Established in the UK in 1963 Fred. Olsen Ltd’s business interests primarily focus on renewable energy. Forest management and travel interests also feature in our portfolio. Based in the UK, but operating globally our brands aim is to build a reputation based on innovation, service and dependability.
With origins traced back to 1848, three Norwegian brothers embarked on an international shipping business.
Subsequent growth and diversification sees the organisation consisting of public companies, based in Norway, and Fred. Olsen Ltd. based here in the UK. Now in the 5th generation of family, Fred. Olsen related companies cover mostly energy related activities such as shipping, floating production, offshore drilling and renewable energy, but also cruise, media, real estate and venture capital.
