WHO we are

ECONNECT Energy was founded in 2012 driven by the belief that clean energy should be accessible and affordable. Challenging “business as usual” in the maritime, shipping and energy sectors, ECONNECT Energy pioneered the world’s first jettyless transfer of LNG, addressing the need for a cost-effective and environmentally-sound solution in the LNG value chain.  

Located in Oslo, Norway, ECONNECT Energy is positioned among many innovative companies leading the technology revolution in offshore energy.

We are dedicated to realising and
de-risking your marine infrastructure project

ECONNECT Energy was born from first-hand experience with the challenges and inefficiencies of traditional LNG offloading methods from ship to shore. Our core offerings remove the need for fixed and permanent infrastructure such as quays, jetties, trestle structures and loading platforms.

Dredging, which is expensive and damaging to coastal areas, can be eliminated with ECONNECT’s floating jettyless transfer solution.
