Forewind hires general manager
Trevor Baker replaces Tarald Gjerde at Dogger Bank developer
Offshore wind consortium Forewind has appointed Trevor Baker as its new general manager, replacing Tarald Gjerde who has returned to Statoil to head up wind business development project execution.
Forewind, which is owned by Innogy, SSE, Statoil and Statkraft, has development consent orders for four 1.2GW offshore wind farms at the Dogger Bank zone in the North Sea.
Baker (pictured) will manage and administer work related to the consents until operators for the individual projects are appointed, and the decommissioning of the meteorological masts, Forewind said.
He previously worked at Innogy as development manager for the 336MW Galloper offshore wind farm, where he was responsible for the delivery of environmental and consenting activities.
