Energy industry services provider Petrofac has made a senior UK appointment to support the growth of its offering in the renewable energy sectors like hydrogen, carbon capture and wind.

UK’s Petrofac appointed Anne Haase as the new business development director. She has been given the task of leading the company’s operations and maintenance focus for new and renewable energy.

Haase is to build on Petrofac’s Operations and Maintenance (O&M) capability in wind, carbon capture usage and storage (CCUS), hydrogen and waste to value.

Petrofac said it is actively expanding its new and renewable energy portfolio. It recently announced partnerships to support carbon capture and storage and hydrogen projects in the UK and internationally.

The company was also appointed in 2020 to design, supply and install the high voltage alternating current (HVAC) onshore and offshore substations for the Seagreen offshore wind farm project in Scotland.

Jonathan Carpenter, vice president of Petrofac’s New Energy Services business said: “By 2030, operational expenditure in Wind will be as large as it is today in oil and gas. ”

Haase said: “The energy sector is entering a new era and Petrofac has an incredible portfolio of experience to support that transition. I’m thrilled to join its growing, forward-thinking team, who are already using their knowledge to deliver ‘first of a kind’ projects with global applicability. I’m so looking forward to collaborating with them, our partners and clients to drive further progress in support of a lower-carbon future.”
