Published: 15 February 2016

Cluster Gold Label

GCE Subsea (then NCE Subsea) was awarded the Gold Label of Cluster Management Excellence the first time in June 2013. GCE Subsea recently engaged in the process of being recertified with the Cluster Organisation Management Excellence Label and the validity was extended for another two years.

A total of 31 quality indicators were assessed by two independent cluster experts by interviewing the cluster manager and relevant staff members. The findings of the interview had to be substantiated by relevant documents to be provided by the cluster organisation.

Impressive Strategy

The assessment report particularly emphasises our efforts in the new GCE Subsea strategy:

- We are impressed with the new strategy and the involvement from the companies in taking a leading position in transforming the industry in using the technical knowledge and competencies in new areas. For other clusters this should be an excellent example of how the cluster may be a driving force in a transformation process when a "crisis" occurs, the report concludes.

Top Score

GCE Subsea achieved a 96 per cent score on the 31 indicators being assessed. – We are very satisfied with achieving such a high score, says Owe Hagesæther, CEO GCE Subsea. - Receiving the Quality Label Gold is a considerable accomplishment and an international recognition of the work performed by GCE Subsea, he continues.

– It shows that GCE Subsea is both committed and able to maintain an efficient and accountable facilitator for our cluster, Hagesæther concludes.
