Anemoi Marine Technologies, which develops wind-assisted propulsion for commercial vessels, has appointed Liam Campbell as Projects Director.
Campbell has extensive experience in the maritime industry working in senior and director positions in shipyards, classification societies and shipping companies. He brings experience in strategic growth and business transformation.
He said: “Anemoi is now globally recognised as a leading Rotor Sail designer and manufacturer and I am very excited to join such a talented and dynamic team as Projects Director. Anemoi has designed a uniquely solution-orientated technology which, coupled with its established, strong supply chain, makes it one of the best choices for successfully reducing ship emissions.”
Campbell has managed large organisations and ship newbuild and refit programmes in four different countries for both shipyards and owners. He was previously responsible for selection of concepts and delivery of the energy efficiency programme for two major ship owners. This appointment takes Anemoi’s worldwide headcount to 45 plus a large team of production partners. Anemoi continues to grow at pace and announced last month that Liberian Registry has granted an Approval in Principle (AIP) for Anemoi’s Rotor Sail systems. The folding and rail systems were validated on a Newcastlemax bulk carrier design from SDARI and issued an AIP by Lloyd’s Register.
Kim Diederichsen, CEO Anemoi Marine Technologies, said: “Anemoi is going from strength to strength and Liam brings a wealth of experience to the team. He has proven expertise within the industry and will add huge value to our global client base as we secure more exciting projects and Rotor Sails continue to benefit the industry’s decarbonisation push.”
Campbell is a Naval Architecture and Offshore Engineering graduate from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, a Chartered Engineer and a Fellow of the Royal Institute of Naval Architects.
