DNV GL has opened a new office in Vietnam to support its growth plans.
The new office was officially opened by His Royal Highness Crown Prince Haakon of Norway and Henrik O. Madsen, Group President and CEO, DNV GL.
The new office is located in the heart of the business district in Ho Chi Minh City. It will consolidate the operations of DNV GL’s three business areas - Maritime, Oil & Gas and Business Assurance – under one roof. The office will foster closer collaboration and working efficiencies between the employees of both DNV and GL, which merged in September last year.
Vietnam is a strong emerging market for DNV GL’s services in the maritime and oil and gas industries. In the shipbuilding industry, DNV GL is already represented at major shipyards from the north to south of Vietnam and the company firmly believes that the oil and gas industry will develop further in the years to come.
Rising demand for energy has prompted Vietnam to focus on exploration in deeper water reserves that requires high level of technologies. The country also needs large amounts of gas to cover future energy demands. Parts of this gas can be extracted from the Vietnamese continental shelf.
