Images for Grieg Star Shipping

Grieg Star Shipping

Grieg Star Shipping has purchased some of my images for decoration on their two new 58.000 DWT Supramax bulk carriers currently under construction at the Dayang Shipyard in China.

The images were suggested to Grieg Star Shipping by Speil & Ramme in Bergen, who also did an excellent job framing them.

Grieg Star Shipping is part of the Grieg Group, a family company with a long and proud maritime history.

Founded in 1961, they have now grown to around 1.750 employees globally and are the preferred shipping partner of many industries - particularly forest products like paper and pulp.

They own and operate a number of large ships that constantly cross the seven seas with their cargo - and more ships are under construction.

Underwater images for decoration

The Grieg Shipping Group are now building ten open hatch special crane vessels at the Dayang Shipyard in China, with delivery in 2012-2014.

The two first vessels, Star Athena and Star Eracle, are in the final stages of being outfitted before launch.

They will both have my underwater images as part of the decoration on board, along with the works of several Norwegian contemporary artists:

My images were suggested to Grieg by Eirik Hole at Speil & Ramme in Bergen, who also did an excellent job framing the images. I should perhaps say thanks for framing me...

Acknowledged by WWF

Grieg Shipping recently recieved the WWF Environmental Leadership Award for their support in rebuilding MY Navorca, a WWF Philippines research vessel.

MV Navorca is crucial in the conservation work in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park, the single most productive reef system in the Philippines and a world famous diving destination.

I am very pleased that the Grieg Group share some of my interests and beliefs, and I am very happy to have my images on board their ships. I hope their future crews will enjoy them!
