Staehr appointed as Welcon chairman

Published Date: 18 August 2009
WELCON Towers, the wind turbine shaft maker based in Campbeltown, yesterday unveiled Per Staehr as its chairman. Welcon was setup in March after Danish firm Skykon bought the former Vestas facility in Argyll.
Staehr was previously chairman of Denmark-based A2SEA – which specialises in the installation of offshore wind farms – before its acquisition by Dong Energy in June this year. He is currently on the board of Houston-based Trico Marine Services, an offshore and subsea services group and Aim-listed LPA.
