Riccardo Felici Heads up OWC Asia-Pacific

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Riccardo Felici as the new Regional Director for OWC in Asia Pacific.

Felici is a certified Project Manager Professional (PMP) and Naval Architect with extensive experience in the renewable energy sector, with particular focus on designing and analysing fixed and floating offshore structures related to renewable energy generation and power interconnection.

Felici’s new role follows having worked as country manager for OWC Vietnam since 2021. Since that time, he has successfully established the Ho Chi Minh City office and contributed to the development of OWC’s specialist local knowledge and targeted support for developers in Vietnam and the wider region.

Prior to this, Felici spent several years as a project manager in renewable energy projects across APAC with OWC’s sister company Longitude Engineering in Singapore.

“I’m delighted to see Riccardo take on this new role across APAC. Considering his background, track-record and experience I know he will be a great fit and am excited to see the region continue to grow under his excellent leadership.”

William Cleverly, CEO of OWC

“Asia Pacific renewable energy continues to make great strides at pace and 2024 looks to be no different. Across onshore and offshore technologies the capacity and growth potential of the APAC region is unmatched globally. In offshore wind alone, seabed leases are anticipated in South Korea, Taiwan, India, Japan and Philippines in 2024. And eyes are also on the massive potential from Australia. OWC has the perfect mix of technical expertise, track-record and geographical presence, to support the next phase of APAC renewable energy development.”
