“The new brand that we launch today reflects our broader service offering aimed at enabling our customers to make the world safer, smarter and greener,” says Henrik O. Madsen, President & CEO, DNV GL Group.

The merger of DNV and GL in September 2013, led to the creation of DNV GL, a world leading ship and offshore classification society, a leading independent service provider in the oil and gas sector, a powerhouse in energy and renewables, and one of the world’s top three certification bodies.

Innovative projects are taking technology and standards to new, advanced levels in collaboration with  customers. “It was from this broader view that our new brand strategy of our expansive, expert services and customer enablement was created. The new visual identity with the three extended lines was created to symbolize our working context of sea, land and sky,” explains Stefan Nerpin, Group Chief Communications Officer of DNV GL.

A merger for growth

The post-merger integration is progressing well and Group CEO Henrik O. Madsen says the new global entity is in “a good position to take on the first full year of operations as one company with a new brand: DNV GL. We want to build upon the knowledge and expertise throughout the group by creating new networks and learning from each other. Our goal is to make sure that we are always finding innovative solutions that create value and growth for our customers, ensuring that the world we leave behind is a better one that the one we find today,” he concludes.

Headquartered at Høvik outside Oslo, Norway, DNV GL say they employ around 16,000 people in some 100 countries.
