DNV GL has opened a new South China office in Guangzhou to support business growth in the area.
Headed by Area Manager Gu Xiaoli, DNV GL South China covers the provinces of Guangdong, Fujian, Guangxi and Hainan.
“South China is one of the three national shipbuilding bases laid out by the Chinese government. The launch of DNV GL’s expanded new office shows our stronger commitment to the market after the merger of DNV and GL,” says DNV GL’s Vice President and Regional Manager for Greater China, Torgeir Sterri.
Landmark vessel agreement
The cooperation started in 1996 in relation to the construction of the first 1200 TEU container ship at the shipyard. Today, feeder container series have been one of the standout products for CSSC Huangpu Wenchong Shipyard.
Including CSSC Huangpu Wenchong, DNV GL has established a good relationship with the main shipyards in South China.
Looking ahead, Sterri remarked: “2014 marks Year One of DNV GL as a merged company and [the] 150th anniversary of our proud heritage. Combined with our expertise and competence developed over 150 years, DNV GL safeguards its leading technology edge by continuously investing in research and innovation. We expect to further deepen and expand the cooperation in new areas such as LNG carriers, Arctic shipping, offshore units, etc.”
