-diligence or policy advice.
“Adrian will provide technical and commercial advice to the different players in the offshore wind, wave and tidal sector. His well-rounded experience across the offshore renewables sector complements our most recent appointments in the renewables division and strengthens our overall offering.”
The company recently expanded its renewables capabilities with the addition of a dedicated advisory unit and announced a new North America offshore wind alliance with Fortune 500 science and technology leader Leidos.
