Mørenot, global provider of equipment and services for the fisheries, aquaculture and offshore industry, has appointed a new chairman.

Trond Williksen has extensive industry experience, having previously been chief executive at SalMar as well as positions at AKVA group and Aker. He replaces Espen Asheim who will stay on as a board member.

"Mørenot is an exciting company that's solidly positioned for further growth in key markets," said Mr Williksen. "I look forward to contributing to the company's future development."
