Global offshore geotechnical data acquisition, analysis and reporting specialist Geoquip Marine has confirmed it has appointed Flanery Tangang as its new Country Manager for the USA.

Flanery joins Geoquip Marine from Fugro, where he worked in its Center of Excellence for Renewable Energy in the Americas for the last four years in the role of Commercial Manager. During this time, Flanery worked with major renewable energy developers across the East Coast of America, and was involved in more than 90 per cent of offshore windfarm developments across the region.

Flanery is joining Geoquip Marine with considerable international professional experience in several different countries around the world, in the Middle East, North Africa and the Americas.

In his role as Geoquip Marine’s USA Country Manager, Flanery will be a member of the company’s Senior Management Team and will be responsible for marketing the company’s services and activities, providing strategic management to sustain the very rapid growth it has experienced in the region in the last three years and take responsibility for the performance of sales, business development and contract management throughout the Americas.

“I am delighted to be making this very exciting move to what has become the most rapidly growing global offshore geotechnical specialist,” comments Flanery Tangang.

“I am able to bring considerable knowledge of the offshore geotechnical industry, of the renewable energy sector and specifically US market conditions. Geoquip Marine is now the world’s largest wholly dedicated operator of specialist offshore geotechnical data acquisition, analysis and reporting assets and has made clear its absolute commitment to the US market.”

Geoquip Marine’s International Co-Head of Sales Ian Hodder is equally delighted to welcome Flanery Tangang to the company.

“This is a very significant appointment for us. The USA is a vital growth market, so it was imperative that we find the highest calibre Country Manager to sustain this and lead us forward. Flanery has proved himself to be among the very best.

“Over the last three years several of the world’s leading specialist offshore energy developers have invited us to tender on several very high-profile offshore wind power projects in the US and as a result we have successfully completed contracts in Virginia, New Jersey, New York and Massachusetts.

“Offshore wind development is a critical and rapidly growing market for global energy supply, and as the world’s leading dedicated specialist provider of offshore geotechnical investigation services we deliver a vital component of that development. We are proud to utilise world-leading technology, employed on research vessels of the highest specification of their type, operated by the most highly trained and qualified specialist crew in the world.

We are committed to investment and growth in the region, creating jobs and opportunity for the American people, both onshore and offshore. Flanery’s appointment is a vital step towards realising our strategic goals throughout the region.”
