He will have total responsibility for developing and growing the company’s business in this sector and for the successful execution of its projects. 

Mechanical engineer Lappin joined H&W as a graduate trainee manager in 1999 before leaving to develop his career with blue chip offshore energy companies including BP, KBR and Fred Olsen Renewables.  

He re-joined H&W in 2011 as ship & offshore unit repair manager, overseeing a range of successful projects such as the Husky SeaRose FPSO (floating production storage offshore) system and the recent Blackford Dolphin Drilling Rig project.
