On his appointment, Gordon said:

Energy has always been a key part of our business. Over the last five years, Pell Frischmann has become a key player in the energy and renewables sector, working on a wide variety of projects and technologies. Recognising the Energy Sector as one of our primary markets will help continue to drive this forward across the whole firm and I am delighted to have been given this exciting new role and look forward to creating new opportunities to help play our part in the new energy revolution.

Pell Frischmann’s Managing Director, Iain Bisset said:

Energy security, the transition to net zero and aligning supply with demand are all complex challenges. Pell Frischmann’s agile and creative approach to working with our clients means that we can bring new thinking and best practice to our projects, which is essential in the rapidly changing energy market. I am delighted that Gordon will be leading our strategic position across this area of business, building upon the excellent work that he has been delivering for our clients for many years.

Our Energy Sector

The need to decarbonise, develop sustainable energy sources and ensure energy security are at the heart of policy and action for governments, organisations and individuals around the globe.

In order to achieve critical targets, you need an experienced team to help guide and advise. Pell Frischmann has been involved in some of the largest energy projects in northern Europe. From helping ensure that wind farm abnormal loads can efficiently access remote sites, to designing energy parks to minimise their impact on sensitive ecology and ground conditions, we have played a key role in helping enable projects.

With experience in Wind, Offshore Wind, Solar, Hydro, Biogas, AD, Battery Storage and energy transmission, our expert team have assisted clients from early feasibility through to construction. Our expertise has seen us working across the UK, Ireland, Sweden, Lithuania and Latvia and encompasses projects from single turbine installations through to projects of a strategic importance.

Our innovative approach has helped gain approval for some of the first green hydrogen projects in the UK. With an expert in-house team and trusted subcontractor specialists, we look forward to helping clients achieve consents and deliver projects to meet future demands.
