The management of ILF Beratende Ingenieure GmbH will be reorganised at the beginning of the year.

Marcus Herrmann will take over the management of the operational areas of network expansion and mobility, among others. Fred Wendt, who has held this position since 2018, will move to the ILF Group as Executive Vice President and will be responsible for the main business area "Energy and Climate Protection". ILF Germany, based in Munich, will continue its proven dual leadership concept, with Herrmann now managing the operational business alongside Tobias Walk. Walk has been part of the management team since 2018, and will in future be responsible for the "Renewable Energies & Hydrogen" and "Pipelines & Plant Construction" divisions.

Prior to joining the management team at ILF Germany, Marcus Herrmann was managing director for Germany at the planning and consulting company Arcadis since 2014 and was most recently responsible for the international division. "I am delighted to have Marcus Herrmann, an experienced industry expert, on board and look forward to continuing ILF's success story together," says Tobias Walk. "We consider it a stroke of luck that we were able to recruit him for this position in our company", concludes Klaus Lässer, CEO of the ILF Group, "I am sure that we will soon benefit from his entrepreneurial spirit and industry knowledge". Mr Lässer was equally pleased with the appointment of Fred Wendt, a proven energy expert, to the ILF Group. With this reinforcement, the company will be able to contribute even more intensively to the challenges of the global energy transition.

In recent years, ILF has increasingly focused on projects that make an important contribution to a more sustainable energy supply. In Germany, ILF is focusing on the development of new, innovative competencies such as green hydrogen and the future use and storage of CO2. At the same time, the company is building on its long-standing client relationships in its existing business areas, such as power lines and pipelines, as well as renewable energy and large heat pumps.

ILF's current projects include the power lines SuedLink and Rhein-Main-Link power lines, the Hyperlink H2 network, the Esbjerg and Aalborg large heat pumps, the 2nd main line in Munich, the extension of the U5 underground in Hamburg and hybrid PV power plants with battery storage in West Africa. The company is also planning the Hyphen project in Namibia, one of the world's largest hydrogen projects at three gigawatts.

ILF currently employs around 1,200 people in German-speaking countries and is increasingly looking for engineers, as the management believes that the number of employees can easily be doubled in view of the order situation.
