Maritime air lubrication technology company Silverstream Technologies has revealed the appointment of Alistair Mackenzie as its new chief commercial officer (CCO). 

The former executive vice-president of Kongsberg Maritime’s Strategy and Global Operations, Mackenzie joins Silverstream as the company looks to expand its international presence.

Mackenzie described the company as “future-focused”, saying: “The maritime industry is looking for economic and environmental savings and is open to disruption, but we cannot rest on the laurels of our success so far. 

“I aim to ensure that we have excellent intelligence and clear commercial direction as we continue this exciting growth journey.” 

UK-based Silverstream describes itself as the market leader in air lubrication technology for the shipping industry via its specialist system, which creates a carpet of microbubbles under the bottom of a vessel to reduce friction. 

The company’s international operations have included the installation of its tech on Chinese LNG carriers earlier this year, as well as a partnership with Drydocks World-Dubai on retrofit projects.
