Two companies in the Wallenius Wilhelmsen group, NorSea and Abnormal Load Services (ALS), have formed a new company, Elevon, that will focus exclusively on handling and shipping components for the wind energy industry
Elevon chief executive Knut Magne Johannessen said, “Big opportunities need a singular focus. A pure-play strategy allows Elevon to anticipate and respond quickly to client needs, attract industry-specific talent, go all-in in tailoring operations for wind project delivery.”
The companies are already established in the wind industry and will combine their strengths in large and complex projects and offshore supply logistics.
Wallenius Wilhelmsen and the Wilhelmsen group, owners of ALS and NorSea, will provide additional support through global networks.
The new venture will provide project advisory services, logistics management and solutions, as well as technical services to the wind industry.
Elevon chief operating officer Ian LaPointe said, “We’re excited to introduce the capabilities of Elevon to the wind industry. The experience and strengths of our owners, ALS and NorSea, paired with the global networks and resources of Wallenius Wilhelmsen and Wilhelmsen, allow us to bring new capabilities and integrated solutions to wind projects – both onshore and offshore.
“Fast growth in the wind industry has created complex challenges for project logistics. In response to this change, the decision was made to establish a dedicated, forward-looking company, focusing only on wind logistics. Elevon was conceived to grow with the developing needs and expectations of the market.”
