Siemens Gamesa’s Offshore Business Unit CEO Michael Hannibal has decided to leave the company. The company’s Board of Directors announced today, 20 October, that Andreas Nauen will start as the new Offshore CEO on 1 November.

Michael Hannibal joined Siemens Gamesa (then Siemens Wind Power) in 2004, and after the Siemens Gamesa merger[2] he was named CEO of the offshore division, having held the same position previously at Siemens Wind Power.

Upon Hannibal’s decision to leave the company, Siemens Gamesa stated that he has contributed significantly to transforming offshore wind power into a sustainable part of the energy mix.

The company said Nauen has a track record in the renewable industry spanning than 11 years, having notably managed the integration of Bonus A/S into Siemens.

The Board of Directors have also appointed Miguel Ángel López as the new Chief Financial Officer (CFO), effective 1 December, following Andrew Hall’s decision to pursue other opportunities. José Antonio Cortajarena, who has also decided to leave the company, will be succeeded at the position of the General Counsel and General Secretary of SGRE by Jürgen Bartl, starting immediately.

Statoil’s board of directors and Chief Executive Officer Eldar Sætre have agreed that Sætre remains the company’s CEO after he turns 62 in February 2018, and will not use his contractual right to retire at that age.

Statoil’s board of directors and Chief Executive Officer Eldar Sætre have agreed that Sætre remains the company’s CEO after he turns 62 in February 2018, and will not use his contractual right to retire at that age.

“It has been a wish from the board of Statoil that Eldar Sætre continues as CEO,” Jon Erik Reinhardsen, the chair of Statoil’s board of directors, said. “He is the right person to continue developing Statoil as a broad energy major, with a clear strategy for safe operations, high value creation and a low carbon future.”

Statoil appointed Sætre as chief executive on 4 February 2015, after being acting CEO since 2014.

“I am proud of Statoil’s achievements, and believe we are well equipped for the future,” said Sætre. “We are strengthening our position as an operator in attractive areas outside Norway, and have started to build a significant portfolio in renewable energy. Statoil has delivered competitive returns, and is well positioned to create substantial shareholder value also in the future.”

“I look forward to continuing to lead this company as we continue our journey,”Sætre concluded.

Under his individual pension agreement Sætre had the right to retire at the age of 62, after only three years as CEO. At that time, an element of his fixed pay was excluded from his pensionable earnings. Now that there is agreement to a longer time frame, the board has decided to revert to the original provision of pension being calculated on total fixed pay. The fixed pay element, around NOK 2.4 million today, will thus be included in the pension-qualifying income.

Sætre will retire when he turns 67 the latest, but still holds the right to retire at an earlier age.

The Matador 3 floating crane, which will lift the transition pieces on top of the jacket foundations at the Nissum Bredning site, has arrived from Rotterdam to Thyboron this week, while the first wind turbine parts were also expected to be sent off from the Port of Esbjerg, according to an update posted on the project’s social media page on 16 October.

At the same time, the project team has been working to ensure that the two remaining jackets can be transported and installed on positions 1 and 3, since the first two are installed[2] at positions 2 and 4.

Offshore WIND has contacted the project team for the latest update on the project, and will update this article once Nissum Bredning team responds.

Spanish joint venture Navantia-Windar[3] is the manufacturer of the three-legged jacket foundations and accompanying piles for the 28MW project, while Aarsleff won the contract[4] to build the concrete transition pieces and install the new gravity jacket foundation.

Aarsleff delivered the four transition pieces earlier in October.[5]

The Nissum Bredning project site off the Danish coast serves as a testbed for Siemens’ technology and will comprise four Siemens Gamesa 7MW direct drive wind turbines mounted on gravity jacket foundations. Siemens will also install a new 66kV voltage solution including a new transformer, cable and switchgear systems, along with further innovations regarding tower and controller settings.

ORE Catapult is looking to procure a Power Analyser System to be used in the 15MW wind turbine and 3MW marine drivetrain test facilities in Blyth, which will link into the Grid Emulation System (eGrid) to allow the measurement of current and voltage usage from the eGrid system.

Tenders[2] may be submitted by 1 November, with the awarded contract going into effect on 24 November.

In March, ORE Catapult awarded GE Energy Power Conversion UK with a GBP 4 million contract to design, supply, deliver, install, test and commission the Grid Emulation System, including cabling and containment at ORE Catapult’s test facility in Blyth.

The Grid Emulation System will allow ORE Catapult to conduct electrical power quality test and the possibility of accelerated validation of wind and marine renewable energy devices in a controlled environment.

The steel monopiles are 40-50m long and have a diameter of 6.5 metres. They are being driven about 30m into the seabed and, due to noise concerns, a support vessel is being used to place an air bubble installation on the seabed around the construction site. The installation creates a sound-absorbing, double layer of air bubbles that protect marine mammals in the area, Vattenfall said.

A2SEA – now a GeoSea subsidiary[1] – will carry out the turbine installation works with its vessel Sea Installer[2], scheduled to start working at the site in the summer of 2018.

Horns Rev 3 will feature 49 MHI Vestas V164-8.0MW turbines, optimised at 8.3MW, scheduled to be commissioned in 2018.

Vattenfall pointed out that this is the first time in five years that an offshore wind farm will be built in Denmark.

“Horns Rev 3 is the first of three offshore farms that Vattenfall will construct in Denmark in the coming years. These wind farms will, in the highest degree, contribute to our strategy to have a fossil free energy production within one generation,” said Gunnar Groebler, head of Vattenfall´s Wind Business.

In addition to Horns Rev 3, Vattenfall will also construct the Danish Kriegers Flak, as well as Vesterhav South and North nearshore wind farms.

UK-based Wessex Archaeology and U.S. company Coastal Environments Inc. (CEI) have partnered to provide a suite of marine archaeological and cultural resource services designed to meet the needs of offshore renewable projects in the United States.

According to Wessex, the newly-established offshore renewables team brings together expertise and capacity in archaeology, geophysics and geoarchaeology, in combination with expertise on BOEM’s Guidelines for Providing Archaeological and Historic Property Information, offshore wind farm development and cultural resource permitting, and regulatory planning for Section 106 and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

In 2010, Wessex Archaeology implemented[2] a draft Protocol for Archaeological Discoveries for offshore renewables in the UK, which helped protect hundreds of archaeological discoveries that offered insight into the past environment of the Dogger Bank area of the North Sea and evidence of rich maritime heritage.

Since then, Wessex Archaeology has worked with developers and the Crown Estate to further update and refine the Protocol, with the Crown Estate launching the final Protocol in September 2014.

Wessex Archaeology has supplied archaeological services for over 90% of all the UK’s offshore wind farm schemes, and has experience in all stages from pre-planning and scoping to post-construction monitoring. The company’s EIA work includes walkover surveys on land and intertidal areas, and geoarchaeological assessment of offshore cores.

CEI specialises in cultural resource management using an interdisciplinary approach and has conducted underwater archaeology for 40 years. The company is committed to offering oceanographic, coastal engineering and environmental consulting services in the industry.
