Our name

Our name, Horizon56, embodies our company. Our home and heritage are from the harshest offshore environments of the Northsea combined with the forward-looking and innovative culture – represented by the 56 latitudes of the region. When being offshore everything, we see is 360 degrees of horizons – and wherever we look at, we only see opportunities.

Horizon56 brings all this together, both the positivist view that the best is to come together with our roots, harsh, challenging environment that provides this company with a strong character.
