Renewables Push as Harrick Joins A&P

Global ship repair, conversion and marine specialist A&P Group has announced the appointment of a new Business Development Manager, as the firm pushes further into the renewables sector.   Based at A&P Group’s Tyne facility, Emma Harrick joins A&P Group after several years working in marketing and business development roles as a renewables specialist.

Tasked with expanding A&P Group’s renewables line of business, Emma will focus on leveraging the strength and breadth of the firm’s fabrication expertise, which includes a recent large-scale fabrication for the RRS Sir David Attenborough polar research vessel and a number of oil and gas and renewables projects.   David McGinley, Group Managing Director, A&P Group said: “Emma brings a great deal of industry insight, contacts and enthusiasm to this role and we look forward to really striding forward in this sector.  Such is A&P’s fabrication expertise that we want to ensure the renewables market recognises the transferrable skills, capabilities and expertise we can bring to bear on their large-scale offshore infrastructure projects.  Emma is the perfect ambassador for this line of our business and we welcome her to A&P Group.”

Emma Harrick, A&P Group’s new Renewables Business Development Manager said: “Renewable operators are under increasing pressure to build a strong UK supply chain and A&P Group is well placed and well equipped to capitalise on that.  My role will concentrate on showcasing A&P’s fabrication capabilities, commitment to project collaboration and innovation, ability to support developers in achieving their targets and importantly, returning more renewable fabrication projects to UK shores.”

A&P Group operates seven dry docks across four strategic locations in the UK and delivers global engineering excellence to the commercial shipping, marine, offshore wind, oil and gas, civil nuclear and defence industries. All facilities combine a rich heritage of marine engineering skills and experience, providing ship owners and energy companies with all the precision skills needed to complete the most demanding projects.
