DNV, KEMA Create Energy and Sustainability Company

December 22, 2011

DNV has acquired 74.3% of KEMA’s shares, creating a world-leading consulting and certification company within the cleaner energy, sustainability, power generation, transmission and distribution sectors.  DNV and KEMA will form an energy  consulting, testing and certification company that can drive the worldwide transition towards a safe, reliable, efficient and clean energy ecosystem. DNV KEMA will consist of all 1,800 KEMA employees and 500 employees from DNV’s  renewable energy and sustainability activities. The new company will be led by Thijs Aarten, the CEO of KEMA, and headquartered in Arnhem, the Netherlands.  Mr Aarten will report to a Supervisory Board chaired by DNV CEO Henrik O.  Madsen. "By joining forces, 2,300 experts will meet the needs of an industry in rapid transition and growth.  The combination of cleaner fossil-fuel-based power generation and the increased use of renewables will truly make a global impact. This is the strategic rationale behind DNV’s biggest investment ever which, along with DNV’s other  8,000 employees engaged in supporting our maritime, oil & gas and other customers, makes DNV a leading global player in third party and  technical advisory roles,” says Leif Arne Langøy, the Chairman of DNV’s Board of Directors
