Petrofac, the leading international service provider to the energy industry, has made a senior UK appointment to support the continued growth of its offering in the new and renewable energy sectors.

Anne Haase, who joins Petrofac as Business Development Director, will spearhead the Group’s Operations and Maintenance focus for new and renewable energy. Anne will build on Petrofac’s Operations and Maintenance (O&M) capability in Wind, Carbon Capture Usage and Storage (CCUS), Hydrogen and Waste to value.

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. Having spent 20 years in the sector, including a decade in senior O&M roles, Anne is incredibly well placed to work with our clients to translate Petrofac’s 26-year oil and gas operations track record into ultra-efficient O&M approaches for the renewables and new energy sectors.

Working alongside our New Energy leadership team Anne will continue to bring focus to our commitment to support the world’s evolving energy needs and decarbonisation targets through the management and maintenance of new and renewable energy infrastructure.

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.

Petrofac has been deploying its expertise in support of renewable energy projects since 2008. It is actively expanding its new and renewable energy portfolio and recently announced contract awards and strategic 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.
