Natural Power has appointed Rick Campbell as head of offshore to lead the development of the offshore business and explore new opportunities both within the UK and internationally. He is joined by Erlend Christiansen as Offshore Consents Lead in Ireland.
Having worked in renewable energy since 2006, Rick joins from Scottish Power Renewables and has been involved in offshore wind for more than ten years. He has experience of working across all stages of offshore wind farm consent activities from site identification to post-consent compliance, with a particular focus on stakeholder engagement. He has worked in a number of roles on the East Anglia offshore wind farm projects, most recently leading the stakeholder and landowner engagement teams across the portfolio, and prior to that, had responsibility for consent compliance across all work packages on two offshore wind farms at pre-construction and construction stages. As Erlend Christiansen joins the team in Ireland, his new role underpins Natural Power’s commitment to developing offshore wind projects in support of meeting Ireland’s renewable energy targets and expected demand for electricity.
