JWC PROJECT MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS
Jonathan Chambers - Renewable Energy Consultant
I am a highly motivated Prince2 and APMP qualified Project Manager with expertise that has encompassed the Defence and Renewable Energy sectors. I have an extremely strong engineering background and I'm a determined problem solver with strong communication skills and a commitment to continuous improvement.
My leadership, organisation and management skills have been developed in many diverse roles and challenging environments in the UK, mainland Europe, the Middle East, Australia and the USA.
With responsibility for QHSE, Risk, Contracts, Commercial, Change and Interface Management across multiple packages, I excel in a team environment with the emphasis on delivery. I'm also a composed negotiator and presenter.
Currently, I'm the Cables Lead for Offshore Construction Associates working on a major US OWF project.
Previously, I worked for 'Les Eoliennes en Mer' in La Defense, Paris. I was responsible for the Array Cable Supply and Installation package for the Dieppe/Le Treport 500MW windfarm and the Iles d'Yeu & Noirmoutier 500MW windfarm.
Before 'LEMS', I was the Array Cables Manager with DONG Energy (now Orsted) on the Hornsea Project One Offshore Wind Farm.
My role included package management for the supply of c.380km array cables with JDR and Nexans and package management of the Termination & Testing scope utilising a new offshore logistics concept including offshore accommodation with a walk to work strategy.
I was also involved in the design of the array cable layout and was a member of the project's EPC Construction Installation Team.

Le Treport & Noirmoutier - LEMS (EDPR & ENGIE)
My roles have centred around the package management of array cable supply and installation, but have also covered offshore and onshore site investigations, met mast repairs and the supply of export cables.
