Mr Naess

 

Erling Dekke Naess (5 September 1901 – 7 February 1993) as Norwegian businessman and Ship-owner stood in November 1946 at the foundation of the Naess Group after gaining solid experience in Maritime Business in which he landed after making a start in the banking sector during his study years at the London School of Economics.

Erling Dekke Naess always searching to increase efficiency, he became a pioneer in building innovative types of ships like the m.v. Vikingen (1928) originally built as a tanker but converted to including a fish factory on its Deck, or like the ordering of the first OBO carrier introduced for cost efficiency due to the avoidance of ballast voyages.

Naess was not only a precursor by building innovative type of Vessel, but he was also pioneering in Maritime business by introducing as one of the first European ship-owner the  panama flag of convenience, ordering the first generation of Super Tankers and OBO Carriers and by participating in companies like Anglo Norness and others. In 1970, Erling Dekke Naess was a co-founder and one of the first chairman of INTERTANKO (International Association of Independent Tanker Owners).

Erling Dekke Naess was a great shipping entrepreneur of worldwide renown.
