SPSL Names New Business Development Manager

Scour Prevention Systems Ltd appointed Tim Smith as business development manager to their growing team.

Tim was previously sales manager at leading offshore wind industry service provider CWind. Prior to that he was business development manager at Fendercare, where he played a leading role in developing the company’s activities in the renewables sector, leading to the establishment of the James Fisher Renewables division.

John Balch, executive chairman of Scour Prevention Systems, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Tim to the team. His skillset will perfectly complement the expertise of our existing team and allow us to accelerate commercial sales of our field-proven product.”

Last year the company successfully completed offshore demonstrations of their innovative scour solution on E.ON’s Scroby Sands wind farm off the Norfolk coast. Scour Prevention Mats are now endorsed by E.ON and commercially available to the global offshore market.

Tim Smith said: “I have high hopes for the future of SPSL and can’t wait to get started in my new role. I’m really excited to start working with the company at such a key stage of its development and hope to make a real impact on developing new opportunities for the company.”

Tim will represent SPSL on the company’s exhibition stand at the Southern North Sea SNS2014 conference on the March 5th and 6th at the Norfolk Showground. SNS2014 is the most important conference for the offshore energy industry in the East of England and is set to be the largest conference delivered by East of England Energy Group.

SPL, based at OrbisEnergy in Lowestoft, has developed an innovative and patented solution to remediate and eliminate scour around offshore structures and over cables, which is recognised as a significant problem within the offshore energy industry.

Scour Prevention Mats consist of a matrix of end-of-life vehicle tyres which stabilise the seabed to stop scour. Scour is caused by the flow of water speeding up around an object, causing a hole to form in the seabed around the object’s base, which gets progressively deeper. If left unchecked this can affect a structure’s integrity and damage its foundations.
