Managing Director and Morek Founder Bob Colclough is a chartered Naval Architect with a comprehensive track record in the delivery of technical expertise to the marine industry. Bob holds a diverse engineering skill set which combines a strong theoretical background in marine hydrodynamics and hydrostatics, with hands-on experience of the practical issues of installation and operation in the marine environment.
Prior to starting Morek Bob was the head of engineering at UK marine services provider James Fisher, he has worked in marine renewables since 2007 after graduating from the University of Southampton with a Masters degree in Ship Science.
Jovie is Morek’s Lead Project Engineer with almost a decade of experience in engineering analysis to support the offshore renewable’s industry, specialising in marine operations modelling and mooring design. These skills are complemented by significant experience supervising marine operations on a broad range of offshore projects. He is equally happy offshore supervising a 200-tonne heavy lift as analysing the dynamics of a complex offshore systems model.
Jovie has a degree in Mechanical Engineering, a Lloyd’s Certificate in Naval Architecture and is currently pursuing chartered status. He was recently awarded Business Cornwall’s 30 under 30 for his role in starting and developing Morek.
Lead R&D Engineer Jamie Maxted is a chartered mechanical engineer with the IMechE. He has a strong track record in developing innovative solutions to complex offshore design challenges. Throughout his career Jamie has worked primarily as a project engineer / design engineer in the onshore and offshore renewable energy industries since completing a Masters degree in Renewable Energy Engineering from the University of Exeter in 2016.
Jamie has developed a varied analytical and practical skillset since working in the renewables / offshore industry which includes structural design and analysis, dynamic analysis, 2D & 3DCAD, FEA, mooring design & analysis, deck layouts design &sea-fastening arrangements, lift plans, project planning & documentation, and offshore support.
Arthur is a Project Engineer with experience in engineering design, analysis and programming with a focus on offshore renewables. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Bristol (which included an internship at James Fisher Marine Services) and a Lloyds Certificate in Naval Architecture. He joined the Morek team and quickly gained key skills through technical projects. These include the design and optimisation of advanced mooring systems, using OrcaFlex in conjunction with python to undertake iterative design processes for optimised solutions. Developing storyboards for marine operations along with risk assessed methods statements, working on offshore projects as a Project Engineer and reforming internal processes.
Charlie is a recent recruit to the Morek team, she has joined following a 7-year tenure at Bam Nuttall, working in port development and construction across a range of technical and managerial positions. Most recently Charlie has been the Site Agent for Pembroke docks, an area crucial to the successful development of floating wind in the Celtic Sea. Charlie is a skilled project integrator familiar with the demands of marine projects which have involved challenging environmental conditions, complex designs, and tight programme deadlines.
