Head Energy is proud to announce the acquisition of a majority share of the Odense-based electrical engineering company DanGrid. DanGrid will become a subsidiary of Head Energy’s Danish group and continue under its new name, Head Energy DanGrid ApS.
Further, Head Energy has appointed Mads Vinter Hansen as Director of Head Energy Group’s Danish and German activities – Head Energy Denmark A/S. Anders Frederiksen remains General Manager of Head Energy Denmark’s offshore wind consulting unit.
DanGrid was established in 2011 as an advisory electrical engineering company specializing in grid connection, wind power and power plants. DanGrid is based in Odense and has 8 employees, including management.
With the inclusion of DanGrid, Head Energy takes an important step in widening the renewables portfolio and securing a team of experienced electrical engineers with first class grid and high-voltage experience, says Head of Business Development and co-founder of Head Energy Group, Nils Haukeland.
“DanGrid represents a strong professional culture and a forward minded approach that is a good fit with Head Energy’s strategy and values. DanGrid has a solid project portfolio and a great reputation in Denmark. They have also operated on onshore wind projects in Norway since 2011 and intend to follow their clients to Sweden, which means they already cover Head Energy’s core markets geographically. Head Energy will work together with the DanGrid team in the planned expansion in Scandinavia, supporting the green energy transition” says Nils Haukeland.
-During a thorough and transparent process, we have become certain that joining Head Energy Group presents a great framework for the continued growth of DanGrid, including access to highly interesting markets in both Norway and Sweden. A very solid commercial and administrative setup, multiple frame agreements, and the right level of autonomy makes Head Energy Group an attractive co-owner. We are confident that our employees and our culture will be welcomed and nurtured along with the Head Energy culture and look very much forward to starting the final integration process, say the three main owners and managers of DanGrid, Esben Højgaard, Christian Sanddal Nielsen and Jan Rosenmaj Pedersen.
Mads Vinter Hansen appointed Director of Head Energy Group’s Danish and German activities.
In connection with the acquisition of DanGrid, Head Energy has modified the corporate structure in Denmark and Germany to support the expanding footprint. Mads Vinter Hansen has been appointed Director of Head Energy Denmark A/S, which will serve as the Danish holding company and administrative hub of the new setup. Anders Frederiksen will remain General Manager of the offshore wind consulting business, operating under the legal and commercial name Head Energy Denmark Consulting A/S going forward.
Head Energy Germany will also continue its operations as a subsidiary of the new structure.
“I am very excited to join Head Energy Denmark and look forward to working with many highly talented and inspiring professionals. My job will be to facilitate further growth within offshore wind and Power to X, and to streamline our commercial efforts across our existing and future business units and teams”, says Mads Vinter Hansen, who will assume the direct leadership of Head Energy DanGrid, together with existing management, as well as Head Energy Germany, while Anders Frederiksen and his team handle the Danish consulting business.
Anders Frederiksen has spearheaded Head Energy’s offshore wind consulting in Denmark since the launch in 2016.
“I believe the new setup will be highly beneficial for our consulting business and allow us to be fully dedicated to sales, business development and delivering second to none support to our customers and employees, with the certainty that we have an experienced and strategically strong organization behind us”, says Anders Frederiksen.
Chairman of the board, Flemming N. Enevoldsen, adds: “The journey with Head Energy in Denmark since 2016 has been exciting. And with the addition of DanGrid and with a strong & experienced leadership team of Mads Vinter Hansen, Anders Frederiksen and the 3 founders of DanGrid, we have a solid foundation for further growth. Mads Vinter Hansen has been on the board of directors, and he knows our organization and our business very well, and considering his experience and track-record, we are confident that he is the right person to head our operations in Denmark and Germany”.
