New General Manager for Forewind

Offshore wind consortium Forewind has appointed Trevor Baker as its new General Manager.

Forewind, owned by innogy, SSE, Statoil and Statkraft, has development consent orders for 4.8GW of offshore wind at Dogger Bank in the North Sea. The consents comprise four individual 1.2GW projects.

The role will include the management and administration of activity related to those consents until operators for the individual projects are appointed, as well as the decommissioning of the meteorological masts on the site.

He comes from within innogy and prior to joining Forewind was Development Manager for Galloper Wind Farm, responsible for the delivery of environmental and consenting activities. Trevor joined Galloper from Triton Knoll Wind Farm where he managed the preparation of the consent order application and led the project through the examination, successfully securing consent for up to 1200MW, which in 2014 was the world’s largest offshore wind farm consent.

He holds an honours degree in Marine and Freshwater Biology from the University of London and joined innogy in 2011 after a career in environmental consultancy within a number of sectors, working across the UK and internationally.

Trevor Baker takes over from Tarald Gjerde who has returned to his parent company Statoil to head up its department for wind business development project execution.
