Phil Johnston of Celtic Sea Power
Phil is currently working on strategic development of floating offshore wind in the Celtic Sea. As part of the Cornwall FLOW Accelerator programme (ERDF-funded), Phil is focusing on development of a sustainable regional industry and a workforce for FLOW that is rooted in the region.
Phil Johnston originally graduated in environmental sciences before an early career in marine ecology research. He then spent several years at sea as an offshore environmental consultant, primarily on oil and gas exploration surveys but also on offshore wind developments and navy frigates. Phil then moved onshore to manage ocean monitoring programmes before switching to business development. His experience here involved commercialising one of the UK’s first uncrewed surface vessels (USVs) from early testing through to market readiness.
