A new board and nomination committee were elected at GCE Ocean Technology’s annual meeting 9 May.

Remi Andre Breivik, Director of Service LoF Projects Subsea Services at TechnipFMC, was re-elected as the Chairman of the Board.

– I am honoured to continue serving as the chairman of the board and am excited about further developing one of Norway's strongest industry-driven clusters, says Breivik.

GCE Ocean Technology comprises partners and members from various sectors, including industry, academia and institutes, entrepreneurs, capital-, and public institutions.

– The rise of offshore wind, hydrogen, carbon capture and storage, and the potential market of marine minerals are emerging markets that present numerous opportunities for the cluster's members in addition to low emission oil and gas market, says Breivik. –The board's primary goal is to ensure that the clusters’ activities align with market developments.
