ABOUT US

OUR STORY

Larvik Shipping was formed in 1988 at the request of Norsk Hydro to become a dedicated shipping company for Norsk Hydro’s new carbon dioxide business. This coincided with the launch of Hydro Gas I, the first dedicated carbon dioxide tanker in the world. The shipping concept proved successful and new markets were developed with new terminals and ships.
