Semco Maritime has nominated former-Vattenfall boss Gunnar Groebler to join its board of directors.

He will formally take up his new position at the Danish engineering and construction firm’s general meeting on April 20.

Semco Maritime said Mr Groebler, who replaces Andreas Nauen, will “further strengthen” its competencies in sustainable energy and technology.

In 1999, Mr Groebler joined Swedish energy giant Vattenfall, rising through the ranks to become the firm’s senior vice president, head of business area wind.

In 2019-2020, he chaired trade body WindEurope and from 2013 to 2016, he was a board member of Bundesverband Energiespeicher, a German association working for companies with activities in the fields of development, marketing and operation of energy storage.

From July 1, Mr Groebler will take over as CEO of the German steel and technology company Salzgitter AG.

Semco Maritime recently announced plans to invest “tens of millions” in its low carbon operations this year as part of a wider plan to drastically increase its renewables offering by 2023.

The firm, which has a base in Aberdeen, said the expansion would allow it support the development of “new energy solutions”.

Commenting on his nomination, Mr Groebler said: “I look forward to joining Semco Maritime and contributing to the continued development of the Group’s activities in the sustainable energy industry, which is undergoing rapid development in recent years.

“Semco Maritime has already built up a leading market position and unique expertise in the fields of development, manufacture and commissioning of offshore substations for offshore wind projects, and the employees’ competencies and experience will be in demand in adjacent areas in the coming years.”
