Stephen Bolton

Chief Executive Officer

Stephen Bolton has a wealth of offshore wind industry experience having been dedicated to the offshore wind industry since 2001. He has worked on wind farms (including North Hoyle, Barrow, Lynn and Inner Dowsing, Thanet, Rhyl Flats and Gwynt y Mor), and in senior roles at electricity companies such as RWE and Centrica.

Stephen’s experience comes from having spent significant time in all aspects of an offshore wind farm; development; construction (inc the UK’s first offshore wind farm North Hoyle); O&M and; Asset Management. His passion however lies in developing improved Asset Management strategies where he believes Offshore Wind has the ability to develop significantly especially in regard to fit for purpose strategies that delivered whole wind farm asset management, as opposed to just wind turbine management. Insights gained throughout his career have made him an early proponent of the concept of the Walk to Work SOV which he is now dedicated to delivering whilst keeping an interest on how this technology can have a wider role and impact to cost and safety.

Having provided consultancy support to Bibby to support its Walk to Work market analysis and subsequent market entry, Stephen joined the business as Commercial Director subsequently rising to CEO of Bibby Marine Services and Exec Director of Bibby Marine where he dedicates his efforts to delivering SOV’s that are differentiated to better meet the needs of offshore wind.

Stephen is a Chartered Mechanical Engineer (Leeds) with a Master of Business Administration (Henley). He has also published several thought leadership articles on Offshore Wind Asset management and is a co-author of “Offshore Wind” by Kurt E Thomsen (O&M content).
