A&P Falmouth has further illustrated its commitment to the renewable energy sector.

The company has appointed renewable energy graduate Amanda Pound to role of marine renewable services manager, through its Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) with the University of Exeter.

Drystan Jones, A&P’s business development manager, said: “The renewable energy sector is a priority for us, which is why we are linking up with the university to help us understand it and make us better positioned to meet the demand of wave developers.

“We are already heavily involved in collaboration with the Wave Hub project in Hayle, and we are delighted that Amanda has joined us at such an important time. This key appointment has helped us strengthen our team and what we can offer to the industry.”

Lars Johanning, senior lecturer at University of Exeter added: “I’m very pleased that Amanda has joined A&P in this post and I’m looking forward working with her and A&P together on this challenging task.

“This project provides further evidence of the excellence that has been established in the field of Marine Renewable Energy in the SW, and the commercial prospects that this field will bring to the South West.”
