Finnish company Steerprop has strengthened its presence in China and Southeast Asia by appointing two propulsion and vessel engineering experts, Ayhwa Ngoh as Regional Sales Manager in Singapore and Robbie Wang as General Manager, Sales in China.

Wang has graduated from Wuhan University of Technology, majoring in Marine Power system, and he started in the marine business as a design engineer at Jiangnan Shipbuilding.

Wang said: “I joined Rolls-Royce Marine China in 2001, where I held different manager positions in sales, contract management and service sales. As a marine insider, I pay close attention to sustainable solutions as well as to the latest technologies, and in these senses Steerprop is one of the leading propulsion manufacturing companies in the world.”

Ngoh has worked on various marine projects for 17 years, and he has experience from both technical and commercial projects on local and global levels. He is stationed in Singapore but will represent Steerprop in the whole of Southeast Asia. Before joining Steerprop, he worked as Regional Sales manager and Naval Architect for Wärtsilä Ship Design in Southeast Asia, Middle East and Taiwan.

Ngoh said: “The work involved identifying future trends and to give customers solutions to technical issues as well as to develop new business opportunities. This new job is truly inspiring, since Steerprop offers tailormade propulsion systems for even the most demanding conditions.”

Both will report to Juho Rekola, Director Sales and Project Management, who said: “They both have a solid knowledge of marine propulsion solutions and a 'resolve to perform' attitude, and now we are able to serve our customers better worldwide. These appointments strengthen our presence in the region and make it possible to serve our customers better, starting from the concept and construction phases, up to the operation and maintenance of vessels.”
