Ørsted, Simply Blue Group and Subsea7 have appointed Hugh Yendole as development director for Salamander, a floating offshore wind joint venture. Hugh has over 25 years’ experience in the wind industry. He has been involved in delivering and managing multiple offshore and onshore developments across the UK, Europe and the US such as Ørsted’s London Array, Burbo and Walney Extensions, and Hornsea 1.
Hugh joins the project from within Ørsted, where he remains employed, and has spent 12 years across various key roles, most recently as director and asset manager for Ørsted’s west coast UK offshore wind farms. Starting at the end of summer, Hugh will be responsible for the overarching delivery of the project, managing commercial negotiations and developing stakeholder relationships. Prior to Hugh Yendole’s appointment, Salamander was led by Huw Bell, who successfully acted as a caretaker for the project and will remain on board to oversee its delivery. The 100 MW Salamander floating offshore wind farm will be located 35km off the coast of Peterhead, Scotland.
