WWHI will invest in and develop new activities primarily related to the maritime industry. The company was established in 2011 as a vehicle for investments in activities outside the scope of Wilh. Wilhelmsen ASA and Wilhelmsen Maritime Services.
Through the Wilh. Wilhelmsen’s 150 year old history, we have been in the shipping and maritime services segments, and lately in related logistics infrastructure ashore. In the future WWHI will explore new opportunities within the energy-, offshore- and maritime industry.
Qube Logistics Holding Ltd
WWHI is the second largest shareholder in Qube, Australia's largest provider of import and export logistics services. WWHI holds 76 million shares and an 8% ownership in the company.
“The Qube ownership strengthens our logistics engagement in Australia, being an important market for the WWH group. With Qube continuing to deliver good results and expanding activities, we are pleased to see the restructuring now being completed”, says Nils P Dyvik, chief financial officer in Wilh. Wilhelmsen Holding ASA.
NorSea Group AS
In June, 2012 WWHI signed an agreement to aquire 35.4% of the shares in the NorSea Group AS (NSG), a leading supplier of base services and integrated logistics systems to the Norwegian oil and gas industry.
“The investment follows our previously announced strategy aiming at exploring new opportunities within the energy-, offshore- and maritime industry, supplementing the activities of Wilh. Wilhelmsen ASA and Wilhelmsen Maritimes Services AS (WMS),” says Thomas Wilhelmsen, group CEO in Wilh. Wilhelmsen Holding ASA.
