Norwegian offshore installation company Ocean Installer has established a new business segment focused on Offshore Wind and has appointed Even Larsen, currently CEO of Fred. Olsen Ocean, as the director of its new business segment. Larsen will join starting from August 1.

“I am very excited about this new chapter for our company, which makes Ocean Installer relevant in the ongoing global transition from oil and gas to renewable business”, says Odd Strømsnes, CEO in Ocean Installer.  

"Even’s capabilities and track record are of great relevance to our new initiative, where we together with our clients will play an important role in the energy transformation to a greener and more sustainable energy mix."

Even Larsen has a Master’s Degree in “Marine Engineering and Naval Architecture” from NTNU, and has extensive executive and operational experience from the offshore wind construction and service business. 

He has been central in building up the offshore wind segment in Fred. Olsen Ocean and its subsidiaries during the last 7 years. Since 2016 Even has had the position as CEO of Fred. Olsen Windcarrier and later Fred. Olsen Ocean.

Fred. Olsen Ocean Ltd. is the parent company for Fred. Olsen related companies active in the offshore renewables industry.

Larsen said: "The offshore wind industry is rapidly expanding from primarily a north European activity into a truly global business. Ocean Installer is a well-reputed subsea installation company, and I am excited to join the ambitious Ocean Installer team for their journey of transition into the offshore wind segment. I will contribute with my hands-on offshore wind experience and a strong commitment for offshore wind, with a target to build a new strong Norwegian global offshore wind player.”
