Sarens has opened a new Wind Service company in Helsinki, Finland - Sarens Wind Service Finland Oy
The new business will be led by managing director Enrika Uusitalo who has been managing her own business - Lit-Auto which offers solutions for electric vehicle charging and mobility - since 2021, but she also began working with Sarens in January as a key account manager for Sarens Balticum, in Vilnius, Lithuania.
Uusitalo began her career in 2013, working at the Turkish embassy in Vilnius, as an assistant to the commercial counsellor. In 2015 she moved to the Lithuanian Ministry of Education and Science, followed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the European Parliament and was then appointed president of the Lithuanian Youth Association in Finland. Her commercial business career began in 2019 when she joined brand marketing company Transmeri, leaving after two years to set up on her own.
Sarens said: “This milestone is not just significant for us, but it also symbolises our continuous expansion and the growing trust our firm is earning in the market. Enrika's blend of exceptional professionalism and passion aligns perfectly with our vision for development and excellence. Her leadership skills, deep industry insights, and dedication to fostering lasting business relationships position our Helsinki branch as a strategic hub in our operations.”
Sarens regional director for Northern and Eastern Europe Mariusz Sudoł said: “Through Sarens Wind Service, we would like to provide maintenance services for wind farms in Finland and Sweden and we will continue service work in the UK, Ireland and Germany. By 2025, we aim to have individual and robust departments for turbine construction, offshore building and service, and blade repair. We will also be opening an academy to provide training related to BTT, sea survival, hub and nacelle.”
