“The farming industry is moving more towards exposed localities and developing new production technology. It requires a completely different competence and focus on risk management,” says CEO.

Norwegian seafood advisory firm INAQ has appointed Vegard Aksnes as a Senior Advisor in the strategic business area of technology, effective from February 1.

With a background in marine technology, Aksnes brings a wealth of experience from his tenure at Sintef Ocean, where he has worked since 2010, leading research groups in marine constructions, operations, and aquaculture constructions.

Since 2020, he has been the center director of SFI Blues, a center for research-driven innovation in future marine constructions for renewable energy, aquaculture and coastal infrastructure.

Nina Santi, General Manager at INAQ, who took up her role at the company earlier this month, noted Aksnes’ crucial role in assisting customers with project development and technology assessments.

“The farming industry is moving more towards exposed localities and developing new production technology. It requires a completely different competence and focus on risk management,” said Santi.

“It is nice that we can offer our customers assistance with project development and technology assessments in this field. In addition, a lot of other exciting things are happening within the development of the ocean space, with a battle for the areas, but also great potential for the coexistence of different industries.”

INAQ offers a range of advisory services to seafood companies and investors globally, specializing in strategic development, transaction support, sustainability, and corporate governance.
