Over the coming months, we would like to introduce you to some of the innovative, hard-working, world-class talent we are fortunate enough to have working here at SLPE. We feel immensely proud of each member of our team, all of whom work tirelessly to ensure we deliver the exceptional offshore engineering services and customer service we believe our clients deserve. With this in mind, we thought it was high time we gave them some much-deserved recognition.
This month, we have put the spotlight on Luke Jacques. Luke has now been working at SLPE for a total of five years, a milestone that we are delighted he has achieved.
Luke first joined SLPE as a Senior Engineer having gained a wealth of experience in offshore engineering, including a large breadth of expertise in offshore geotechnical and structural engineering, in previous roles. In 2019, after excelling in his position as Senior Engineer, he was promoted to the position of Principal Engineer & Bid Manager. He has a strong commercial ability coupled with excellent management and leadership skills developed through working on a variety of multidisciplinary projects with high profile clients. In the last two years, he has been instrumental in developing and shaping SLPE’s business management processes and policies and setting strategy for growth.
“There is nothing more rewarding than becoming an expert in your field”, said Luke. “It is very satisfying when people rely on you for your expertise. I am fortunate to have found a career that I love, that challenges me daily, and that gives me an opportunity to support, encourage, and work alongside other likeminded engineering specialists”.
Luke is passionate about his career and the offshore renewable industry. This is evident from his commitment to his own personal development and guiding junior colleagues to professional accreditation through his role as an ICE Mentor. We think he is a great inspiration for anyone in the offshore engineering industry looking to establish themselves within a company and progress into a senior, decision-making role. Oh, and in case that isn’t enough to impress you, he is also a keen cyclist and Champion of our Bike to Work Scheme!
If you’d like to find out more about Luke, you are welcome to find him on LinkedIn.

We are pleased to announce the recent appointment of Harry Stanley, who has joined SLPE as a Structural Engineer.
We had a great time at RenewableUK’s Global Offshore Wind exhibition last month. Always good catching up with the companies and people we work with, as well as seeing past colleagues from SLPE. It was also an opportunity to meet some of our more recent clients for the first time. All in all, excellent event with a lot to offer.
The jacket substructure for TenneT’s Hollandse Kust (noord) offshore substation, designed by SLPE, has been successfully installed at its offshore destination, approximately 18 km off the Dutch west coast.
Since SLPE’s inception back in 1986, we have gained a vast wealth of engineering experience and knowhow in the design of offshore substructures. In particular, our work has focused on the concept and detailed design of jacket and monopile substructures for a number of wind farm projects, primarily in European waters. Over the next few months we will be exploring these projects with a range of infographics, with an emphasis on project location, type, concept type, and employed technology and sustainability innovations.
In 2021 we had the privilege of delivering detailed designs for three separate offshore wind farm projects, including Saint-Brieuc, Hollandse Kust (noord) and Hollandse Kust (west Alpha). Our work included developing a distinct OSS substructure detailed design for each of the projects.

This month, our founder, Brian Smith, delivered a fascinating presentation on the history of SLPE, from its inception to present day. It was an eye-opening and enriching experience, seeing how the business has grown and evolved over the years, not to mention a compelling reminder of just how much experience SLPE has built up over the years.
We had the recent pleasure of seeing the Saint-Brieuc offshore substation jacket under construction at the Heerema Fabrication Group yard in Vlissingen. Saint-Brieuc Offshore Wind Farm is the first large-scale offshore wind farm in Brittany. SLPE was brought on board to deliver the detailed primary and secondary steel design for the jacket sub-structure and pile foundations.
