Ulrika looks back on a long career within ABB Group – where she worked on Offshore Wind Connections amongst others – and lately Hitachi Energy. She is a passionate leader with a strong business mindset, high energy level and drive for business and organisational development.  

Ulrika: “What attracted me to join Vattenfall is what the company stands for and its frontrunner position in the energy industry. I much look forward to contributing to this growth in my role as Onshore Wind Head.” 

“I am very happy to welcome Ulrika in BA Wind. She joins at a time that is characterised by a complex market environment and conflicting interests making co-existence necessary. Both of which we need to carefully navigate so that we can deliver on the needed build-out for onshore wind. I’m confident that Ulrika’s knowledge, drive and personality will be an important contribution to our business and future successful growth”, says Helene Biström, Head of BA Wind.  

Until Ulrika is in place, Jaap Kleerebezem remains acting, alongside his role as Director of Operations Onshore.
