    Skyborn Renewables GmbH: Skyborn Renewables Launches as a Leading Company in Global Wind Power

    September 21, 2022 - Viet Nam News


      Global Infrastructure Partners ("GIP"), a leading independent global infrastructure investor, today announced the launch of Skyborn Renewables, a leading player in the international wind power industry. Skyborn Renewables (Skyborn) was previously operated as wpd offshore.

      In May, GIP announced an agreement to acquire 100% of the business. The transaction closed on September 15, 2022.

      The assets of Skyborn include interests in 5 operating and under-construction projects in Germany, France and Taiwan; and a pipeline of over 30 GW (gross) of highly diversified offshore wind projects in various stages of development. The company has over 20 years of development experience, a track record of ~7 GW developed to date, and a presence in fifteen European and APAC markets.

      CEO Achim Berge Olsen commented: "Skyborn Renewables will combine the team's experience with GIP's financial strength and track record of investing in renewables assets to the deployment of offshore wind energy for the benefit of future generations. Our mission is to address the global challenges of the climate crisis and energy security."

      In addition to Berge Olsen, the newly-appointed management team includes:

      João Metelo, Chief Investment and Financial Officer (CIFO), who has over 23 years of international experience,

      Morten Melin, Co-Chief Operating Officer (COO), who will join the team in March 2023, an industry expert with more than 25 years of offshore wind experience,

      Thomas Karst, Co-Chief Operating Officer (COO), who has almost 25 years of relevant industry and leadership experience and a strong focus on successful customer projects,

      Lars Muck, Chief Technology Officer (CTO), who has over 25 years of industry and leadership experience,

      Cathrin Browne, General Counsel (GC), who will join the team in November 2022, has over 12 years of experience and has held senior positions at market leading companies and law firms.

      To support the team and strengthen its operating capabilities, Skyborn Renewables will open an office in Hamburg.

      "GIP identified offshore wind as an important component of the transition to clean, renewable power. The investment in Skyborn is a significant milestone and demonstrates GIP's commitment to the continued growth of global renewable power generation," said Adebayo Ogunlesi, Chairman and CEO of GIP.
