Abnormal Load Services (ALS) has announced together with Norsea, part of the Wilhelmsen Group, the launch of a new logistics company Elevon, whose sole focus is to support the wind industry.
“Big opportunities need a singular focus. The pure-play strategy allows Elevon to anticipate and respond quicker to client needs, attract industry-specific talent, go ‘all-in’ in tailoring operations for wind project delivery, and make very specific investments to support clients in the wind industry.” says CEO of Elevon, Knut Magne Johannessen.
Elevon is a new venture between ALS and Norsea, companies already established within the wind industry. They will combine their strengths in large and complex project logistics and offshore supply logistics. Further in the background, Wallenius Wilhelmsen and the Wilhelmsen group, owners of ALS and NorSea respectively, will provide additional support through global networks. Elevon will provide project advisory services, logistics management and solutions, as well as technical services to the wind industry.
“We’re excited to introduce the capabilities of Elevon to the wind industry. The experience and strengths of our owners, ALS and NorSea, paired with the global networks and resources of Wallenius Wilhelmsen and Wilhelmsen, allow us to bring new capabilities and integrated solutions to wind projects – both onshore and offshore,” says CCO of Elevon, Ian LaPointe.
Andrew Civil – ALS’ Head of Commercial and Elevon’s Chief Operations Officer adds “We are all really enthusiastic about this new opportunity which enables ALS to enhance the current services we offer our clients in onshore and offshore renewables.
Contacts within ALS will remain the same for clients for the current time. The only thing that will change are the additional services and expertise we can share as Elevon”.
Elevon is targeting key markets in Europe, USA and Asia but can also provide its services globally. The leadership team for the new venture was selected from ALS and Norsea Group: Knut Magne Johannessen (Norsea) as CEO, Andrew Civil (ALS, UK) as COO, Ian LaPointe (Norsea) as CCO and Wouter Jacquemyn (ALS, Belgium) as Projects Director.
