Maritime innovation

The maritime industry is one of Norway’s most valuable renewable resources. Our ambition is to be a world leader in maritime innovation. The need for innovation is greater than ever. New maritime solutions must be developed to meet an ever-increasing need for transport and energy extraction, and for efficiency and eco-friendliness.

Maritime Report 2013

Konjunkturraport
Norwegian shipping companies are forecasting more turnover and better profitability and are positioning themselves for long-term growth.

From highway to seaway

Short Sea
It is the objective of both Norway and the EU that more transport of goods should move from road to sea. Prognoses indicate that goods transport will increase by 75 per cent by 2010.

Norwegian shelf

Norwegian shelf
The Norwegian offshore fleet is the world’s most modern and its second largest. Shipping companies participate in all phases of petroleum activities – from initial seismic surveys to production and finally decommissioning of non-producing fields.

Private ownership

Privat eierskap
The Norwegian Shipowners’ Association’s ownership policy is based on a conviction that active private ownership provides considerable added value to the entire society.

Piracy

Piratvirksomhet
Never before have so many ships been hijacked in the Indian Ocean as in 2010. The pirates are better organised and behave more aggressively than previously.

Important to get in place the Polar Code

ingress 71 vessels sailed through the Northern Sea Route in 2013, compared to 46 in 2012. -The large increase in sailings underlines the need for a global regulatory framework, a Polar Code for the Arctic ingress - Sturla Henriksen, CEO of the Norwegian Shipowners' Association
Standpunkt
 
Although the number of sailings through the Arctic is still limited, the melting of the ice cap makes Arctic waters increasingly interesting for maritime operations.

-The ongoing process in the IMO is therefore very important, and we encourage all members to do their outmost to reach an agreement, Mr. Henriksen says.
 
The Polar Code will impose clear requirements on vessels operating in the Arctic or Antarctic.

-Quality shipping is more important than ever in these vulnerable areas, Mr. Henriksen says.
