Øyvind Bjørnevik and his colleagues at NorSea Property have an exciting journey ahead. Together, they will develop the business parks of the future at the NorSea bases, with a total area of around 2.5 million square meters.
“I’m very much looking forward to getting to know the great team in NorSea Property even better, and to start developing our services and base areas onwards. NorSea is incredibly well positioned to take new steps, both with existing and new customers in oil and gas, offshore wind, the aquaculture industry, hydrogen and a number of other new focus areas”, says Øyvind Bjørnevik.
On October 1st, he started the job as CEO of NorSea Property after Alf Dahl. Dahl has recently led the real estate company, in addition to being Group CFO of NorSea.
Øyvind Bjørnevik has a master’s degree in economics from NHH, has many years of experience as a consultant in PwC – before joining NorSea Group almost two years ago as a business controller.
350 football pitches
20 people are employed in NorSea Property, which operates and develops buildings and infrastructure at our bases along the coast, serving both our customers and NorSea’s own needs.
NorSea Property manages a base area of almost 2.5 million square meters, equivalent to 350 football pitches – and an office area with space for over 5,000 employees.
NorSea has worked actively to build dense business clusters at the bases, where companies that do business with each other are located next to each other. Several hundred service companies are now located at NorSea’s bases.
In Hammerfest, for example, there are over 40 companies at Polarbase, while there are 50 service companies at our base in Kristiansund.
The right person for the job!
For over 55 years, NorSea has primarily delivered its goods and services to customers in the oil and gas sector. We will continue to do so in the years to come. At the same time, we are constantly looking for new areas to develop our business in, new industries to offer our services to.
Alf Dahl is convinced that Øyvind Bjørnevik is the right person to lead the development of the business parks of the future at the bases.
“Øyvind is a great guy, a good person to work with. He is a very skilled professional, who knows NorSea, our customers and partners well after two years in the company. I look forward to following the development, both of Øyvind and of the brilliant team in Property”, says Alf Dahl.
