Her expertise in leading large, diverse engineering teams, using tools and processes to provide assurance of engineering excellence, is considered a good fit within Silverstream’s working culture.

Savage said: “Silverstream’s technology is making a significant contribution to the decarbonisation of the shipping sector today. Technological innovation is at the heart of the business and I look forward to the challenge of balancing the considerable demand for the technology with forward-looking investment and development in Silverstream’s people, R&D and future product roadmap.”

The appointment of such an accomplished industry leader will further cement Silverstream’s credentials as a market-leading maritime technology company.
