The MarHub secretariat consists of two organisations: The Norwegian Shipowners' Association and the Maritime Forum. The secretariat works closely with the Board of Directors and is responsible for coordinating MarHub's activities and promoting its goals set by the Board.

The Norwegian Shipowners’ Association

The Norwegian Shipowners' Association (NSA) has around 160 members – shipowners in the tanker and bulk transport sector, short sea sector and offshore activities. The objectives of the Association are to protect its members’ interests with regards to industrial and employment issues, and to promote NSA and its members as a leading force in the international maritime industry.

The Maritime Forum

The Maritime Forum is a non-profit collaborative network and interest organization, with about 700 members from all segments of the maritime cluster in Norway from both employer- and employee-enterprises.


The secretariat is located at the premises of the Norwegian Shipowners’ Association in Rådhusgata 25 in Oslo.
