Jan Alne is our new advisor for stakeholders at Birkeland

Jan Alne joins our team as a communication advisor, who will engage in dialogue and negotiations with landowners, existing businesses, and other stakeholders in Sauda, particularly in the industrial area of Birkeland.

We are pleased to welcome Jan Alne to our team as an advisor, bringing extensive expertise in local development in Sauda municipality through various leadership roles in Statkraft and Sauda Vekst AS Vekst. Jan will engage in dialogue and negotiations with landowners, existing businesses, and other stakeholders in Sauda, particularly in the industrial area of Birkeland. 

"Sauda has over a hundred years of rich industrial heritage, rooted in clean and renewable hydropower. Establishing a green ammonia production facility at Birkeland opens doors to new opportunities for Sauda's community development and makes a significant contribution to the green transition — a cause I'm passionate about," says Jan Alne.

Hege Økland, CEO of Iverson eFuels, highlights the importance of Jan's experience in large-scale development projects and his deep understanding of local dynamics for the project. "We're delighted to welcome Jan to our team. Effective communication and collaboration with all stakeholders is essential to the success of our project, and Jan's expertise will contribute to developing these relationships," says Hege.

Together with HUB coordinator Gunnar Andre Gauthun, Torfinn Opheim, Ghostavo Halawy, Project Director Andrew Holmes, and Hege Økland, Jan is committed to securing a good dialogue with all stakeholders affected by our project.
