Subsea inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR) firm N-Sea has appointed Arno van Poppel as their new chief executive.
Arno van Poppel has taken over from Gerard Keser, who stepped down after eight years in charge.
As well as providing IMR services for clients in the oil and gas sector, N-Sea has been expanding into the renewables sector.
It has won a number of contracts for the detection and disposal of unexploded bombs bombs prior to cable trenching operations on the seabed.
Arno van Poppel has joined the company from Dutch contractor Boskalis’ subsea cables and flexible division.
He said: “My experience aligns with the development of N-Sea, and I believe that the company is a thriving, independent platform which is ready for further growth. As we work in alliance with our partners in a number of key disciplines, I look forward to helping shape the company into a top tier player in the subsea infrastructure arena.”
