TRAC appoints senior manager to head up its Renewable Services division.

TRAC continues its strong commitment to the global energy transition and is delighted to announce the consolidation of its renewables experience within a new division, TRAC Renewable Services.

TRAC Renewable Services is headed up by Joel Telling. An experienced energy sector leader, Joel started as a site technician in the late 1990s before graduating to senior management positions, first within the global Oil & Gas industry and for the last decade in the Renewable Energy services market.

Our vision is for TRAC, already market-leading in other global sectors, to become synonymous with best-in-class delivery of services to the renewable power generation and transmission industries.

Under the TRAC Renewable Services brand, we provide seamless and innovative front-end solutions for Generators, Operators, OEMs and EPCIs requiring inspection, repair, maintenance and engineering (IRM/E) services.

A flexible, “right-sized” approach allows us to deliver projects either wholly in-house or in collaboration with trusted partners.

O&M and IRM requirements can be serviced either individually or within a package tailored to Balance of Plant (BoP), Generation (WTG) or Transmission (OSS/OnSS) assets.

The new business unit has established a programme for phased delivery of services commencing with immediate effect in 2021.

Whilst developing a more holistic approach for 2022 and beyond we are ready to support clients now that have assets under construction or that require corrective maintenance (structural, coating, cleaning), life extension or Balance of Plant inspections.

“We’re delighted to welcome Joel to the team at TRAC to head up our Renewable Services division.  He brings a wealth of experience from the Renewable Energy market and proven delivery expertise. As we move forward with the global energy transition, we believe that a strong combination of political, environmental, and economic factors now marks the start of a new phase of maturity in the renewable industry, both here in the UK and globally – and a springboard for the future.”

Daniel Hawthorn, Managing Director, TRAC

“TRAC has been a client, partner and supporter in various enterprises over the past few years – we share a vision of what customer service and delivery should look like. Having been an enthusiastic advocate of the energy transition for around a decade – the experience that traditional service businesses can leverage to accelerate progress; the innovation and vibrancy of pure-play renewables companies – to be able to help build out the offering at such an established group is a privilege”.

TRAC Shortlisted for Gold Award

TRAC has been shortlisted in the Innovation category of this year’s Press and Journal Energy Voice Gold Awards for its industry-leading TracTec technology. The TracTec is set to transform offshore inspection, cleaning and repair solutions within the notoriously inaccessible splash zone.

In its simplest terms, TracTec is a large-scale clamp, which is remotely deployed from any platform to enable the safe inspection, maintenance and repair of all types, sizes and configurations of caissons and conductors, negating the need for divers, ROVs and DSVs.

The Gold Awards  are held in association with Aberdeen Standard Investments (ASI) to celebrate excellence in the UK energy sector.

The innovation accolade – sponsored by Balmoral Group – is aimed at the people behind projects securing the industry’s future. The winner will be announced at a ceremony  at the Chester Hotel, Aberdeen, on September 6.

ASI chairman Martin Gilbert said: “Congratulations to all of the finalists who have been shortlisted.
