Heaten: appoints new CEO

  • Sector: Sea
  • Date: February 27, 2023

  • Company: Heaten develops and produces megawatt-scale industrial heat pumps with very high temperatures, which can recover heat that is traditionally lost in processes to various industrial customers.

The appointment of Jeroen Koot as CEO is a next step in Heaten’s growth strategy as a leader in decarbonizing industrial heating processes and saving energy with Very High Temperature Heat Pumps (VHTHP). Former CEO Peter Breithaupt has stepped back for personal reasons, and will continue to support Heaten as Advisor.

We are happy Jeroen is joining Heaten, as he brings the right qualities to lead us through an exciting period of growth in Europe and beyond, says Wendy Lam, Chair of the Board of Directors at Heaten. Koot has solid industrial CEO experience and is an authentic leader who has a clear sense of the potential of Heaten’s role in the energy transition, Lam concludes.

Heaten’s piston-based VHTHP technology is unmatched when it comes to efficiency, flexibility for variable processes, robustness and temperature ranges up to 200°C, and lastly scalability to mass manufacturing. The technology has been developed for over a decade and the high-demand industrial heatpump called HeatBooster is now ready for market launch. Heaten is entering a next phase in its development, and we look forward to working closely with Jeroen to achieve our ambitious goals for the future, says Geir Robstad, Co-founder and COO at Heaten.
