Fjord Base Group appoints Emilie Reeve to its Board of Directors to support its renewable energy expansion

Fjord Base Group is pleased to introduce Emilie Reeve as a new Director on the Board. Emilie has 15 years extensive experience within the offshore wind sector working across Asia, Europe and the US. She has advised various government ministries and developers on their offshore wind strategies, served as technical advisor to METI on Japanese offshore wind Round 1 lease, was technical advisor to The Crown Estate for UK offshore wind Round 4 tender, and more recently was CEO of Kontiki Winds developing offshore wind projects across the Norwegian, US and Mediterranean markets. Emilie’s accomplishments span diverse international projects.

Emilie Reeve joins the Board alongside the existing board members Tore Land (Chairman of the Board), Eldar Sætre (former CEO of Equinor), Geir Johannessen (former CEO of Fjord Base Group), and shareholder representatives of the Fjord Base Group.

Emilie Reeve comments: “As someone who is passionate about the energy transition and has spent most of my career in offshore wind, I am delighted to be working with the Fjord Base team to further expand its offshore wind plans and help grow the base into a true energy hub. Fjord Base Group has built an exceptional reputation as the largest leading Norwegian supply base and attracted a wealth of top tier supply chain companies to the base.”

“As the Norwegian, UK and North Sea offshore wind markets continue to expand, supply bases like Fjord Base are critical in enabling offshore wind construction at the pace that is needed to achieve energy transition targets. As a longstanding service provider of O&G projects, Fjord Base already has the necessary facilities and equipment required for delivering offshore wind today, as well as actively preparing for the energy transition world of tomorrow. With the team looking at port expansion, green fuel production options and other innovative ways to service the market, Fjord Base is a leader in its field.”

Tore Land, Chairman of Fjord Base Group, says: “We are delighted to have Emilie Reeve join the board, further strengthening the board’s expertise within renewables and offshore wind. Offshore wind is an important part of Fjord Base Group’s business plan going forward, and we look forward to Emilie contributing her extensive insight and experience in this field.”

Besides enjoying discussing wind, Emilie spends most of her time with her family running around after her two sons. She also loves to be by the ocean and if she gets a spare moment, you’ll be sure to find her either out on the water sailing, or underwater scuba diving.
