Alan Marson

Principal Engineer
Empire Engineering

Dr Marson has worked in offshore engineering for over 15 years, looking at everything from submarine hull structures to whale impacts. A large part of his experience has been devoted to refining fatigue assessments and justifying the extension of life for offshore structures. Alan worked on numerous oil and gas projects, including the life-predictions of the Brent field substructures post-decommissioning and optimising semi-submersible inspections, but turned his attention to offshore wind specifically in 2018. He now leads the concept design and specialist engineering at Empire Engineering in Bristol, UK.
