Sustainable Innovation

Our approach to sustainable innovation is exemplified by the range of activities and projects we are working on.

We are working on a first of its kind liquid hydrogen supply chain project in Norway,  together with major industry players such as Equinor, Viking Cruises, Air Liquide, and others.  

Our joint venture company Massterly is involved in projects related to zero emissions logistics chain involving two autonomous vessels crossing the Oslo Fjord (ASKO)and bring emissions-free, autonomous container ships to market that also operate at a profit(SAMSKIP). 

In addition, we have extended our investment in NorSea Wind to service the growing future requirements in the wind energy sector.  NorSea has been in cooperation with BEWI Energy providing opportunities for the development of recycling plants for hard plastics at NorSea's bases in Europe and Norway.  

Our ships services division launched 3D printed marine spare parts pilot using on-demand additive manufacturing – eliminating the need for physical inventory storage, often complex distribution, and typically high logistics costs. 

And importantly, to reduce accidents and improve safety significantly for work activities related to ropes, our Ships services division launched the TIMM snapback arrestor. 

In 2020, we will continue to progress these projects and other innovations in line with our strategy.
