The Norwegian Market
Norway is one of the few countries with a large maritime cluster, consisting of leading international shipping companies, seafarers, shipyards, maritime suppliers, ship designers, brokers and providers of insurance and financial services. Shipbuilding in Norway is very diverse. It includes expedition cruise ships but also ships for the offshore wind industry, ferries and fishing vessels. Norway has a number of important shipyards, namely: Ulstein Verft, Vard, Vard Brattvaag, Vard Langsten, Vard Søviknes, Havyard Ship Technology, Westcon Yard and Aas Mek. Verksted. There are also numerous other yards building small workboats, among other things. Several parties maintain Norway's order book, see this website, among others.
The country also has several leading maritime design firms, such as Ulstein, Skipsteknisk, Marin Teknikk, Salt Ship Design, Vard Design, Multi Maritime, Polarny Maritime D&E, Deltamarin, NSK Ship Design and Kongsberg. These design firms, of course, also produce designs for ships built elsewhere in the world, such as Turkey and Russia. The Norwegian fleet is one of the largest in the world, this is true for both Norwegian owners and technical managers. In 2019, the fleet of Norwegian technical managers consisted of about 2,300 ships. Much of the fleet can be divided into a number of ship types, namely: passenger ships and ferries, offshore supply ships, fishing vessels oil/LNG/LPG tankers and general cargo ships. Many Norwegian short sea ships are relatively old and in need of replacement. There are therefore many opportunities here for Dutch shipyards and suppliers. Relevant topics among Norwegian ship owners are sustainability, efficiency, digitalization and linking smart systems on board.
