Breath of Fresh Air for MacArtney’s Offshore Renewable Energy Department
MacArtney A/S appoints new personnel to strengthen the Offshore Renewable Energy department at headquarters in Esbjerg, Denmark.
Bjørn Joensen and Erik J. Aalbæk join the MacArtney family to begin work on strengthening and developing MacArtney’s Offshore Renewable Energy sector, in line with the corporate strategy.
Offshore Renewable Energy has long been an important industry for the MacArtney Group. MacArtney has supplied the Offshore Renewable Energy markets with their trademark underwater connectivity solutions including SubConn®, OptoLink, TrustLink and GreenLink for many years.
As Offshore Wind comes to the forefront of sustainable energy strategies, MacArtney has grown from supplying connectivity solutions to engineering lifting and handling equipment solutions for major conglomerates.
Esbjerg local, Bjørn Joensen joins the MacArtney Group as Sales Director for Offshore Wind from the SH Group A/S where he worked as the General Manager to develop the overall business and increase sales. With a maritime-based background, Bjørn was initially educated as a Marine Technician and holds a professional degree in Business Leadership.
Bjørn will primarily be involved in developing MacArtney’s Offshore Renewable Business Strategy in MacArtney headquarters and across the global operations. The focus will be on solidifying and building on the good working relationships MacArtney has already nurtured within the Offshore Wind industry and on developing new prospects.
Travelling in from Brande, Erik J. Aalbæk brings with him a strong technical background. With almost 20 years of extensive experience in the Offshore Wind industry, Erik has worked with many leading International Service Providers.
Leaving ZITON Contractors A/S as Technical Director, Erik will join MacArtney as the Sales Manager for Offshore Wind. As Sales Manager, Erik will ensure our customers benefit from MacArtney’s innovative technology and expert engineering skills to develop customised system solutions.
Commenting on MacArtney’s new appointments, Michael Behrens, Chief Commercial Officer, states,
"MacArtney is excited to welcome Bjørn and Erik to the MacArtney family and the Offshore Renewable Energy sector. As MacArtney continues to grow, we are continually looking for qualified professionals with a passion for innovative technology and a growth mindset."
