Cluster insight is a column where we ask six questions to catch a glimpse into the daily business-lives of the cluster partners and members.
This week, we spoke with Nils Fredrik Fjærvik, CEO at CCB Subsea, to learn more about him and the opportunities and challenges that the company is facing every day.
What is your role in CCB SubseaLeading the company from «ground zero» in 2016 through a start-up phase and into the subsea aftermarket, build the organisation, develop products and services as well as the customer portfolio.
Your main focus at work right now is?We are a newcomer and a challenger in our market segment, who can offer highly competitive services from all of our hubs along the entire Norwegian coast, but we also play a purely instrumental role in stimulating competition and thus the cost level in the segment in general. More customers will benefit from this, as they realise this opportunity. This is our most important message and thus also the focus we have. Our entire organisation, management systems, implementation models etc. are tailored to further develop our unique position as a system-independent supplier of maintenance and operation of subsea equipment and tools.
Biggest challenges for CCB Subsea in the future?Our biggest challenge is strictly the risk of the customers moving away from their cost focus and the need for competition in the market now that the «arrows» are moving upwards again. The future of oil and gas will continue to be volatile as never before, so our opportunity is often primarily in our flexibility related to resource utilisation.
Best part of being part of the clusterIn addition to providing access to a large and targeted industry network, we see great benefit in the membership by the way in which the people of GCE Ocean Technology assist us with regards to innovation projects and useful links to other cluster members.
Your business mottoAll is fair in love and war!
Which cluster member should we interview next?Rolf Røssland at NUI or Jan Richard Finne at BSA Offshore.
Thank you for the insight Nils.
