The Board of Tree Energy Solutions (“TES”), a world-scale green hydrogen company with a mission to deliver on a net-zero future by decarbonising the energy chain, is pleased to announce the appointment of Alexandra Pieton as Chief Projects Officer.
Alexandra Pieton brings over 20 years of valuable experience in the global energy industry and has held senior positions in engineering, project execution, operations and business management in key strategic markets such as the US, U.K., Malaysia, Indonesia and France. Before joining TES, Alexandra spent more than 15 years at Technip and TechnipFMC where she most recently served as Vice President Hydrogen Product Line and Vice President Energy Transition Strategy.
This senior appointment strengthens TES’ unique, sustainable business model as it aims to accelerate the clean energy transition and make its contribution to energy security. In Wilhelmshaven, TES is building the largest Green Energy Hub in Europe offering a unique model to convert large amounts of renewable electrons from sunny and windy locations into green hydrogen and affordable, renewable gas. The green hydrogen terminal in Wilhelmshaven will serve as the primary entry point for clean, safe, affordable and abundant sustainable energy in Europe, as well as a catalyst for a circular carbon economy. TES will import green hydrogen from its upstream projects in the form of renewable LNG using green hydrogen and circular CO₂.
In July 2022, the company announced the successful fundraising of €65m. The fundraising was backed by a global investor base comprising leading financial institutions such as HSBC and UniCredit as well as international energy corporations. Most recently, TES and global energy players E.ON and ENGIE were selected by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection to jointly develop and implement the fifth Floating Storage Regasification Unit (“FSRU”) in Germany. The FSRU will fast-track TES’ Wilhelmshaven hydrogen terminal which is now scheduled to commence operations in 2025.
Alexandra Pieton, Chief Projects Officer of TES, said: “I am excited to join the impressive team at TES and become an integral part of the company’s vision to deliver affordable green energy. I look forward to making my contribution in the implementation of the next generation of green energy infrastructure. Energy is everyone’s reality and delivering this historic transition to net zero is our mission.”
