Forewind, an offshore wind consortium comprising innogy, SSE, Statoil and Statkraft, has appointed Trevor Baker as its new General Manager.

Forewind has development consent orders for 4.8GW of offshore wind at Dogger Bank in the North Sea, comprising four individual 1.2GW projects. The general manager is responsible for 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.

Baker 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.

He joined Galloper from Triton Knoll Wind Farm where he managed the preparation of the consent order application and led the project through the examination, securing consent for up to 1,200MW, which in 2014 was the world’s largest offshore wind farm consent.

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.
