Two years later, AAK began the development of services at height to meet operational challenges and demand from the energy utilities and offshore oil and gas industry. As a result, in 1991, together with Statoil ASA, AAK introduced Rope Access Techniques as an approved work method on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
In 2009, drawing upon experience gained from the energy utilities and Oil and Gas markets, AAK entered into Offshore Wind Industry projects, initially the Alpha Ventus Project, the first offshore test and demonstration wind farm in Europe.
