Serious Partner

NorSea is a serious partner within safety and security. As a vital link in our customer’s logistics chain, it is important to deliver secure solutions and effective safety systems.

Security and vulnerability assessments are carried out and maintained by security professionals. Extensive cooperation with governmental and emergency organisations ensures a relevant and efficient security regime.


NorSea port facilities are subject to the «ISPS-code». The code is in alignment with «The international Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea» (SOLAS-convention) chapter XI-2. The goal is to set a standard for security measures necessary to maintain the security of the ship and the port facility. Prior to arrival of an ISPS facility, the ship must send notification to SafeSeaNet.
