GOTHENBURG: January 31, 2017. After winning a contract to provide transport solutions and port logistics for ENI Norge, Greencarrier Freight Services has opened an office in Polarbase.
Polarbase (right) is the main hub for oil and gas related activities in the Barents Sea. The new office is situated five kilometers from Hammerfest in northern Norway.
Under the new contract Greencarrier will support ENI Norge's activities in the Golliat offshore oil field expected to be in production for at least 15-20 years.
ENI said the award was dependent on a rigorous evaluation of the company's approach to health and safety, quality, risk management, global energy and project solutions, information and communication technology, organization, local establishment and staff experience.
"We already provide other customers in the area with similar logistics solutions, and we want to give the new contract the focus it deserves, so we decided to commit to opening our own office there," said Georg Skivik Moltu, Greencarrier director of Global Energy & Project Solutions.
The company has identified project forwarding and the energy industry as two of its main target areas of growth.
"We have provided transport and logistics solutions in the oil and gas sector for the best part of two decades, so we have the experience and expertise that customers in this very demanding industry need,
"The northern Norway area has great potential and we are very optimistic about this new contract and winning new business for the Polarbase office," Moltu concluded.
The privately held Greencarrier Group was founded in 2000 and now employs 800 people throughout Scandinaiva and the Baltic region as well as in the UK, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, China and Belarus.
