Well-known Profiles from Top of the Wind Industry to Boost Acceleration of

A-LEAF’s Global Growth


To meet the continuing global growth in wind turbine projects, specialist company A-LEAF is now adding even more capability to its international expertise, global upscaling and strategic direction. Three of the industry’s top people, from both onshore and offshore wind power will join the board of directors and boost A-LEAF’s global profile within WTG, foundations and heavy steel structures.


Following a slight global downturn in the annual total installed wind power capacity in 2017 and 2018 compared to 2015 and 2016, the growth forecasts for 2019-2022 are extremely positive. This is due to such factors as massive investments in the global wind energy market, which is helping to jump-start a larger number of wind turbine projects around the world (GWEC Global Wind 2017 Report).


The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) expects an annual total installed wind power capacity increase of 8.8% from 2018 to 2019 and an additional 8.4% from 2019 to 2020.

As an industry supplier, now is the time to act if you want to be part of the continuing growing number of global wind power projects.


This is why the wind industry specialist and know-how company A-LEAF is fully underway in upgrading its capability, so that it can manage and support the growing global market. In this regard, A-LEAF has entered into a forthcoming collaboration with a board of directors that will include some heavy experienced and well-known profiles from the top of the wind industry.


“Even though we have already some of the industry’s most experienced offshore and onshore wind power experts, I’m convinced that we can always improve ourselves. By having the necessary knowledge within the individual international markets, within global upscaling, and within strategic direction, we will become even more professionalised ensuring that we can follow the global growth. A collaboration with a strong future board of directors will help this happen.” (Anders G. Larsen, CEO at A-LEAF)


The board of directors will include some very well-known profiles from the on- and offshore industry and will jumpstart the collaboration with A-LEAF at the WindEnergy trade fair in Hamburg. Here they will be ready to meet future and existing A-LEAF customers in Hall B1 EG, stand 320 on 27 September at 15:00–18:00 PM.


The upcoming board of directors: Ole Teglgaard, Jens Frederik Hansen, and Bo Moerup.


Ole Teglgaard, CEO at Resolux (coming chairman of the board of directors at A-LEAF), has more than 20 years of experience in the wind industry and his extensive experience includes board of directors’ work; e.g. he is the current chairman of the board of directors of the Danish Wind Export Association (DWEA) and Quantec.


“I see great growth potential at A-LEAF, in which I would like to support them. By virtue of my extensive industry experience, my experience with starting up my own company (Resolux) and entering the global market, I am certain that I can support, in particular, the global upscaling.” (Ole Teglgaard, CEO at Resolux)


Anders G. Larsen (CEO and owner of A-LEAF) and Ole Teglgaard first met in 2006 at Suzlon, where in collaboration they helped deliver an innovative optimisation of tower internal processes.


Jens Frederik Hansen, consultant in offshore wind, has also been CEO at A2Sea, Suzlon and Bladt Industries, and has held board of directors positions, including at the Danish Wind Industry Association and Brøndum. Anders and Jens Frederik have known each other since their time at Suzlon.


“I have extensive experience in the major global wind growth markets, and I therefore have no doubt whatsoever that I can contribute to A-LEAF with my extensive international market expertise.”  (Jens Frederik Hansen, Consultant in offshore wind).


Bo Moerup, Founder & Senior Advisor at Depeche Consulting, has 23 years of experience in the wind turbine industry. Two decades ago, Anders and Bo worked together at NEG Micon, where Bo was employed as the General Manager. Since then, Bo Moerup has held leading positions, such as Vice President at Vestas Offshore and at Vestas Global Service, and most recently, CEO at the Nordex Group (Germany). He also has board of directors experience from the IT sector.


“I have extensive knowledge in the production and sale of wind turbines, which means I can support A-LEAF to maintain the correct strategic focus.”  (Bo Moerup, Founder & Senior Advisor at Depeche Consulting)


A-LEAF is looking very much forward to the impending cooperation with the board of directors.
