Company

Loke is a Norwegian company founded in 2019 with TechnipFMC and Wilhelmsen as technology partners and investors. We have teamed up with world class experts from exploration to extraction. We are actively pursuing licenses in international waters (ISA) and in the Norwegian Exclusive Economic Zone.

Sourcing Sustainable Minerals

To reach the UN Sustainable Development Goals, electrification will be of great importance. Wind and solar power, electric vehicles, and energy storage all play crucial roles in the green transition. This results in a dramatic increase in the need for critical minerals such as nickel, copper, cobalt, manganese and rare earth elements (REE).

The oceans contain by far the largest resources of critical minerals, and at Loke we have the knowledge, experience, and technology to explore and extract these minerals in the most sustainable way.
