Construction is responsible for installation, commission and finally handover of wind farms to the client. Working closely together with the client and other stakeholders is a key parameter to ensure this happens safely, efficiently and with a high-quality standard.

The Performance Managers focus is to review and ensure that our construction projects are undertaken according to plan regarding cost and that deviations are understood and known. For that the Performance Manager is working closely together with a high number of Project Managers and other internal functions to find out root causes of unexpected developments, define and carry out possible mitigation actions (processes, closing knowledge gaps, etc.) to avoid similar deviations happen again or happen as well in other projects. Analytic skills, a collaborative approach to various internal stakeholders and interest in questioning the status-quo are key to this function.
