We are facing some major developments in renewable energy from wind power. One of Norway's leading project managers, with extensive experience in wind power development, is now joining and strengthening the team.
Norsk Vind Energi AS has been involved in the development of both the Høg Jæren and the Røyrmyra wind power plants. In parallel, we have also been working on finding new project opportunities. In the years ahead, it is our ambition to play a key role in the realisation of several projects. That is why we have hired Per Ove Skorpen as Development Manager for Norsk Vind Energi AS. Mr. Skorpen will be responsible for the process related to the procurement of contractors and the implementation of the projects themselves. The first project is the construction of the Egersund wind power plant. The project is already under construction, with expected completion at the end of 2017.
Mr. Skorpen was previously Country Manager, Energy at Rambøll, a consulting company. Since 2005, he has been involved in a number of wind power projects in Norway, both in relation to feasibility studies and development. Thus, he brings with him all-round wind power experience, which, together with his experience in project implementation in general, will be very important to Norsk Vind Energi AS going forward.
The Paris Agreement and ISBS, the UN climate panel, have demanded a faster pace in the transition to a low emission society. Norsk Vind AS wishes to be part of the solution and the change of pace towards zero emissions, and are seeking more competent employees.
