SEAROC GROUP GROWS OPERATIONS TEAM TO SUPPORT GROWING PROJECT PORTFOLIO
SeaRoc Group has announced the expansion of its Operations Team with the hiring of a Senior Communications Engineer, Project Manager and Project Planner.
The announcement follows the recent news that SeaRoc Group has been selected for its SeaPlanner marine management system to support the Merkur offshore wind farm being constructed in German waters. In addition to this, SeaRoc Group continues to support a wider portfolio of offshore wind farms and is currently working on the provision of three new remote mobile communication hubs for various sites.
In support of this developing part of the business, Paul Drysdale joins SeaRoc Group as Senior Communications Engineer to raise the company’s existing level of expertise and to facilitate technical product selection for clients, project planning, input to system design and project delivery. Paul has served with the Army’s Royal Corp of Signals and has over 28 years’ experience and a strong background in a variety of voice and data systems including radio, satellite, GSM and VoIP.
SeaRoc Group has also appointed a new Project Manager, with Michael (Mick) Cooper joining the team to support its growing portfolio of projects. Mick will oversee the effective delivery of projects for the company. He is also ex-Army Signals and holds degrees and vocational qualifications in Electronics and Telecommunications System Engineering. Mick has extensive experience within the telecommunications industry, specialising in engineering management, specifically in transmission systems and switching solutions (both fixed and mobile) as well as TETRA systems and WiFi and WiMax infrastructure.
In addition, SeaRoc Group has confirmed the permanent hire of Dafydd Bowen as a Project Planner, who will assist the Project Managers in programming the work, procuring equipment and balancing the competing priorities needed to deliver the company’s range of projects.
Nick Murphy, SeaRoc Group’s Head of Operations commented:
“As our project portfolio continues to grow, it is important for us to boost our operations team to ensure we continue to deliver our client’s requirements to the highest possible standard. With offshore projects moving further from shore and the technical requirements for data transfer, the need for maintaining effective communication is becoming more and more complex. This is why we have invested in expanding the team to boost our existing communications capabilities and to ensure that we are supporting our Project Managers in delivering the most advanced communication and personnel, vessel and equipment tracking systems we can for our clients.”
