The arctic way
Living and working in the arctic
Nestled in the frigid embrace of the Arctic, our headquarters takes its place in Harstad, a historic northern Norwegian coastal town adorned with a vibrant cultural heritage. The maritime, fishing, and oil and gas industries flourish here, making Harstad a strategic hub in the north.
Yet, within this coastal gem, the weather can be unpredictable which creates challenges. The landscape transforms into a battlefield where frosty storms, relentless blizzards, and bone-chilling temperatures join forces with their allies: the insidious humidity and gnawing rust. This alliance of elements forms a strong adversary, relentless against boats, ships, and vessels every year. The unforgiving climate can be ruthless to vessels that are not sufficiently prepared.
For our workers, the Arctic environment provides an exceptional backdrop to their daily professional activities. As specialists in ship design and maritime engineering, they have a deep appreciation for the distinctive maritime landscape and the challenges it poses.
With each dawn heralding a polar twilight, they brave the arctic nights, where the sun’s fearful ascent barely touches the horizon. It is a symbiotic relationship where challenges are met with unwavering determination, strengthened by the dance of the mesmerizing northern lights, which illuminate the sky with their captivating aurora during the ethereal dark season.
In addition to our head office in Harstad, we have offices in Svolvær, Bergen, Stavanger and soon Narvik.
