     Clarksons Platou OSV Staff

Working with owners, oil and gas companies, shipyards, designers, class authorities, investors and financial institutions we bring our expertise to any project.

The Offshore group has vast expertise in newbuilding construction and strong relationships with the majority of the world's yards and our extensive communication with owners and oil companies represents a considerable source of business opportunities.

Our employees are the most important factor to our success - hence our brokers have different background either as engineers, economists and previous seafarers.
