PES sat down with Darren McQuillan, Vice President, Global Business Development, at Bardex Corporation, to find out more about the company’s positioning as an engineering solution provider and how it brings together all aspects of project management, execution, contract management, and everything else associated with floating offshore wind.
PES: Thanks for taking the time to speak with us Darren. Can we begin with a brief introduction to Bardex and what you do?
How has your role developed in recent years, as the sector itself has grown and moved further offshore and into deeper waters?
Darren McQuillan: I joined Bardex in January of this year to support its global business development for offshore wind. I’m doing a lot of mentoring and coaching within key industry working groups and renewable energy groups in the UK.
The focus is on educating them about proven solutions from other market segments that apply to floating offshore wind (FLOW). Solutions used in Bardex lifting and mooring projects, for example, apply to FLOW industrialisation and installation.
