Quote from GCE Ocean Technology Executive

"Underwater technology is Norway’s «space programme».  Our underwater competence and technology is world leading and has largely been developed through offshore oil and gas exploration and production. Now we are bringing it to the next level through expanding our industry into a wider ocean industry context. In addition to future oil and gas production, our competence and technology will also be applicable for other ocean industries – it’s a testimony of a great future."

Owe Hagesæther, CEO
