Hegge has extensive experience from senior leadership positions from both finance and operations, roles that are well suited for Scatec’s growth journey. He will be a solid addition to our management team, supporting our growth ambitions and strategy to develop, own, and operate renewable energy and green hydrogen across our focus markets,” says Scatec CEO Terje Pilskog.

“I would like to thank and congratulate Mikkel for his invaluable leadership role as CFO over the past 8 years. I am looking forward to continuing working closely with Mikkel in his new role,” adds Pilskog.

“I very much look forward to being a part of Scatec’s new management team. Working in the largest renewables company listed on the Oslo stock exchange is exciting and I am eager to contribute to the growth journey the company has started on,” says Hans Jakob Hegge.
