NorSea announces today that Terje Borkenhagen will assume the position as CEO of NorSea Wind. With increased activity in the company, the ability to bring together Wilhelmsen resources will be key to success in the wind industry going forwards.
NorSea Wind is experiencing an increase in maintenance work for offshore wind parks already part of the company’s portfolio. In addition, NorSea Wind is currently in the running for several tender processes looking to secure additional contracts for offshore windturbine parks. With an even greater focus on cross-company collaboration between Wilhelmsen group companies, Terje Borkenhagen will be a perfect match for the future challenges. John Stangeland, CEO of NorSea explains why Borkenhagen’s background will deliver the network and experience NorSea Wind needs now: “The challenges ahead require very close working relationships among several Wilhelmsen companies, otherwise we will not succeed in acquiring the contracts we are seeking let alone complete the work we are setting out to do. NorSea Wind, NorSea and Wilhelmsen Ship Management are already working closely together, more of this will come. Terje has worked within the Wilhelmsen system for decades and is perfectly equipped to build on his experience and network to help NorSea Wind on the road ahead”.
Terje Borkenhagen has worked in Wilhelmsen companies since 1996 within a wide variety of positions, most recent as vice president for Wilhelmsen Maritime Services. He helped achieve complete turnaround operations and delivered record results for its safety division, ultimately selling the division to Survitec where Terje assumed the position as vice president of global sales. After nearly 25 years in the Wilhelmsen group, only broken up by stints in Jotun, Marine Alliance and recently Survitec, Terje is returning home as CEO for NorSea Wind. “I am very excited and humble about this opportunity. I appreciate the solid work done by NorSea Wind so far, it is truly impressive. We, the Wilhelmsen group are strong together and I look forward to develop our wind offering further and pull on all the tremendously good resources we have to ensure NorSea Wind becomes an even more substantial player within the enormous and very exciting wind industry”.
Borkenhagen assumes the position as CEO with immediate effect.
