Swire Blue Ocean has appointed Mikkel Gleerup as Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
Gleerup joined the company as Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) in February 2017.
Since November 2017, Gleerup has been Interim CEO and the board has now decided that he is the right person to lead Swire Blue Ocean into the future, the company said.
Headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark, Swire Blue Ocean supports the installation of offshore wind farms and operates two wind farm installation vessels (WIVs), Pacific Orca and Pacific Osprey.
In addition to the WIVs, the company supports the installation of offshore wind farms by offering parent company Swire Pacific Offshore’s fleet of over 80 support vessels.
In June 2016, Siemens contracted Swire Blue Ocean for the provision of a WIV for the installation of 84 Siemens 7MW turbines at the 588MW Beatrice offshore wind farm.
