Expert service solutions and personnel provider CPower Energy has embarked on a journey to position itself at the heart of the offshore energy industry, and is celebrating this by appointing energy industry expert Martin Dronfield - director of Opergy and chairman and director of the East of England Energy Group (EEEGR) - to its board of directors.
CPower Energy is gearing up for exceptional growth in the offshore wind industry, and Martin, who has 39 years’ worth of offshore energy industry experience, has worked closely with the Colchester-based company to look at how its business can further flourish in the sector.
With an estimated $2.75 trillion being invested into offshore wind by 2050, the appointment of Martin as a non-executive director and chairman could not have come at a better time. Combining his extensive expertise from almost four decades in the offshore energy industry with CPower’s excellent track record, there are huge potential benefits as they strive to develop innovative solutions for the sector.
Martin says: “From working with Peter Jorgensen and his team at CPower Energy over the past four months, I’ve been impressed not only by the company itself but the ethos of Peter. There is an exciting multitude of opportunities to harness, and I’m looking forward to working together with CPower to maximise the benefits.
“As the industry picks up speed and begins to return to full pace, the opportunities for niche service providers such as CPower are fantastic. Following a successful initial advisory phase, I’m really looking forward to formalising my connection with CPower by joining the board and continuing to work together with Peter Jorgensen to make sure we’re doing what we do really well.”
Managing director of CPower, Peter Jorgensen, echoed his sentiments: “During Martin’s four-month advisory period with us, we developed such a strong connection that we wanted to continue our relationship by bringing Martin on board as chair of the board – and we’re delighted that he has accepted the position.
“Extending Martin’s connection to CPower will bring even greater value to us as a company, allowing us to look at how we operate from a different perspective. As we look to grow CPower and offer our expert solutions to support and grow the offshore wind sector, Martin’s insight will be invaluable in this,” he finished.
