Rolf Jansson appointed CEO of Aspo Group

Aspo Plc’s Board of Directors has appointed Rolf Jansson as the new CEO of Aspo. Jansson is expected to start in his new role latest at the beginning of October.

Aspo’s current CEO Aki Ojanen informed the Board of Directors earlier that he will use the opportunity to retire in 2021 at the age of sixty. In accordance with the jointly agreed schedule, Ojanen will continue as the CEO and the Chairman of the Boards of Aspo’s subsidiaries as usual until Jansson starts in the role.

Rolf Jansson is currently the President and CEO of VR Group. Jansson has worked for VR Group since 2009. Prior to his appointment as the CEO of VR Group in 2016, he first worked as the company's Senior Vice President of Corporate Development and then at VR Transpoint, where he was responsible for business reform and competitiveness development. He has also previously worked as an Executive Director at Nordea Corporate Finance and as a management consultant at Booz Allen Hamilton. Jansson has a master's degree in engineering and a master's degree in economics.

“Rolf's business acumen and extensive managerial experience are an excellent starting point for the position of Aspo's CEO. He also has strong understanding of logistics and the Eastern market – both of great importance for Aspo's businesses. The selection of the CEO was preceded by a thorough recruitment process, and Rolf’s experience and expertise best met our requirements. I believe that Rolf is the right person to lead Aspo in the years to come and to take care of creating shareholder value in a responsible and stakeholder-friendly way,” said Gustav Nyberg, Chairman of Aspo’s Board of Directors.

“I look forward to the opportunity to learn more about Aspo’s team and businesses. I am convinced that Aspo is in a good position to succeed in the post-Covid economy. My goal is to further develop Aspo's business portfolio holistically and sustainably, focusing on both growth and profitability,” said Rolf Jansson.

Statkraft bygger tre vindparker i Chile – verdens sørligste land12.4.2021 12:00:00 CEST | Pressemelding

(Santiago/Oslo, 12. april 2021) Statkraft skal for første gang bygge vindkraftverk i Chile, og øker dermed sin produksjonskapasitet for fornybar energi i det søramerikanske landet, hvor etterspørselen etter vann-, vind- og solkraft er stigende. Sammen med selskapets eksisterende vannkraftportefølje i Chile, vil Statkraft nå en produksjonskapasitet på 366 megawatt (MW) innen utgangen av 2023. Det 102 MW store vindprosjektet Torsa består av tre vindparker, med til sammen 19 turbiner fra den tyske produsenten Nordex. Samlet forventes vindparkene å produsere mer enn 300 GWh med fornybar energi i året – nok til å forsyne 100.000 gjennomsnittlige chilenske hjem. Prosjektet ligger i O’Higgins-regionen, 124 kilometer sør for hovedstaden Santiago. - Disse tre vindparkene øker ikke bare vår produksjonskapasitet i Chile; de utvider vår fornybarportefølje til å for første gang omfatte vindkraft. Framover planlegger vi også å inkludere solkraft i produksjonsmiksen vår, sier Statkrafts konserndirekt
