The newly created group possesses a proud maritime heritage which will be used to cater to the global market for advanced marine solutions. The group maintains a strong customer orientation through sales offices in Moscow, Russia, Wismar, Germany and Oslo, Norway. The Oslo headquarters offers proximity to one of the world's leading maritime competence clusters within technology, project execution and financing. Wadan Yards Group specializes in advanced marine solutions for hydrocarbon exploration, production and transportation, particularly for Arctic conditions. Hence one of its key ambitions is to deliver key technology projects that will be required for the exploitation of the riches of one of the last marine frontiers; the continental shelf of the Russian Federation.
