OceanSaver, a leading global provider of class-approved, high capacity ballast water treatment (BWT) systems, today appointed Houtan Houshangi as interim Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately.


Houshangi replaces Stein Foss who successfully developed and commercialized OceanSaver BWT system technology since the company’s inception in 2003. Foss will still be associated with OceanSaver and will together with the interim CEO focus on ensuring a smooth transition of leadership and the search for and hiring of his replacement. “Foss has played a critical role in OceanSaver. He has demonstrated a keen ability to develop a world-class BWT company, delivering high-performing filtration technology for critical ballast water treatment applications. The company has an impressive depth of talent, technology and capabilities, a very strong client base, and is well-equipped to serve a wide-open BWT market for retrofit and newbuild projects,” says Houshangi.


With increasing competition in the market place and the IMO convention getting closer to meeting its ratification criteria, OceanSaver has entered into a new phase of expanding and industrializing the business to ensure global competiveness. The development of key initiatives to accelerate the company’s technology, focusing on optimizing performance, quality and cost of its current and future BWT systems is paramount.
 

“Until a permanent successor to Foss is found, Houshangi will manage OceanSaver’s next stage of growth and further execute the company’s strategic plan while seizing new opportunities,” said Reidar Langmo, OceanSaver Chairman.
OceanSaver’s dedicated team is one of the largest global groups currently assembled to focus exclusively on larger BWT systems. The company is recognized worldwide for its industry-leading BWT technology, becoming shipowner’s preferred choice for newbuild and retrofit installations for medium to larger-sized vessels.
 

Houshangi brings over ten years of executive leadership experience in high-growth, technology and consulting companies, responsible for business strategy, global product development and operational improvement programs. He holds a Master of Science in Industrial Engineering and Management.
