Ms. Didi te Gussinklo Ohmann
Operations Director,
Van Oord Offshore Wind

An admiration for the sea and a never ending curiosity, have shaped the life of Didi te Gussinklo Ohmann and led to a career in civil engineering that already stretches over 20 years, taking her around the globe multiple times.
Born and raised in the Netherlands, Didi grew up on the sandy beaches of the Dutch coast. Here she witnessed first hand the beauty and strength of the natural elements. An inspiration she took with her when she studied at the Technical University of Delft, where she graduated as a master in coastal engineering in 1999.

Didi started her working life with engineering projects on almost all continents. The past 10 years she specialized in offshore wind, making important contributions to prestigious projects.
Currently Didi is the Operations Director Offshore Wind at Van Oord, where she is responsible for projects and the operations department.
Here she brings her talent of connecting people and building close knit teams with not only the aim to optimize the collaboration between the individual team members, but also with an eye for their personal development .

With people and projects, Didi always looks for new ways to have a positive impact and contribute to the development or improvement of the outcome. Seeking growth both from a human and technical perspective.

Mr. Sander Vergroesen
Managing Director,

Sander Vergroesen holds a BBA degree, did his military service as reserve officer with the Royal Netherlands Marine Corps and has many years of experience in various senior management positions. After two years in Dubai he joined IRO, The Association of Dutch Suppliers in the Oil and Gas Industry and Offshore Renewable Industry, in October 2011 and holds the position of Managing Director since January 2012.

Ms. Saskia Tates
General Counsel,
Neptune Energy

I started my career as an attorney of law and worked for a period of 8 years in a law firm and later also as an inhouse counsel at Aker Solutions, respectively Jacobs Engineering. In 2012 I accepted a position as Head of Legal and Corporate Affairs in the E&P business of the ENGIE organization in the Netherlands. In this capacity I was responsible for legal but also for public affairs and communication related activities pertaining to our business: offshore gas production. In recent years the political and societal stance in the Netherlands towards gas in general and gas production in particular has changed rapidly. Issues as the energy transition and earthquakes in Groningen have spurred this change. Stakeholder management has become a necessary condition in our sector to keep our license to operate, even when the activities actually take place offshore. It is really exiting to be engaged in such a process as it urges our organization to be more externally orientated than ever before. Since the past 2 years I lead the Global Legal function of Neptune Energy and also occupy a number of board positions.

Mr. Jo Peters
Secretary General,

As of April 1st 2012, Jo Peters joined NOGEPA as Secretary General.

His last position was Site Manager of Shell Amsterdam, where he was responsible for the building and positioning of the new Shell Technology Research Centre. As Secretary General Jo focuses on creating cooperation between the oil and gas industry and the renewable sector to thereby positively contribute to the energy transition.
