Ken Church

Shetland / SFF and UKDI Lead

Ken joined OSRL in 2008 after serving 23 years in the Army as a Marine Engineer. Ken joined as a response specialist, responding to a variety of spills around the world, also spent 6 months in Saudi Arabia on secondment to Saudi Aramco, gaining valuable experience within one of our member organisations. He then took that experience into the training department and regularly led the delivery of a broad range of training courses.

After several years as a trainer, Ken rejoined response as a Team Leader and Duty Manager where he led teams responding to spills globally.

In 2017 Ken moved to our Aberdeen office where he concentrated on supporting our UK-based members. Ken and the team deliver training and act as TA’s for exercises and incidents. He also manages the Shetland Response base and the OSRL Fishing Vessel Service.
