Cameron Smith, Chief Operating Officer for Mainstream’s offshore business, has been appointed to the Board of Scottish Renewables. Having received the second highest number of votes of the 21 nominees, Cameron now joins the Board for a three-year term.
Cameron is delighted to be on the Board of Scottish Renewables which represents more than 330 companies working in the renewable energy sector in Scotland. Offshore wind has a massive role in play in bringing indigenous, clean and cost effective electricity to Scottish homes and businesses and his experience in the sector will help to further promote the case for renewables in Scotland.
Cameron joined Mainstream at the company’s inception in 2008 and has full responsibility for its offshore wind activities in Scotland, England and Germany. He plays a key role in the delivery of the company’s 450MW Neart na Gaoithe offshore wind farm to be located off the coast of Fife which last week appointed key contractors for the supply of wind turbines as well as the construction of the wind farm.
Cameron was part of the team who created and built Airtricity’s successful onshore business in Scotland. He is a chartered Electrical Engineer with a background in marine electrical contracting, shipbuilding and utility asset management and is passionate about renewable energy and the economic opportunities it can provide.
