Sludge treatment expert, Blue Ocean Technology AS, appointed Knut Antonsen as sales director/CSO. Knut will be responsible for developing Blue Ocean Technology's customer portfolio and, at the same time, building up the company's sales organization in Norway and internationally. He will be a key person in supporting the further growth of a rapidly growing market within closed aquaculture, both on land and at sea

He comes from a position as aquaculture specialist at Brødrene Dahl, where he had sales responsibility for national and international customers. He has been heavily involved in the development of the product and services portfolio, product packages and customer solutions. Knut has previous experience from ScaleAQ as an advisor within the Seabased segment, from Steinsvik as sales manager Region West and as regional manager aquaculture at Ahlsell Norway.

“Knut will be a true enrichment for us. He has a rock-solid CV, with very solid experience in a number of areas within the aquaculture industry. Knut shares our vision of energy-efficient, solid products that make a difference in the aquaculture industry. An industry on a journey towards more closed-containment systems, and with an increasing focus on circular economy, digitalization, total control of emissions, and not least efficient, profitable downstream solutions,” said Hans Runshaug, CEO of Blue Ocean Technology.

“I look forward to becoming part of the team in Blue Ocean Technology and contributing to further growth in a very exciting phase in the company's development. This is a unique opportunity to participate in the further development of the sustainable and resource-efficient technology that makes up Blue Ocean's industry-leading sludge handling and downstream solutions,” said Knut.
