19 companies joined the cluster this year
GCE Ocean Technology now has 140 partners and members from the complete offshore technology value chain; the energy industry, public-, financial-, research- and educational institutions.
– If we don’t collaborate with the smart companies around us, others will, so we have to seize such opportunities. The operators want the suppliers to share knowledge and collaborate on developing the technology they will need, and as a major player we have a responsibility to bring other companies in the industry along with us, says Atle Saure Lokøy, Pursuit Manager at Aker Solutions, who became a partner of the cluster this year.
– If someone can spin off our ideas, or we can play with others’, we can develop new products and services. In that context, GCE Ocean Technology is an ideal arena, Lokøy explains.
