Kari Ertresvåg wil take on the role of senior vice president for communications at Oslo-headquartered engineering group Aker Solutions.

The company said it was growing rapidly within the low-carbon solutions space for oil and gas production and renewable energy.

Ms Ertresvåg brings with her extensive experience and will be central in communicating business opportunities in the energy transformation to stakeholders globally.

A Norwegian national, she has wide experience within communications and public affairs, including senior positions at the global aluminium and energy company Hydro. She has worked in Hydro since 2014, where she has held leadership roles in Hydro Aluminium Metal and Hydro Energy and been part of Hydro’s global communications management team.

Prior to Hydro, Ms Ertresvåg worked with communications for the European Free Trade Association in Brussels for seven years. She holds a master’s degree in political strategy and communication from the University of Kent.

In her new position, beginning in April, she will manage the communications function at Aker Solutions and report to executive vice president and head of sustainability, HSSE and communications, Marianne Hagen.

By 2025, Aker says one-third of its total revenues will come from solutions enabling oil and gas production with low-carbon emissions, and from deliveries to renewable energy projects, rising to two-thirds by 2030.

The company is also targeting a reduction in CO2 emissions of 50% by 2030.

Aker recently secured a decommissioning contract with Heerema for reception, dismantling and recycling of the Equinor Heimdal and Veslefrikk fields off Norway, as well as the front-end engineering and design (FEED) work for the Equinor Wisting FPSO in the Barents Sea.

“We have 15,000 of the world’s best experts engaged in our operations in more than 20 countries around the world. With extensive capabilities, our purpose is to solve global energy challenges for future generations. Demand for our solutions is growing significantly, and in 2022 we will recruit a high number of experts to our operations around the world.

“Already, we are recruiting many talented people, eager to take part in the energy transformation. Kari is one of these talents, and we are very happy to get her on our team,” Ms Hagen added.
