International marine and engineering consulting firm, LOC, has appointed Ian Cummins as their new Energy Projects Development Director. Ian, who formerly worked with BP as Head of Engineering, will be focusing on the oil, gas and renewable markets in order to develop new engineering opportunities to help progress the business.

“Ian’s track record and the depth and breadth of his expertise in developing large-scale offshore energy projects speaks for itself, and we’re delighted to welcome him to LOC,” said RV Ahilan, Joint Chief Executive Officer at LOC Group and Group Director of LOC Renewables. “With the scale of offshore turbines and wind farms continuing to grow exponentially, transferring the skills and experience gained in the oil and gas industries will be invaluable to maintaining this rapid pace of development and meeting the challenges this growth presents. Ian’s longstanding experience will be a great asset to our clients undertaking significant projects in both sectors.”

In a statement, Ian said: “I am excited to join LOC working with highly talented, specialist engineers. I look forward to utilising my wide-ranging management and technical experience in oil and gas to progress innovation in this sector and further expand LOC’s offering into the renewables market.”
