In 2012, DNV and KEMA joined forces to create a world-leading consulting, testing and certification company for the global energy sector. This company has found its home within the important and future¬-oriented business area, energy, of the DNV GL Group. KEMA was established by the Dutch electrical power industry in 1927 and was subsequently developed into a high profile international brand that provided services to the global energy sector, including renewable energy, carbon reduction and energy efficiency, power generation, transmission and distribution.

The newly formed DNV GL Group became operational on September 12, 2013 after a long courtship that included numerous relationship-building advances and discussions about co-operation and mergers that took place in 1986, 2000 and again in 2006. Changes in ownership and strategic alignment between the two companies and their leadership provided new opportunities, and the merger was finally successful. The DNV GL Group comprises approximately 16,000 employees operating in over 100 countries.

Today DNV GL is well positioned as a global player within the maritime, oil and gas, and energy industries as well as food and health care to meet new challenges while balancing the needs of business and society.“
