Allan Macskill

Floatation Energy

Allan has 40 years’ experience in offshore energy. He conceived and developed the Beatrice demonstrator project, pioneering the development of large-scale windfarms in deeper waters.

In 2008 he founded SeaEnergy Renewables. It became a leading independent in the UK offshore wind sector establishing a portfolio of 3.3 GW and international JV’s in Taiwan and China. Repsol purchased the company in June 2011. In 2013 he founded Pilot offshore Renewables with Nicol Stephen to pursue the development of the Kincardine Offshore windfarm. This is a 50 MW floating pilot programme and when completed later this year will be the world’s largest grid connected floating windfarm consisting of 5 x 9.5 MW MHIVestas V164 9.5 and 1 x 2 MW Vestas V80 on PPI Windfloat substructures. The first generation was achieved in September 2018 and the full development will be complete next spring.

In 2018, in conjunction with Nicol Stevenson he founded Flotation Energy to progress Offshore wind developments in the UK and internationally.
