Meet the Founders – Mohammed H. Abusalih, PE

In honor of RRC’s 10 year anniversary, the RRC co-founders reflect on their contributions to the innovative company we see today. This week, the spotlight shines on Mohammed H. Abusalih, Renewable Energy Industry Lead in our Round Rock, TX office.  

“Our vision for RRC was shaped by forward thinking of the future energy needs in the country while capitalizing on the potential growth of renewable energy.”

As one of the founding members of RRC, Mohammed H. Abusalih has gained considerable engineering and project management experience for renewable energy projects across the United States. In addition, Mohammed has extensive engineering experience in transportation-related projects, public works, and commercial developments. His responsibilities include business development, client management, and overall project management. Mohammed’s proficiency in the field and tailored approach to each project has proved his commitment and dedication to ensuring high levels of execution and quality of deliverables, resulting in many satisfied and repeat renewable energy clients.

Mr. Abusalih is considered an expert in geotechnical engineering in the wind industry with experience in several states across the country. Mohammed has a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Utah State University and a M.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Colorado. He is a registered Professional Engineer in 15 states across the country. Having started his career with the Utah Department of Transportation, Mohammed has since accumulated 21 years of engineering experience, 11 of those years in the renewable energy industry.

“When starting RRC, our primary goals were to be a trusted advisor and partner to our core clients and to differentiate ourselves from others in the markets we serve,” Mohammed recalls. “Hard work, dedication, and self-motivation of every RRC employee has positioned us as a leader in the industry.”

Looking back on 10 years at RRC, Mohammed highlights the Shepherds Flat Wind Project in Oregon as a significant milestone. It is currently one of the largest wind projects in the country and the project provided learning opportunities with its unique challenges and geologic hazards.

In his free time, Mohammed enjoys outdoor activities including hiking, especially in the western slopes of Colorado. He has participated in numerous amateur High Performance Driving Events (HPDE) with local automobile clubs at several racing tracks in Texas, including the world class Circuit of the Americas.
