THE OCEANTHERM ORGANIZATION

How did OceanTherm come into existence?


Seeing the devastating damages caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 motivated Olav to come up with the idea behind OceanTherm. With 1833 lives lost in addition to enormous damages, we all asked ourselves “how did this hurricane become so strong?”
