Cluster Strategy
Mission/Objectives: 

The maritime cluster at Møre is a world leader in design, construction, equipment and operation of advanced offshore vessels for the global oil and gas industry. In 2014, due to its unique global market position and its important contribution to Norwegian value creation, the cluster was granted the status of a Global Centre of Expertise.

For many generations, the Møre maritime cluster has been a pioneer in technology development and operations at sea. As the cluster now ventures into the blue ocean arena, so a new chapter is added to our story.
