The two companies merged in December 2023 and have a combined fleet of 38 vessels and nearly 700 employees, operating in Chile, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada and Norway.

“This is a very exciting time for us, with huge opportunities globally. We have active and inspiring owners; with ambitions and visions I fully share. That has motivated me to take the helm and push forward together,” said Brandal in a press release.

Sverre Taknes will transition from CEO to board director and strategic advisor, continuing to work closely with Brandal.

“Since founding AquaShip in 2005, I have had the privilege of working alongside an exceptional team to build a company that stands at the forefront of our industry. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to have led AquaShip and now, as I transition to the board of directors, I am excited to continue shaping the strategic direction of AquaShip / Intership and support Ole Peter, who I have worked together with to merge the two companies since this past December,” he said.
