We believe in the sensible and innovative use of science and technology, which characterizes our business. In the development of energy systems, water exploration, borehole logging and geophysics, we lean heavily on methods and technology derived from the oil industry.
In 2007, Fridtjov Ruden established Ruden AS. Already in the same year Ruden received the DnB NOR’s Innovation award of 1,3 million NOK for contributions to knowledge-based business development in Norway, in the sustainability category. In his career of 40 years, Fridtjov has been all over Africa, and other places in the world, to find and drill for fresh water.
Over the last 10 years, Ruden has continued building on this experience with the development of innovative solutions in applied geology and hydrogeology. The unique insight and experience, gathered from drilling and testing thousands of wells in Africa and the application of oil and gas technology and competence, is now being applied on Ruden Energy’s innovative energy systems, national water projects in Ruden Water, and applied hydrogeology in Ruden Geo Services.
In 2022, Ruden AS won the ONS Innovation award in the SME category for the HEAT technology.
