G+, the global health and safety organisation for the offshore wind sector, has welcomed BP and Northland Power as its latest members.
As members of G+, Northland Power Inc. and BP will have board representation and will participate in G+’s European, APAC and North American focal groups.
Commenting on the new members, G+ chair and Northland Power’s global head and vice president of health, safety and environment Jakob Nielsen said: “As the leading health and safety body for the global offshore wind sector, I’m pleased G+ is bolstering its significant membership to include Northland Power and BP.
“Working across industry, G+’s focus on safety is unwavering.
“With these leading operators joining our well-established work programme, our mission to uphold the highest industry health and safety standards will only be strengthened.”
BP’s head of health, safety and sustainability Giles Mackey added: “With the industry poised to enter a new phase of growth, G+’s role has never been more important and I look forward to contributing our expertise to its work programme.”
G+ comprises 12 operators – BP, Corio Generation, EDF Renewables, Equinor, Iberdrola, Northland Power, Ocean Winds, Orsted, RWE, Siemens Gamesa, SSE, Vattenfall as well as many associate members.
G+ last month held its annual stakeholder forum in Madrid, attended by over 120 participants from members, companies and industry stakeholders.
