Seaway Heavy Lifting repositions itself

The Division Renewable Energy for Subsea 7 S.A. is now starting a 50% joint venture with Seaway Heavy Lifting (SHL). Through the consolidation, Subsea 7 hopes it can better serve the offshore wind energy market as an offshore construction and marine operations partner within SSE’s Offshore Wind Alliance. For their part, SHL is expanding their engineering and project management competence through the merger and hopes to tackle even larger offshore projects in the future.

In succession, Jan Willem van der Graaf, the former Senior Vice President of Renewable Energy at Subsea 7, is now the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of SHL. SHL's former CEO, Martin Spaans has left the company after twenty years of service. Besides van der Graaf, Bob Dunsmore from Subsea 7 management will also join SHL's management team. So the new SHL executive management team is composed as follows: Jan Willem van der Graaf (CEO), Arjan van der Laan (CFO), Huib Oosterveld (COO), Koen van der Perk (Senior VP commercial), Bob Dunsmore (Senior VP renewable energy), and Wim van der Velde (CTO).

SHL was active in the last three years, among other things, with their vessels Stanislav Yudin and Oleg Strashnov in the projects Greater Gabbard und Sheringham Shoal. The latest projects include Riffgat and Borkum West 2 in Germany, as well as Gwynt-y-Mor on the coast of Wales.
