Organisational change


A year ago BWSC implemented a new organisational structure designed to achieve functional excellence and to strengthen the value we deliver to our clients, partners and wider society. A major change included the transfer of commercial activities into three business areas; Biomass-to-energy, Waste-to-energy and Hybrid Energy Systems. These units have for the past year been managed separately to ensure strong management focus in each area, with the objective of remaining competitive in a transitional energy market.

I am pleased to inform that the organisational restructure has been a success and after a year of maturing the reorganised BWSC, the next natural step is to consolidate our commercial activities into one function covering all three business areas.

Director, Flemming Juel Jensen, will be overall responsible for the new consolidated function, which will be named “Sales & Business Development”.

The new consolidated function will maintain and further develop our strong customer relationships and identify and mature sales opportunities within our focus markets. We will furthermore invest extra resources in our continued efforts to understand the dynamics and mechanisms of our current and future focus markets.

Thank you for your support. I look forward to our journey ahead.

Yours truly,

Nikolaj Holmer Nissen
