Crown Estate takes on new head of offshore wind

The Crown Estate has appointed Huub den Rooijen as head of offshore wind in a new role created as the organisation moves into the delivery phase of its £75bn Round 3 programme.

Alastair Dutton remains programme manager for Round 3 but Rooijen will focus on investment and supporting developers, among other responsibilities.

Rooijen, who has recently taken up his new role, was previously director of the Benelux region with renewable energy consultant PMS and also a project director with Shell Gas & Power.

During the 1990s he worked in the US and the UK, initially in oil and gas, and later in the emerging offshore wind industry. He later moved to the Netherlands where he led the joint venture that installed and operated the first offshore wind farm in Dutch waters.

He holds a degree in astrophysics.
