The global renewable energy consultancy, Natural Power, is gearing up its Irish operations in response to market requirements. As the business moves to a new larger office in Dublin to accommodate the growing staff role, new start Roger Macnaughton has been appointed as a senior ecologist.
This key hire will be pivotal to the continued expansion of the business in Ireland as Roger will lead the delivery of ecological and hydrological services, specifically building the team in this area, and making it the first dedicated ecology and hydrology team in Ireland.
This complements the existing range of services available from Natural Power including the delivery of pre-construction and construction consultancy services on renewable energy projects, typically involving taking projects from initial consent right through to final client handover of operational assets.
Marc Lamphiere, who leads the Natural Power team in Ireland, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Roger to the team, and are already seeing the benefit of our expanded, dedicated team in this area.”
Roger, a qualified and experienced ecologist with over fourteen years of professional experience in the environmental consultancy sector, joins Natural Power from Tobin Consulting Engineers in Dublin. He is experienced at working on multiple project types, including twenty five wind farm developments in Ireland, Scotland, Northern Ireland and England, and has vast experience of managing teams of ecologists on large, medium and small scale projects. He also has extensive experience of environmental impact assessment (EcIA) and appropriate assessment (AA) reporting for a broad range of projects potentially affecting terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecology. He has an additional seven years of primarily research based experience in freshwater and marine ecology.
