About us

The company was first established in the year of 1898, as Moelven Brug, and has more than 100 years of experience with defence equipment, offshore/subsea and airport related equipment.

CHSnor AS was established by Engineering Support AS and Bulklift AS in 2005 based on jobs for offshore operations. As time goes by we have done work for other clients, for instance Øveraasen AS and the Norwegian Armed Forces. We are also a member of TotAL-Gruppen, who is a team of companies working together with projects for the offshore and onshore operations, among others. CHSnor AS is also a member of SubSea EastNet. This includes 8 of the companies in TotAL-Gruppen working together with subsea projects. Our latest development is to be in charge for establishing the TOTAL DEFENCE GROUP (https://www.total-gruppen.no/omrade/forsvar)
