Wind Energy – Appointment Salamander
Ørsted, Simply Blue Group and Subsea7 have appointed Hugh Yendole as development director for Salamander, a pioneering floating offshore wind joint venture.
With over 25 years’ experience in the wind industry, Hugh has played a crucial role in delivering and managing multiple ground-breaking offshore and onshore developments across the UK, Europe and the US.
Most notable examples include Ørsted’s London Array, Burbo and Walney Extensions, and Hornsea 1. His expertise spans senior positions in project development, engineering, asset and technology management.
Hugh joins the project from within Ørsted, where he remains employed, and has spent 12 years across various key roles, most recently as director and asset manager for Ørsted’s west coast UK offshore wind farms.
Starting at the end of summer, Hugh will be responsible for the overarching delivery of the project, managing commercial negotiations and developing stakeholder relationships.
