We are confident that, thanks to his expertise and knowledge of the company and the markets we are operating in, we will continue to drive the positive future development of DeepOcean.

“This leadership change comes after a successful ownership transformation. We would like to thank Bart for his hard work and efforts to execute a successful restructuring and develop DeepOcean into a market leader within subsea services. We are especially grateful that Bart has agreed to remain on the board as a non-executive director.”
