Renewable energy and marine surveyor, Sean Murphy, has recently taken on the pivotal role of Renewables Manager to ABL in North America, where he will drive the expansion of ABL’s expert energy and marine consultancy to support clients in the development of the USA’s renewable energy targets.

“2024 is poised to be a big year for US renewable energy, marked by offshore wind leasing processes in New Jersey, Central Atlantic, Oregon, Maryland, Maine and the Gulf of Mexico. With the increasing number of projects in the offshore renewable space, there’s a corresponding rise in challenges from a marine perspective and greater demand on the marine supply chain. At ABL, we excel in assisting clients in comprehending their marine value chain and mitigating risks at every stage of their projects, thereby ensuring the long-term viability of their assets.”Sean Murphy, Renewables Manager, ABL USA.

ABL’s comprehensive offering to the renewable energy sector includes marine advisory services, ports and harbors consultancy, marine assurance & risk services, and marine warranty surveying (MWS). Its US operations are also complemented by sister companies in the market, OWC – the renewable energy consultants, and Longitude – the engineering consultants.

“With OWC and Longitude, we have a combined track-record across more than 17 US offshore wind projects in various stages of development, as well as experience in floating solar (FPV), wave-energy conversion (WEC), and renewable interconnector projects in the region. Leveraging this wealth of experience, coupled with our established reputation as marine consultants, equips us with an unparalleled understanding of the challenges and opportunities from a marine perspective, from project feasibility to construction to operations.” John Walker, Managing Director ABL New York, and Maritime ABL Americas.

In his new capacity, Murphy will work closely with respective colleagues at OWC and Longitude, to provide a comprehensive technical offering to support renewable energy stakeholders across the entire development lifecycle of a project or asset.

ABL USA operates from four primary locations: New York, Boston, Houston and Fort Lauderdale. The local operations are further bolstered by its coast-to-coast marine surveyor footprint, covering Miami, Seattle, San Francisco, New Orleans, Halifax, and St. John’s.

ABL is part of ABL Group – the Oslo-listed leading independent consultancy group, providing energy, marine, engineering and digital solutions to drive safety and sustainability across energy and oceans.
