30 August 2010
New Turbine Development Officer

Alan Manzie took up the duties of the Turbine Development Officer on the sixteenth of August, and is quickly coming to grips with his new responsibilities.

Alan comes from a business background of twenty-five years, having spent most of that time within the Unilever group of companies, as a business development manager, and in training roles.

He took a career break in order to undertake a vocational course of study in rural development, before relocating to Shetland, where he was involved in the management of a large shell-fish processing company; during that period he gained valuable experience overseeing the construction of a large factory extension under his management.

He has recently moved to Orkney, in support of his wife who was appointed to a permanent position within the NHS.

Alan will work to bring the turbine project to fruition for the Shapinsay community; scheduled for commission during September 2011, the plan goes beyond the construction phase, to create new community, business, and education & training opportunities for everyone.

Alan is available on mobile phone number   07753 117741 and at alan.manzie@ymail.com
