Norwegian Offshore Rental AS Celebrates 10 Years!

Norwegian Offshore Rental (NOR) started in 2011, and on their 10th anniversary this year NOR is happy to report growth, an exciting expansion, and a new office location to accommodate the growing team and rental pool. 

NOR is a substantial provider of rental equipment in the North Sea region, in addition to supplying equipment for projects around the world. NOR is headquartered in Haugesund, Norway, and just last year they opened a second location in Aberdeen, UK. 

In spring 2022 NOR is expecting to move their headquarters to a new office located in Aksdal, Norway. This facility is being built to house their expansive inventory, as well as new team members to serve their customers. 

Offshore, subsea, and renewables are just some of the industries that rely on NOR for equipment and project expertise. Olafur Gislason, Managing Director, commented, “We are excited for what the future holds for us, and the markets we serve. Having been with NOR from early on, I am privileged to be at the helm helping NOR serve, change, adapt, and grow with our customers and markets. We plan to continue investing in the best equipment, seeking new markets, and giving our existing customers above-and-beyond service whenever possible.”

Sean Demanuele, UK Office Manager, “NOR’s expansion into Aberdeen, UK has seen great results. This led to our need to find a new facility in Aberdeen shortly after COVID restrictions were lifted. With NOR’s established reputation in the offshore, subsea, and renewable industries it was a natural step to have a location in the UK where NOR can serve our customers from both sides of the North Sea.” 

All of NOR’s efforts has been focused on a solid vision, which is to be one the leading suppliers of rental equipment to the North Sea, and the world. Learn more about NOR at
