Kongsberg Gets New Offshore Production Business Manager

Kongsberg Maritime has appointed a new business manager for the Offshore Production division of its base in Aberdeen.

David Wilson has over 27 years’ experience in the marine engineering industry, the vast majority of which has been spent with Kongsberg Maritime. He has played an integral role within a number of teams, holding key positions within technical sales and business development, covering Offshore Support, Offshore Survey and Construction, Merchant Shipping, Marine Research and Naval markets, Kongsberg wrote in a press release.

Since 2012, David has held the position of general manager, Kongsberg Maritime Middle East DMCCO (Dubai) and returns to Aberdeen to manage the company’s Offshore Production division, focusing on its integrated control and safety systems (ICSS).

Commenting on David’s appointment, Frank McLean, general manager of Kongsberg Maritime’s Aberdeen base said: “David brings a wealth of experience to our Offshore Production division, having an impressive track record of sales and business development across the company.

“This is a period of challenge for the offshore industry, and there is no doubt that David has the capacity to strengthen Kongsberg’s offering of attractive full-scale integrated asset management solutions and services to our customers.”

Commenting on his appointment, Wilson said: “My focus in the Middle East was customer support, and this will be valuable on my return to lead the Offshore Production team in Aberdeen. Kongsberg Maritime currently has topside automation on several oil and gas production units in the UK sector, and recent major contract wins with Statoil (Mariner) and BWO (Catcher) demonstrate clear market recognition of our strengthening capabilities.

“I look forward to working with our customers to continue to offer the very best solutions, products and services.”
