Brynolf Alexandersson has been appointed President of Holmen Energi AB. He is currently president of Umeå Energi Elnät AB and will take up his new position in August 2007.

The Holmen Group’s Holmen Energi business area has responsibility for energy-related aspects of the Group’s business, in particular the procurement of electricity for Holmen’s mills. In Sweden around one-third of these requirements are sourced from around 20 wholly and partly owned hydro power stations, for which Holmen Energi has operative responsibility. In a normal year production at these power stations amounts to approximately 1.1 TWh.

Holmen Energi’s annual turnover amounts to some MSEK 1,500. The company has around 10 employees.

Brynolf Alexandersson will succeed Sven Wird, who is head of Group Technology within Holmen and Acting President of Holmen Energi.
