To meet the growing demand in the region, DNV GL has now opened a new office in Malaysia. The official opening of the office coincided with the company’s celebration of a double milestone: 150 years of proud history as a world leader in classification and technical assurance services and its first year as a newly merged company.
"According to the OECD, growth in the Emerging Asian economies (South East Asia, China and India) is expected to be a robust 6.9% for the 2014-18 period. Registering a 6.4% growth in Q2 of 2014, Malaysia has a well-diversified economy, with major contributors coming from export-driven service and manufacturing industries as well as the mining and agricultural sectors. The country is a key driver of offshore investments and is building substantial offshore infrastructure. Adopting strategies for sustainable development, the Malaysian government plans to develop an energy-efficient, diversified and sustainable energy mix for the future. All of which offers a very positive outlook for DNV GL. We've been in Malaysia for over 30 years and our commitment stays firm,” said Elisabeth Tørstad, CEO DNV GL Oil & Gas.
