Northland Power Inc., an independent power producer based in Toronto, has appointed Morten Melin executive vice president of construction.
Most recently, Melin was vice president of engineering, procurement and construction for DONG Energy Wind Power.
Currently, Melin is an advisor to Northland and British Wind Energy (BWE) on the construction and implementation planning for the 252 MW Deutsche Bucht offshore wind project, located off the coast of Germany. Northland announced in March that it had signed a definitive agreement to acquire 100% of the project, currently in advanced development, from the Highland Group Holdings (which owns the project through BWE).
John Brace, CEO of Northland, notes that Melin has “significant experience developing large-scale renewable power projects.”
“His technical and infrastructure project management experience will enhance Northland’s ability to develop and build large-scale projects in multiple international locations,” Brace says.
Northland develops, builds, owns and operates wind, solar, hydro and natural gas facilities. Notably, the company owns 85% of the Nordsee One offshore wind farm in the North Sea.
