key strength of Roxtec in the maritime and offshore sectors is its ease of use,” he said. “It is not only quick to install, it is openable and adaptable to cables and pipes of different sizes. You can open up the transits whenever you need – and simply add new cables or pipes. Our non-weld sealing solutions, for example, greatly simplify ship modernisation and digitalisation projects.”
Mr Sharp added: “David has managed accounts across a wide variety of regions including Scotland, Norway, Denmark, Romania, Bulgaria and Ireland. He brings experience managing projects and contracts in line with safety regulations and client procedures. He also has strong knowledge in project planning, supervision of site personnel, general site construction and communications with offshore units. In previous roles he has led international business development teams and successfully pursued ‘global preferred supplier’ status, opening up new markets. He further benefits from an excellent working knowledge of our product line.”
In the UK Roxtec is witnessing growing demand for its cruise ship cable and pipe seals recently reporting a 67pc rise in sales. Its products reduce overall weight, helping operators use less fuel, lower ships emissions and save money. Another UK project saw cable and pipe seal supplied to a six-level accommodation module on the Golden Eagle oilfield development north of Aberdeen. Meanwhile, in the military market Roxtec completed a major project to protect miles of vital cabling on board Royal Navy Type 42 Destroyer HMS York.
Further international maritime projects have seen Roxtec’s sealing solutions supplied to Danish military support ships in the Absalon class and Samsung LNGC carriers. In addition, DSME, Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering in South Korea, and TUI Cruises in Finland have placed orders.
Mr Nistorica, who graduated from Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, with an MBA in Oil & Gas Management, said he initially came across Roxtec’s products at the start of his career. “I used Roxtec products regularly in my day to day job as an offshore technician and got to know everything about their maritime product line,” he said.
“The firm is a market leader for cable and pipe transits for the maritime industry. Roxtec provides the most tested and certified sealing solution in the industry– and having Roxtec onboard means safety and operational reliability. Its global reach and world class projects also provide a strong competitive edge.”
