It was announced from Høvik, Norway, on 3 June that Kenneth Vareide has been appointed the CEO of DNV GL’s Digital Solutions business, which is a provider of devices for managing risk and improving asset performance.
Oil and gas executives surveyed in DNV GL’s Industry Outlook highlighted digitalization as the leading R&D priority, although a lack of relevant skills was identified as the biggest barrier. Their peers in the energy value chain told a similar story in digitalization and the future of energy, with 91% of companies saying that further digital skills training was needed.
Added Vareide: ‘Our long commitment to creating value from digital technology means that we are able to combine deep domain and digital knowledge. As a company, we are in a constant dialogue with our customers and we are committed to providing solutions that bridge their digital skills gap.’
