Masdar engineers for UK wind farm project

Abu Dhabi, June 14, 2011

Two Emirati engineers at Masdar Power, one of the five integrated units of Masdar, are being seconded to one of the world’s leading renewable energy projects in the UK.

Naser Al Yammahi, currently project engineer at Masdar Power, and Mohamed Al Khawaja, currently senior electrical engineer at Masdar Power, are being offered new roles as project engineer and contracts engineer at London Array, the offshore wind farm project currently under construction in the Thames Estuary.

The Emirati professionals will gain hands-on experience in the building and operation phases of one of the highest-profile and strategically significant renewable energy projects in the UK.

The secondment is part of Masdar’s vision to help make Abu Dhabi the pre-eminent source of renewable energy knowledge, development and implementation.

This initiative is designed to nurture talented home-grown professionals and further develop skill sets by sending them on overseas assignments.

“Our significant blend of international and UAE (local) projects that deploy diverse renewable energy and clean technologies offer many opportunities for synergies and knowledge sharing, especially for the Emirati professionals,” said Frank Wouters, director, Masdar Power.

“Naser Al Yammahi and Mohammed Al Khawaja are highly regarded for their contributions to the organisation. We are confident they will play a significant role in the rapid progress and timely completion of the London Array project. We will continue to assign talented UAE nationals to overseas projects, where we see mutual benefit,” he added.

Naser Al Yammahi, who has a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Engineering, oversaw the progress of all Masdar’s projects in Spain between November 2009 and August 2010.

Mohamed Al Khawaja, who has a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from the American University of Sharjah in the UAE, and a Master’s Certificate in Project Management from the George Washington University in Dubai, has contributed to EPC contract negotiations, as well as performed concept design work on projects. – TradeArabia News Service
