United Heavy Lift and Ocean7 team up in Norway

Germany’s United Heavy Lift (UHL) and Denmark’s Ocean7 Projects have teamed up to open a joint office in Norway.

The heavy lift, project and breakbulk specialists says the new Bergen office is the first joint office between the two companies and more are expected to follow.

Lars Rolner, CEO of UHL parent company United Shipping Group, commented: “I am happy to be having this opportunity to work together with Ocean7, we have had conversations about cooperating a few years ago and now finally we see it happen. Norway we see as a very strategic place to be. Christoffer Dam Larsen will be heading the office. He is a trusted and known person to me.”

Stefen Petersen, CEO of Ocean7, said: “We have always had the mindset of working together and this cooperation will enhance our ability of offering a wider scope to our customers in the future.”

“We see this new office as a start of building a world-wide network of offices together with Ocean 7. The next offices we have on the drawing board will be in Asia and USA,” Rolner added.
