Geir Larsen is to take over as Managing Director of Norwegian Electric Systems (NES) in order to further develop the companys position in energy design and smart control as part of the green shift.

Larsen is 50 years old and has extensive management experience from the Norwegian maritime and marine technology industry. He has previously been at the helm of Vard Aukra, Inpower and ABAS Crane, and has also worked in aquaculture, including for the AKVA Group. His background is in electrical engineering and automation, and he is well acquainted with the market for electric and hybrid solutions, especially from his time in charge of the development of Inpower AS, which was acquired by Bertel O Steen Power Solutions in 2016.

Larsen will replace Johannes Tveit, who has been acting MD since February. Tveit will now return to his position as SVP Service and Aftermarket.

Chair of the NES Board Vegard Sævik said: "Geir has long experience of managing and developing both start-ups and well-established technology companies. We have great expectations that he will further develop Norwegian Electric Systems’ strong expertise and technology base, thereby enabling the company to achieve new market positions both in Norway and internationally."

Larsen said: "Norwegian Electric Systems is a well-established company with highly competent employees and innovative and reliable products. I look forward to playing a part in further developing Norwegian Electric Systems in the field of electrification and digitalisation of the international vessel fleet. It is not often you get the chance to lead a company whose technology is so forward-looking and sustainable, and that is in such a good position to contribute to the green shift in shipping."
