NorSea Wind, part of the Wilhelmsen Ship Management (WSM) Group, has named Anders Peter Pedersen as its new chief executive officer (CEO).  

Pedersen  has extensive experience from the green energy sector. A lot has happened in the harbor since Anders Peter Pedersen as 17-year-old started his career on his first ship in Esbjerg, but now the circle is in many ways closed for the new CEO of NorSea Wind.

He is practically back at the same harbor quay, where he boarded MS Stafford in the fall of 1982, but now it is as captain of NorSea Wind, and the view goes far from the bridge. He has solid support from one of the world’s largest maritime groups, Wilhelmsen, which covers more than 2,200 ports worldwide and the rest of the NorSea group.

“From Esbjerg, as an energy metropol, we can operate internationally towards an industry that has a global imprint. It is clear that we have a large market around the North Sea and Northern Europe in general, but it is in a large international market we can take advantage of the unique properties that exist because we are part of both NorSea and the Wilhelmsen group, which together, invest significantly in offshore wind”, says Anders Peter Pedersen, who, among other things, has LM Windpower B & W Vølund and Suzlon Energy on his CV.

“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. We are on the shoulders of large companies, which allows us to trade on a large scale, and this is important in a market that is just growing. 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”, continues Anders Peter Pedersen from the harbor edge in Esbjerg.

NorSea Wind has offices in NorSea House of Offshore Innovation in Esbjerg and Hamburg.
