CEO Lars Peder Solstad, says it is an honour for Solstad Offshore to receive this award, and sees it as a confirmation that the environmental efforts of the company have been recognized as an important contribution to the offshore industry,

-The Solstad Green Operations have been a great success, and have given us the possibility to introduce the first Climate Neutral Operations (CNO) of vessels in the offshore industry, says Solstad.

This work is coordinated by the company's Environmental Engineer, Svein Erik Isaksen, who co-operates closely with all vessels and employees.
