About us

 

The Grieg Maritime Group builds on more than 135 years of experience through our parent company, the Grieg Group. Formerly known as Grieg Star or Grieg Star Group, we changed our name in 2021 to highlight our transformation through the years.

We started as a shipping company in the early 1960ies, building up a fleet of high-quality multipurpose vessels. We are still one of the major operators within the open hatch segment of shipping through G2 Ocean, our joint venture with Gearbulk and the world’s biggest OH shipping company.

 

Today, we have organised our different business areas as separate and semi-autonomous companies. Through Grieg Shipowning and Grieg Star, we develop world-leading ship owning and ship management operations. We innovate and provide sustainability services to the maritime sector through our subsidiaries Grieg Edge and Grieg Green.

 

Our vision:

Creating maritime solutions for a better future
