About North Sea Hagland Shipbrokers:
The company was founded in 1976 by Mr. Orla Fjord, and has since then developed from a smaller Sale & Purchase shipbroker house supporting the fishing industry, into one of the leading shipbroker houses supporting all maritime industries. The company entered the offshore renewables market in 2007, and have made a strong footprint and is one of the leading offshore renewables shipbrokers. In January 2018, RG Hagland Shipbrokers of Haugesund, Norway, acquired 49% of the company as it changed name to North Sea Hagland Shipbrokers ApS. The two companies have combined their shipbroking activities towards the renewables market. The companies also cooperate closely in other relevant areas, strengthening the service offering within other segments such as subsea, oil and gas, tugs, and sale and purchase.
