MEMBER NEWS: Miros Mocean appoints new CEO

Miros Mocean has appointed Andreas Brekke as CEO to drive its growth in the global shipping market.

Launched in 2021, Miros Mocean is a joint venture between wave technology expert Miros, BW Group, one of the world’s leading maritime companies, and Copenhagen Commercial Platform (CCP), an independent commercial platform with a specific focus on ESG for shipowners.

Miros Mocean is a future-facing platform, that integrates real-time vessel data and normalises it from local wave and weather parameters, this provides an unprecedented accuracy in vessel performance and thereby enables optimal performance and decarbonisation.

With more than 20 years’ experience across the energy sector, Mr Brekke’s appointment follows nearly a decade as CEO of Miros Group. During his tenure, the company increased its position in the offshore operations and energy markets, with contracts secured with key industry players around the world.

Based in the company’s headquarters in Asker, Norway, Mr Brekke will drive Miros Mocean’s mission to support the shipping industry with measured – not derived – local environmental data, for a precise overview of vessel performance in real-time, giving clear proof of efficiency and commercial viability throughout the lifetime of a vessel.

Mr Brekke said: “I am very proud to be continuing my journey within the Miros team as the CEO of Miros Mocean. After nearly a decade in my previous role as Miros Group CEO, I am honoured to have the chance to help the company explore specific solutions tailored to the shipping market.

Christian Bonfils, CCP CEO and Chairman of Miros Mocean added: “I have full confidence that Andreas Brekke will leverage his experience and knowledge of the industry in his new role, to further establish Miros Mocean as a leader in next-generation vessel performance.

Miros Mocean’s vision is to give the shipping industry accurate and relevant performance data to optimise costs and create a transparent, collaborative, and greener shipping industry for the future.

AREG is the original energy transition organisation, working on behalf of members to empower the energy supply chain and champion its expertise. Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to find out more about membership.

AREG has played an important role in the growth of Scotland’s renewable energy sector, engaging the supply chain and developing the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. However, we are only at the very beginning of the transition that AREG was established to both lead and support so there are still opportunities for companies to get into the constantly evolving renewables supply chain. We look forward to continuing our work together as renewables builds on its place as Scotland’s main source of power, and as we seek to deliver real change in the crucial areas of heat and transport.

Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce has worked closely with AREG since its formation. The recent progress in the developments of offshore wind projects by Equinor and Vattenfall are as a result of the work of the group over many years. The north-east is known as the oil and gas capital of Europe. At the Chamber, we believe the region must evolve its position to being recognised as the energy capital. Whilst hydrocarbons will continue to be essential in driving our economy for years to come, the generation of renewable resources will play an increasingly important role in providing cost-effective power, innovative development and economic growth.

The enthusiasm and dedication of the early group that would become AREG was fundamental in us choosing to launch All-Energy in Aberdeen. The first tiny show was held in 2001, and AREG’s Chairman at the time, Jeremy Cresswell, played such an active role that I often describe him in terms such as All-Energy’s ‘midwife’. All-Energy is now the UK’s largest renewable and low carbon energy exhibition and conference in terms of number of attendees, space booked, and number of exhibiting companies. As AREG became firmly established, their presence and support for the event grew spectacularly over the years. We thank them most sincerely for their invaluable input.


Vattenfall has forged a strong working relationship with AREG through the development of the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. AREG has worked tirelessly on behalf of the North East and it can take enormous credit for the growth of sustainable energy in the region and the path it has cleared for the region to capture further investment.


Aberdeen City and Shire is emerging as a key location for renewables by successfully transferring its world-class oil and gas expertise into the sector and AREG has done much to advance this through a broad range of initiatives. It has acted as a catalyst in driving further investment in the local economy by engaging with companies, Government, public bodies and existing projects and we have been pleased to support their efforts. Scottish Enterprise will continue to engage with AREG as we increase Scotland’s use of renewable energy.
