FP Eiendom is Aker ASA’s real estate development company.
Aker has been in real estate since 1981 and developed some of Oslo’s most popular office, residential and retail areas like Aker Brygge and Nydalen in the 1990’s as well as major real estate projects in the US.
In 2012 Aker initiated a dedicated real estate company FP Eiendom to develop two premier business parks at its energy hubs at Fornebuporten in Oslo and Dyce in Aberdeen. These business parks currently host over 4,000 professionals primarily working within the energy sector.
FP Eiendom has since developed 450 residential flats at Fornebuporten. Recently FP Bolig established a partnership with Joh Johannson and Geveran Trading to develop and build 1,000 flats at Fornebu over the coming years.
FP Eiendom owns a 50 % stake in hotel operator Haut Nordic which operates three hotels in Norway. The current plan is to expand Haut Nordic significantly. The first hotel development Miklagard Resort Hotel is planned to open in fall 2020 with a 300-room capacity near Oslo Airport.
FP Drift is our technical management company which serves clients at the Fornebu area.
FP Eiendom’s mission statement is to be a leading real estate developer and a good partner for our customers and the local communities in which we operate. To this effect, we are particularly proud of our contribution to the creation of Imprints, the largest ceramic sculpture park in the Nordics, opened by Her Majesty Queen Sonja at Fornebuporten in 2015.
Launch of world-leading ocean hub at Fornebu
(Oslo, 9 October, 2018) REV Ocean’s plan for a World Ocean Headquarters was unveiled today at Fornebu in the presence of Norwegian Prime Minister, Erna Solberg. REV Ocean has partnered with WWF, IOC of UNESCO, UN Environment, BI Norwegian Business School, the Norwegian Institute of Marine Research and others to create an unprecedented global ocean solution center. The World Ocean Headquarters will be based in a landmark building “The Big Blue” designed by leading Swedish architect Gert Wingårdh. It will be owned and built by Aker, a renowned Norwegian industrial company, whose majority shareholder, Kjell Inge Røkke, is the founder of REV Ocean.
- Norway is a world-leading marine and maritime nation and has the opportunities and prerequisites for taking on a global leadership role for the ocean. Our goal is to facilitate the gathering of world-class knowledge-, innovation- and research communities at World Ocean Headquarters outside Oslo, says Nina Jensen, CEO of REV Ocean.
The vision is shared by the Norwegian government. At the launch today, the Norwegian Prime Minister said:
- Oceans are under pressure due to climate change, overfishing and waste pollution. To ensure the future growth of the ocean economy, we need to harvest resources in a sustainable way. I wish you all the best in establishing a World Ocean Headquarter that will gather, under the same roof, world class knowledge and experience. This initiative will contribute to more sustainable solutions for management of the oceans in the future.
The World Ocean Headquarters is designed as a “campus” - an open space with several structures and one landmark building. The ambition is to bring together world-class knowledge-based institutions related to blue economy, such as sustainable fisheries and ocean management, shipping, marine technology and aquaculture. Offices, conference facilities, apartments and hotel will be included in this thriving knowledge center.
