Nauen said the company will continue to focus on its key markets for its offshore business with the support of its new owner, Centerbridge Partners.
"If you look at all the studies that are out there for offshore it is clear that the European markets like the UK, Denmark, Belgium and Germany will dominate the next five years," he said.
"These are also the markets where we are strong, with projects in Germany and Belgium, and this is where we are going to continue with the strong support of Centerbridge."
Nauen also talked about the effect the takeover is likely to have on the company as a whole.
"I'm very optimistic about this," he said. "It gives us a clear path to the future, and the whole cooperation we've had with Centerbridge in the due diligence and preparation for closing and also preparation for the future has all been about how can we grow this company.
"We've been highly successful over the last five years, and they are highly interested in continuing that growth and success path, and offshore plays a prominent role in that."
