Equinor has appointed a former exec of Orsted and Copenhagen Offshore Partners as its new senior vice president of North Sea Renewables.
Trine Borum Bojsen has more than 27 years’ experience working in the offshore wind industry, including more than a decade at Orsted/ Dong Energy.
Most recently she was chief operating officer of Copenhagen Offshore Partners, responsible for plans for the Vindo Energy Island concept, to be built in the Danish North Sea.
She joins as SVP for the Equinor North Sea Renewables business in London as the Norwegian energy firm focuses on construction of the huge Dogger Bank Windfarm with partner SSE.
Ms Bojsen said: “I cannot wait to meet and learn from many new colleagues – I have no doubt we are a good match and will be growing together! As we construct Dogger Bank, the largest offshore wind farm in the world currently being built, develop yet more expertise in floating offshore wind, and add to our portfolio with new projects, this will be an era of evolution for Equinor and for the offshore wind industry.
“I’m honoured and very excited to have this opportunity to lead the great people in Equinor’s North Sea Renewables business.
“This new adventure means I have relocated to London. I am thrilled about this new beginning, and I look forward to connecting with many of you in the coming months.”
