Millward joins OHT to head up WTG installation

OHT has announced that Tony Millward will join its growing team, heading up its WTG Installation Business.

Millward joins from A2Sea (now DEME Offshore) where he has held the position as Business Unit Manager for the WTG Business Unit. During his 12 years at A2Sea/ DEME, he has moved up the ranks as Project Manager, Director for the Project Department, Director of Technical Solutions, Director – Head of Tenders, and VP Commercial.

He says: ‘I am honoured to have been asked to head the WTG team at OHT. The two vessels being brought into the market by OHT from 2023 will be state of the art, next generation jack-ups that will be ready to cope with installation of larger turbines in deeper waters, and I am very excited to be involved with them from such an early stage.

‘The offshore renewables market had never been stronger. With a combination of Political backing, the advent of the 14MW + turbines, the introduction of new technologies to store the wind energy and the globalization of the industry away from its Northern European roots means that the next decade will be bright for renewable wind and OHT intend to be a key player.

‘We all have the responsibility to protect the planet and not to degrade the environment, and I am proud to have been part of the offshore wind revolution since 2002.

‘I will be building upon an already strong team at OHT, with our common goal in making OHT the go-to company and trusted partner for both WTG and foundation installation.’

Millward will commence in this new position from 1 January 2021.
