Per Ove Skorpen joins as General Manager of Norsk Vind Energi AS
Norsk Vind Energi AS was established in 1996. Since then, Lars Helge Helvig has been the General Manager, and during the past 15 years, Rune Hersvik has had the role of co-founder and Chairman of the Board of Directors. The patience with respect to the development of wind power permits over more than 20 years, has finally borne fruit. During the next 3 years, the company will have about 600MW of wind power under construction in Rogaland!
In this change of tempo, the company has elected to make some organisational adaptations. Per Ove Skorpen now takes on the role of General Manager, Lars Helge Helvig takes over as Chairman of the Board, and Rune Hersvik continues as key partner and Director.
The projects now being realised are providing Norsk Vind Energi AS, and our owners, with a unique opportunity to become further involved in the green change. The company will continue to operate on the basis of its strengths, which is developing new projects, but we are also seeing that the technology related to production, distribution and storage of energy is opening new and exciting opportunities. We have a basic belief in the role of wind power as a renewable energy resource, and believe in a future where electric power production and industry, to an even greater extent, may work hand in hand to develop optimal social economic solutions!

“With the large construction volume that our projects constitute in the coming years, it is important for us to strengthen the operative focus of our organisation. Mr. Skorpen joined Norsk Vind Energi in the spring of 2016 as Director of Development, and brought with him more than 10 years of experience from wind power projects with Rambøll, a consulting company. Going forward, he will combine this role with shouldering the duties of General Manager. In addition, we are in the process of manning up key technical resources in order to ensure good project implementation”, says Lars Helge Helvig (to the left).

Two years ago, Egersund had the highest unemployment rate in the country. The historical development of renewable energy around Egersund, the country’s wind power capital, has been a big contributor to turning this trend around.
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.
