N-KOM makes new management appointments

Qatar-based shipyard N-KOM, a joint venture of LNG shipping giant Nakilat and Singapore’s Keppel Offshore & Marine, has revealed two new appointments to its senior management.

N-KOM said on Wednesday it has appointed Jacob Ipe as chief operations officer and Georgios Moutzourogeorgos as the chief commercial and business development officer, effective March.

Ipe is an experienced chief engineer who has accumulated more than 15 years of sailing experience with various international shipping companies such as Gearbulk, Wallem Ship Management and Essar Sisco Ship Management, the firm said.

On the other hand, Moutzourogeorgos is an experienced marine engineer who has served in senior positions at several established companies such as Maran Gas and various Greek Shipping companies prior to his appointment at N-KOM, it said.

The new appointments follow the recent announcement by N-KOM saying it had welcomed Damir Glavan as its new chief executive.

Launched in 2010, Nakilat-Keppel Offshore & Marine or N-KOM provides repair, conversion and construction services for marine vessels, offshore and onshore structures.

The yard has completed hundreds of LNG vessel repairs but it finalized its first FSRU project as well back in 2019.

It is located near the world’s largest LNG export complex in Ras Laffan.
