Independent engineering consultancy, SLPE, has appointed Nick Terry into a new role as Head of WTG Substructures.

This appointment reflects the company’s ongoing growth and continued focus on the offshore wind market, covering the design of foundations for both wind turbines and offshore substations.

Nick has come from a Principal Engineer position at Atkins, where he gained over 10 years’ experience in offshore wind and worked on a wide variety of detailed design projects for monopile and jacket structures. At SLPE, he will be tasked with oversight of all WTG projects, as well as managing, growing, and developing SLPE’s team of WTG engineers.

“Nick’s appointment underlines the talent we have built within SLPE, and I am delighted that he has been able to join us”, said Joe Hilton, Director of SLPE. “He is a proven world-class engineer with the experience and skills we need to further establish ourselves as a world-leading design house in the offshore industry. Nick will now focus his attention on further strengthening our WTG offering as we grow as a business and expand into new geographic markets”.

“The team at SLPE has a great level of expertise in offshore wind design”, said Nick. “I’m impressed with the advanced analysis capability that has been developed over the last few years, which is really pushing the boundaries in terms of structural optimisation and design efficiency. In addition, SLPE has very close working relationships with the industry leaders in both geotechnical analysis and fabrication, meaning that we are able to offer our clients world-leading designs that minimise overall costs. I’m excited about being able to contribute to SLPE’s ongoing growth, and about being able to offer our services to more projects in future”.

SLPE also recently promoted Principal Engineer, Sam Lawes, who has been with SLPE for the last 10 years, to the position of Head of OSS Substructures. Sam, together with Nick, now head up the two main divisions of offshore substructure design within SLPE.
