Incentra was founded in 1967 by 10 Norwegian shipping companies. Incentra is a marine purchasing organisation where shipowners, ship managers and rig companies are members. Incentra negotiate, enter and manage framework agreements with suppliers of goods and services for operation and maintenance of ships and other marine vessels. These agreements are exclusively used by the Incentra members.

Incentra SA is incorporated as a Norwegian Co-Operative society meaning that it is owned by its members. Incentra´s suppliers pay a fixed percentage fee of the annual turnover under their framework agreements to Incentra. This forms Incentra´s income which covers Incentra´s administration costs and expenses. Should Incentra reach a positive year-end result any such surplus will, in line with the Norwegian Co-Operative Societies Act, be shared equally between its members based on the individual members´ total revenue under Incentra´s framework agreements. The surplus will be paid out to the members as dividends. Should members, suppliers or related third parties have questions in respect of dividends paid out to specific members please contact the Incentra administration for further assistance.

Incentra performs audits of all suppliers, evaluating policies, management and systems for Health, Environment, Safety and Quality.

The activities of Incentra do not interfere with the autonomy of the individual member’s purchasing or technical departments. However, the success of Incentra is dependent of each member’s commitment and contribution.
