278 Vestas turbines will now be installed under the leadership of a new executive. As of Aug. 15, Eivind Torblaa has taken up the role as head of operations for the company behind the Europe's largest onshore wind farm, Fosen Vind, which ahead to 2020 will install turbines with 1,001 MW capacity. He is replacing the current manager, Kristian Aa, announced Fosen Vind.
Torblaa has occupied several different posts within Statkraft's wind division over the past seven years. As country manager for the UK, he has been involved in Stakraft's wound-down offshore wind activities, while most recently he has served as country manager for Turkey, where the Norwegian utility has been engaged in hydropower projects to varying success.
