Our story and the route to renewables

The Havfram team combines decades of experience in offshore wind.

Havfram´s offshore wind business was established in 2020 when subsea installation company, Ocean Installer, ventured into the offshore wind industry. A reputable and expert team from offshore wind was recruited and combined with a team with decades of experience from complex oil & gas subsea installation. 

Due to market expansions and to ensure growth and further developments of both the subsea and offshore wind division, the divisions were split into two separate companies in 2022.


Company established

Ocean Installer was established by seasoned professionals that identified a need for a challenger in the offshore oil & gas installation industry that focused on harsh environments in the North Sea.


First contract award

In record time, the company won its first contract with oil and gas major and quickly became established as a 3rd North Sea installation company in the years that followed.


Downturn in the oil & gas industry

Company adopted an asset-light business model which ensured that the company was well positioned to meet the challenging market environments in the oil & gas industry.


Redefined strategy

Company is uniquely positioned platform within marine installation and defined as a preferred supplier of services to the international offshore wind industry.
