PAUL IDZIAK JOINS BLADE MAINTENANCE SPECIALIST GEV WIND POWER AS US CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
EV Wind Power has announced the appointment of Paul Idziak as Chief Executive Officer of GEV Wind Power US LLC (GEV). Paul has also been appointed to the Board of GEV Wind Power Lab Group.
Paul is a seasoned wind energy executive with leadership experience across various disciplines, enjoying an outstanding record of building profitable business divisions for Shermco Industries and Infrastructure & Energy Alternatives Services Group (IEA), a wind farm installation and services contractor, where he recently served as Vice President of Business Development.
David Fletcher, Chief Executive Officer of GEV Wind Power Lab Group spoke about the appointment:
“We are delighted to welcome Paul to the business and board of GEV, bringing his many years of experience leading renewable divisions in the United States. We look forward to Paul helping us to drive our US growth strategy going forward, with the aim of achieving our goal of being the partner of choice to our North American based clients, for all their blade maintenance requirements”.
Paul Idziak added,
“I am thrilled to be joining GEV to continue my career focusing on the wind energy sector and be part of the transformation of the industry over the coming years, as the maintenance market continues to mature and consolidate. GEV is well supported and has an excellent platform to lead this process and I am looking forward to working with David and my US based team to support our current and future clients”.
GEV provides high-value blade repair and maintenance services to wind farm manufacturers and operators in the UK, Europe and the US, operating both onshore and in complex offshore environments. Wind turbine blades are susceptible to erosion and weather damage, which affects aerodynamic efficiency and reduces their energy production (and can sometimes stop the turbine operating altogether). GEV specialises in providing expert technicians to repair blades, reducing downtime and maximising production. It has repaired over 5,000 turbines to date across multi-brand platforms – and with turbines increasing in size and rotating faster, making them more prone to damage, GEV has a vital role to play in supporting the growth and resilience of this sector.
