Swire Energy Services, a global integrated energy services provider, announces the appointment of Claus Rødsgaard as Head of Operations, in a newly created role for the Wind Division, as it continues to strengthen the management team to support operations.

Claus will support and oversee operational activity within the Swire Energy Services (SES) Wind Division and will be based in Lystrup, Denmark.

Joining SES from Dominion Global holding the position of Head of Blades and Composites, Claus and a small management team built their wind service from the beginning, and brings over 25 years of management and leadership experience.

For me leadership is all about engaging with people and achieving success together. I have spent 25 years preparing for this position and I look forward to growing and succeeding with my skilled and dedicated colleagues in my new role.”

The appointment falls in line with the long-term focus for SES and further supports the ongoing diversification of the business into the renewable sector.

Sabine Weth, Vice President of Offshore Wind added; “I am delighted to welcome Claus as Head of Operations. We are growing the management team and developing our operations to support customer projects and Claus’s wealth of experience and passion for leading teams will help to further support our vision.”

SES have strengthened their Wind Division with major contract wins and the recent appointment of Nils Leseberg as Head of Commercial. The division continues to move towards becoming the service partner of choice within the global wind industry.
