Research and development

Research and development has been key to our success.  Since the start in the early 1960’ies, we have looked at ways of making our business more efficient. 

We were early movers when it came to installing gantry cranes on our vessels. Over the years we have always looked for new improvements. 

With the sustainability challenges the world face, this has become even more important. Sustainable Development Goal number nine, “Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure” is among the goals we have chosen. As a part of that, we have established Grieg Edge, to identify, develop and commercialise new, green business opportunities in the maritime industries.

Finding new solutions has never been about ourselves. We think these solutions should be shared. So we try to partner up with other companies, research institutions, governmental institutions etc.
