An essential part of any capital project is the late-life stage and the eventual removal and decommissioning of facilities, and renewables are no exception. In the spring of 2019 the first offshore wind farm built in UK waters, two turbines near Blyth, was dismantled.

Presentation
Following the AGM, a presentation will be held on decommissioning offshore wind farms.

Decommissioning assets involves dozens of major operators and contractors plus hundreds of other stakeholders; and like the decommissioning of offshore oil & gas platforms, will involve new innovations and new technologies. In this presentation we will explore some of the challenges surrounding the removal of wind farms and what this new part of the industry may bring in the future.

Christopher is an associate consultant and project manager at PetroMall. He is an experienced chartered engineer and operations manager having worked for the last 15 years in the North Sea and Norwegian Continental Shelf.

During his time at Saipem UK Limited he worked on one of the North Sea's first major decommissioning project for the Frigg field and MCP-01 in 2007-2008, requiring the removal of four steel jacket structures and six topside platforms. He was formerly business development manager and strategic project manager with Reef Subsea, an offshore construction and survey company which performed key parts of the Fife, Fergus, Flora and Angus (FFFA) decommissioning projects. He also spent four years at Statoil ASA as a project manager for various offshore developments.

He is currently consulting in the offshore energy space, of which decommissioning is playing an increasingly large part.
