Our Story

Our Management Team

From our experience working with the biggest owner/operators in the global on and offshore wind industry, we discovered that there was not an easy way for them to take advantage of the latest turbine O&M technology. Consequently, they were missing out on significant cost savings and vastly improved operations.


We created Tethys to provide the industry with a service business whose sole purpose was to bring the latest, proven robotic technologies to asset owner/operators.


With our unique blend of industry skills and experience, we will constantly deliver value and support to our clients for as long as the wind blows.

Jamie Allan LLB (Hons) MSc.

CCO

Since 2012, Jamie has been involved in the global energy industry: identified as an oil & gas ‘rising star’, he drove the growth of FTSE listed IMI Plc in the North Sea by over 325% whilst also acting as UK Compliance Champion.

 

Following this success, he joined drone inspection pioneers Cyberhawk, forging a path in the wind industry before joining a global marine business, where he created a drone blade inspection service capability from scratch that achieved two offshore wind project world-firsts, a Renewable UK Health and Safety Innovation Award, and won a framework with SSE.

 

This led to a short spell as CSO with NorSea Wind before the establishment of Allan Panthera, a business growth consultancy that has been supporting innovative companies commercialise their solutions across multiple sectors, with one client winning an ORE Catapult/Scottish Power offshore inspection competition.

 

He is a lawyer by trade and holds an MSc in Management, Enterprise & Innovation from the University of Aberdeen.
