Norwegian Maritime Exporters

Since 1995, Norwegian Maritime Exporters (NME) has served as a vital link between Norwegian maritime companies and the global markets. Operating in an industry characterized by fierce competition and the emergence of dynamic new markets, Norwegian Maritime Exporters and our members are busier than ever.

Representative at Local & International Levels


NME represents many of Norway’s most ambitious and innovative companies, ranging from multinational companies to small dedicated niche players, serving a wide diversity in different markets.

To increase its competitiveness, NME focuses on presenting companies within the Norwegian shipping cluster with organized activities in both national and international markets.


Complete Cluster of Maritime Services


With a population of around five million, Norway is a small nation. But despite the size of the country, Norway is a big player within the maritime industry. The long tradition of the maritime services has put Norway at the forefront of innovation and development. As the Norwegian ocean industry is diverse and spread across various industry sectors, cross-cluster work is essential in order to secure continued innovation and growth. The Norwegian maritime equipment industry, supported by NME, is a significant participant in this work.  

NME will continue its focus on market conditions and market access in order to assist and encourage in the industry throughout challenging times.


Link between International Markets & Domestic Maritime Equipment Industry


One of NME’s roles is to become a vital link between international markets and the domestic maritime equipment industry. To do so NME organizes promotional tours to important markets, builds strong relationships with international exhibition providers and secures favorable exhibition spaces for Norwegian companies.

NME works diligently with all parties within the Norwegian maritime clusters in order to ensure that Norwegian Maritime Exporters can retain its advantages in a challenging local and international market.

NME works closely with similar organizations worldwide in a pursuit to strengthen its members’ bonds to the maritime elements within the offshore industry.

To retain the advantages and superiority of the Norwegian maritime equipment industry one must look ahead. The future success hinges on the capability to change within the trends of the market and, as of today, with green and sustainable shipping and off-shore related equipment.
