Harsema-Mensonides Takes New Role at Braemar

Braemar Engineering announced the appointment of Alex Harsema-Mensonides as Director of Marine Business Development, effective from September 1, 2014.

Harsema-Mensonides joins Braemar Engineering with a wealth of experience. He has held key roles across Europe, including technical and commercial positions in the marine industry across the Netherlands, Sweden and Germany, and also founded his own consultancy operating at the vanguard of the LNG sector around the world, advising GE Energy, ABB Marine and Caterpillar, amongst others.

A well-known figure in the industry, his expertise encompasses all aspects of LNG, including LNG as marine fuel, small scale LNG, LNG shipping and floating LNG.

“We are delighted to welcome Alex to the management team where his expertise, drive and enthusiasm will be ideally placed to help take our growing business forward,” said Geoff Green, Managing Director of Braemar Engineering. “Our reputation as a world leader in LNG projects is based on the quality and expertise of our people and this is underscored with the recruitment of Alex Harsema-Mensonides.”

Declaring himself to be ready for the challenges ahead, Harsema-Mensonides said, “Braemar Engineering is at the cutting edge of the LNG industry - which is itself part of a step change in the way energy markets work. We are looking at new markets, new sources of supply and new uses. This is a totally different ballgame, and Braemar Engineering is perfectly placed to use its expertise to deliver this new energy to these new markets in innovative and exciting ways. I am looking forward to forming part of that endeavor.”

Initially, Harsema-Mensonides will be based at Braemar Engineering’s Head Office in Maldon.
