Alasdair Robb

Facilitator

Alasdair is the newest addition to the team, joining at the end of 2023. Alasdair
was the Remote Operation Centre Superintendent for Fugro in Aberdeen and played
a key role in developing new working practices and technology, helping to shape
the future of a new, sustainable, low-carbon offshore industry.  Working
with management teams globally within Fugro, regulatory bodies in the UK and
abroad, a diverse client base and a workforce in transition. Alasdair was able
to use his broad skill set to help with many industry firsts, including the
first remote subsea Platform Inspection in the North Sea and the roll-out of
the first Uncrewed Surface Vessels (USVs) with a Remotely Operated Vehicle
(ROV) in the world to operate commercially.

Alasdair began his career in the offshore industry in 2012, working in the
Subsea Inspection and Survey field, gaining valuable experience in the Oil and
Gas Industry. Working throughout the North Sea, West Africa, Baltic Sea, Black
Sea and Mediterranean Sea on Vessels and Platforms. The skills acquired accumulated
in running complex multi-disciplinary vessel-based Inspection and Survey
campaigns.

Alasdair also has a practical background, having trained, and worked as a
boatbuilder as far afield as New Zealand. Before this, he was a Firefighter
based at a station that specialised in Road Safety Training. This involved
travelling to schools and businesses, delivering road safety training and
demonstrations alongside the traditional Firefighter role. Out of the
workplace, Alasdair has been an active climber for 25 years, travelling worldwide
in its pursuit. However, he is now happiest at home, climbing and mountain
biking in Scotland, alongside studying Psychology through the Open University.
