DNV GL has hosted an event in Oslo, Norway, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the foundation Det Norske Veritas (DNV) and the one year anniversary of its merger with Germanischer Lloyd (GL).
Over 1000 guests gathered in Oslo to celebrate the event, which started at the Oslo Opera House, followed by an evening dinner at DNV GL’s headquarters in Høvik.
The Norwegian Prime Minister, Erna Solberg, attended the event and remarked: “Today we’re celebrating a proud history of safety and sustainability. DNV has played a critical role in the development of key Norwegian industries, and is particularly well known for its work in the shipping industry. And this celebration also marks a new era of the merged company DNV GL, which is far more than a maritime company. It is a leading organisation in many of the industries it serves, and is an example for the nation. Thank you for your important contribution to the Norwegian society.”
