”Establishing a true partnership with Blue Water Energy creates an unique platform for Halvorsen to achieve the ambition of becoming a complete supplier to the global process and topside market. The Blue Water Energy team brings an impressive and highly relevant experience base to Halvorsen and I very much look forward working together to achieve our future plans”.
Tom Sikorski, Partner of Blue Water Energy, commented, “This transaction is consistent with Blue Water Energy’s objective of providing growth investment alongside high-quality European-domiciled energy businesses. Sigve and his management team have built an impressive organization which has grown substantially from its Norwegian roots. We look forward to a fruitful partnership with Halvorsen under Sigve’s guidance.”
