A sustainable future at sea


An enabler of the
green transition at sea

HAV Group is an international provider of technology and services for maritime and marine industries. Although the group was formally established as late as 2021, it comprises four subsidiaries – HAV Design, HAV Hydrogen, Norwegian Greentech and Norwegian Electric Systems – that have several decades of combined industry experience.

Our ambition is to enable the green shift at sea through solutions and actions for low and zero emissions, improved energy efficiency and limited footprint across product’s life cycle.

The group considers itself to be an enabler of the green transition at sea. This claim is backed up by the provision of numerous products and services that support the marine and maritime industries towards the goal of zero emission, including:


Sustainability is core to our success and an integral part of HAV Group’s overall strategy and way of work. Our vision is a sustainable future a sea, a future that is Paris aligned, energy efficient, ocean friendly and safe, fair and inclusive for all.
