(Bloomberg) -- BP Plc is continuing to reshuffle key roles as the energy giant pushes ahead with its plan to flesh out its low-carbon division.
The London-based oil major is two years into a strategic shift away from fossil fuels and toward cleaner energy. The moves come just as its newly-appointed head of low-carbon, Anja-Isabel Dotzenrath, is set to join the company from RWE Renewables.
BP has hired Mattias Bausenwein from wind giant Orsted A/S, where he was president for the Asia-Pacific region. Bausenwein will join the company as senior vice president of offshore wind in the second half of the year. Earlier this month, BP won the rights to develop 2.9 gigawatts of offshore wind power in Scotland, in what is expected to be a $10 billion project.
It has also moved a number of executives internally, with Felipe Arbelaez becoming SVP for hydrogen and CCS, from his current role as SVP for zero carbon energy. Arbelaez replaces Louise Jacobson-Plutt who will become SVP for finance and procruement.
David Anderson, who currently leads renewable growth, has been named SVP for solar and onshore wind.
Arbelaez, Anderson and Jacobson-Plutt’s roles become effective March 1, the same day Dotzenrath assumes her own role.
