With a career spanning more than 30 years in the shipping industry, Glavan has sailed as a chief engineer for almost a decade before transitioning to shore-based positions, according to a statement by N-KOM.

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.
