Meet Simone D’agostino | Geologist and GIS Specialist
What does your day-to-day look like at OWC?
In my daily role at East Point Geo (EPG), part of OWC, I primarily engage in conducting geological desktop studies for the development of future offshore wind farms. This includes tasks such as ground modelling, managing GIS data, and preparing reports.
What inspired you to join your industry?
The primary motivation that led me to pursue a career in this industry is my deep passion for geology. Ever since I was a child, I’ve been an enthusiast of the field, and my aspiration has been to work as a geoscientist in the energy sector.
Can you tell us about something exciting you are working on right now?
I’m currently involved in several projects, with the most thrilling one being a Geological Desktop Study for a deep-water offshore wind farm in a European country. This project is set in a highly dynamic environment abounding of geological hazards. Simultaneously, I’m also engaged in creating a 3D ground model for an offshore wind farm in the UK.
What does the future look like in energy and oceans?
The combination of a high demand for energy and a commitment to low carbon emissions policies will inevitably drive the rapid growth of renewable energy sources, including offshore wind farms and other energy resources connected to the oceans, involving the geoscientists to assess geohazard and find innovative solutions to cope with them.
