We have extensive global infrastructure experience
Our founders are amongst the most experienced offshore wind leaders in Asia Pacific
The KIMA team bring a wealth of experience from senior roles with prominent developers in Europe and Asia-Pacific. We have a unique understanding of large energy infrastructure projects from a commercial and technical perspective, across all stages of the asset lifecycle.
Our two founders were listed in the top 5 in Asia within the Women in Wind global power list 2021. They have over 35 years' collective experience on large scale offshore wind and energy infrastructure projects.
Our founders have worked in energy and infrastructure for their whole careers, and have held key roles from the beginnings of the offshore wind industry in Europe and Asia. They have been at the forefront of delivering projects across all phases from market entry and bidding, through to development, construction and operations.
They haven't simply advised others - they have done it.
'We want to support green energy in reaching its full potential on a global scale. There is still a long way to go, especially in Asia-Pacific, where there is a big skills gap. We want to use our experience to ensure full opportunities are captured. We want to see new markets developed well, so the industry succeeds in the long term'
