DNV GL opens new office in Malaysia

September 29, 2014

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 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.

DNV GL Malaysia’s move of its merged entities into its new Malaysian headquarters is evidence of this commitment. The new eco-friendly office over three floors will house DNV GL's four core business areas – Maritime, Oil & Gas, Energy, and Business Assurance - under one roof. This will create greater synergies and provide more integrated service offerings to customers. The new location in Menara Prestige, at the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s Golden Triangle, accommodates 250 employees from both legacy DNV and legacy GL. As part of the 150th anniversary celebrations and the official opening of its office, DNV GL held a dialogue with key industry players on the technologies that are transforming Malaysia’s energy landscape.

“One important industry trend is the drive towards a sustainable energy future. DNV GL has always been at the forefront of technology. We're constantly working with our partners in joint industry projects, gathering industry stakeholders to work together and support the industry in transforming technology into solutions for a safe and sustainable future,” Tørstad said at the event.

In 2013, the DNV GL Group had revenue of NOK 15 billion (approx. US$2.5 billion) and an operating profit of NOK 1.2 billion (approx. US$230 million).

DNV and GL merged to form DNV GL as of 12 September 2013. Operating in more than 100 countries, the company employs 16,000 professionals.
