New Managing Director for Chelsea Technologies
Chelsea Technologies has appointed Elizabeth Paull as its new managing director. She joins the company from Sonardyne International.
Chelsea’s recent acquisition by Sonardyne has enabled the company to strengthen its presence in the maritime, ocean science and water quality sectors.
Paull will further develop Chelsea Technologies as a market leader in environmental sensing technology across a variety of industry sectors and particularly in maritime, where the regulatory landscape of today is creating significant challenges for shipowners and operators.
Her appointment comes at a time when accurate monitoring for greater transparency, efficiency and compliance is increasingly vital for the international shipping industry as stringent environmental regulations become more widespread. In the maritime sector, owners and operators are facing increased cost and regulatory pressures from developments such as the IMO 2020 sulphur cap and the Ballast Water Management Convention and need to adapt to different operational practices and requirements.
Chelsea’s expertise in portable ballast water testing and accurate scrubber washwater monitoring has seen a notable growth in demand in recent months as shipowners and regulators prepare for managing compliance with some of the most significant legislation to impact the industry in recent history.
