With effect from 1st January 2021, industrial engineer Matthias Ohl (Figure 1) has taken up the post of Technical Director at STEAG Fernwärme GmbH, an Essen-based subsidiary of the energy company STEAG GmbH.
“STEAG Fernwärme is remarkably customer-focused. That provides an ideal breeding ground for new business models,” Ohl remarks in explaining what motivated him to take on a new career challenge at STEAG. Prior to his move to Essen, Ohl spent five years as Head of Power & District Heating Generation at WSW Energie und Wasser AG in Wuppertal.
At STEAG Fernwärme, he succeeds Markus Manderfeld, who cites personal reasons for his decision not to extend his contract, which still runs until the end of March 2021. (STEAG/Si.)
