Logan Energy has appointed three industry experts to boost its international expansion plans, the hydrogen technology specialist confirmed today (19th April).
Former SSE CEO, Ian Marchant, is one of three new board members the company has appointed, demonstrating its growing belief that hydrogen will be at the forefront of the energy transition.
To the role, Marchant brings over 30 years of industry experience within the private utility, power generation and clean energy markets.
Marchant, said, “I have felt for some time that hydrogen has the potential to be one of the transforming technologies of the 21st Century and its deployment will be key to achieving a net zero carbon society as soon as possible, particularly in the fields of transport and urban heat.”
“This will require expertise in developing and deploying technologies and projects that are transformational at local, regional and international levels. Logan Energy has the track record, knowledge, and knowhow to lead these initiatives.”
Former CEO of Specialist Technical Solutions at Wood, Bob MacDonald, is also joining the board. Much like Marchant, MacDonald brings a wealth of international experience across the energy transition and energy markets.
“The speed of change in the hydrogen market is massive and will continue to grow exponentially as we decarbonise our industries and services in line with net zero objectives,” he said.
The final new addition to the board is Derek Mathieson, former Chief Technology and Marketing Officer at Baker Hughes. Having held a diverse range of C-level roles, he brings over 25 years of energy supply chain experience.
Outlining his ambition for Logan Energy, he said: “Logan Energy has been blazing a trail for nearly three decades, kickstarting some of the UK’s first connected hydrogen ecosystems which are thriving today.”
“Supporting the delivery of innovative projects like North Wales’ first ever hydrogen hub and the green hydrogen Belfast Bus Project underlines Logan Energy’s unrivalled experience within the sector.
“I believe that the company is extremely well positioned for growth and that there is a critical opportunity to create a UK powerhouse within the green hydrogen sector.”
