Our core values

We view corporate values as tools to create a common culture, purpose and direction – and to define how we behave towards each other. There are many values out there, these four are ours:


Safety is our main priority. Solstad vessels carry out operations all over the world, sometimes in extreme conditions. We recognize all employees as our most valuable asset, and we will never compromise on their safety. 


We focus on quality in all parts of our services. We shall always be trusted to treat everyone fairly and respectfully, and we keep our promises. With a vast fleet and a competent organization, our clients shall trust us to perform all operations in a safe manner and with focus on quality and efficiency in all stages of our services.


All employees in Solstad are key personnel. We aim not only to fulfill our client’s demands, but to deliver a service beyond their expectations. We ensure that our personnel are constantly learning to have the right competence and knowledge required at all times. Our operational knowledge shall be developed in close interaction between the marine crew and the onshore organizations.


We care about people, assets and the environment. Our company is global, but also local in the areas we operate. We conduct our business in a responsible manner, respecting the law and universal human rights to benefit the communities where we work. We are aware of our environmental footprint, and take measurable steps towards a better environment with the Solstad Green Operations program.

Fleet and square feet

We have offices on four continents ranging from Brazil to Singapore to Australia and of course our home continent of Europe. Our ships cover even larger parts of the globe, sailing in most of the important offshore energy sectors on the Earth.

The Solstad fleet consists of over 40 ships, and presents as modern, highly capable and greener than the industry standard.
