Norway has one of the largest and most comprehensive maritime sectors in global terms. The offshore fleet is the second largest in the world and the industry is characterized by its, high competence, innovation and advanced technology.

Norway has built a strong global maritime knowledge base, extending from fisheries and governance of marine resources, to shipping, maritime operations, and offshore oil and gas activities. The Norwegian cluster also provides a broad range of products and services from ship equipment, service providers, shipbuilding companies, seafarers and ship owners.

As these regulations are being developed, so has the technology for being in compliance with upcoming regulations. Norwegian companies have a strong position in ballast water treatment.

Norwegian ships and offshore vessels are among the world’s most advanced and are therefore well suited for operations in northern waters.
