NorSea Wind, part of the Wilhelmsen Group, has named Anders Peter Pedersen as its new CEO.

Pedersen previously held positions at LM WindPower, Aluwind and Suzlon Wind Energy Corporation, among others.

According to the new CEO, NorSea Wind is ready to enter into strategic partnerships in the offshore wind market.

“I look forward to being part of NorSea Wind, a company that has started a journey, where I have to go in and build on,” Pedersen said.

“We have gathered the right skills in relation to the tasks that are waiting for us, and therefore I have accepted this new challenge. With our location in the middle of a green energy hub, we are ready for growth, and that is the direction NorSea Wind is moving towards.”

Wilhelmsen Ship Management (WSM) recently announced it is acquiring a 50% stake in NorSea Wind and its subsidiaries with an aim to strengthen its foothold in the offshore and onshore wind sectors.

The two companies signed a framework agreement last year to provide a complete technical maintenance solution for TenneT’s offshore and onshore transformer stations and AC electricity transmission systems.
