I am Wood Group’s Environment Team Leader, Chartered Environmentalist and Chartered Scientist with 15 years’ experience across the public and private sectors. I have managed a wide range of environmental projects and have particular experience in EIA, planning, permitting, environmental management systems (EMS) and environmental auditing. I have experience across a wide range of sectors and technologies including solar PV, hydro, onshore and offshore wind power, O&G, thermal power, cross-country pipelines and other infrastructure projects. I have a comprehensive understanding of international lending standards and have worked on behalf of the world’s leading project financers. I was the author of the revised World Bank Group sector specific EHS guidelines for wind energy and provided environmental input into the IFC’s revised solar guidebook: Utility-Scale Solar Photovoltaic Power Plants: A Project Developer’s Guide. Some examples of recent projects include the ESIA of four solar PV projects and one wind project in Kenya, ESIA of a 10MW solar PV project in Uganda, on-site auditing of a 50 MW solar PV in Mali, feasibility and site assessment of a solar PV project in Zambia, E&S auditing of a solar PV project in Mozambique, E&S due diligence of an LNG facility in Lagos, ESIA for two proposed wind farm developments in Malawi, ESIA for two 50 MW wind farms in Mongolia and environmental assessment of four solar PV projects in the UK. I am highly experienced in undertaking environmental auditing and site surveys throughout the world, with recent examples in China, Egypt, El Salvador, Germany, India, Ireland, Jamaica, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Lithuania, Nigeria, Mali, Mongolia, Philippines, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Turkey, Uganda, United Kingdom and Zambia.
