Jakobsen will be filling in for the company’s current CFO Karl Lawenius who will be away on the paternity leave until the end of July 2022.

Engaged as a consultant for Ocean Sun, Jakobsen has significant experience from the CFO role from previous positions in Brady Energy Norway, Norema and Edda Media Buskerud.

Further, Jakobsen provides broad business experience within management, business development and procurement, Ocean Sun said. He will be engaged in the position for the entire period of Laweinus’ leave.

By combining Norwegian maritime expertise and knowledge within photovoltaics, Ocean Sun has developed an innovation that offers a bold solution to global energy needs.

The patented technology is based on solar modules mounted on hydro-elastic membranes and is said to offer cost and performance benefits not seen in any other floating PV system today.

With offices in Oslo, Singapore and Shanghai, Ocean Sun aims to be the world’s leading technology provider of floating solar.

To remind, Ocean Sun signed an agreement late in September 2021 to license its proprietary floating solar technology to the developer Sunneng Technology for the construction of a 1MWp pilot in China’s Province of Shandong.
