Alan joined Banks Renewables team as a senior project manager in October 2019.

Alan is an experienced project manager with a comprehensive 14 year career in the UK and Scandinavian renewable energy industries.

He has a background in engineering, technical sales and project management which give him a wide skill base to call upon when dealing with the complex challenges presented by Mill Rig Wind Farm.

Alan is keen to see both the positive economic and environmental impact on shore wind.

Alan is involved in local community groups to reduce waste and litter picking.
