Scanel was founded by electrical installer Ole Thue Hansen in 1991 in his home town of Brovst in Northern Jutland, Denmark.
Palle Thordal Lavrsen, then Managing Director of Semco Marine, became Ole’s partner in 2001, further broadening Scanel’s network and expertise.
By 2005, Scanel employed 140 staff. The company decided to consolidate activities in the harbour town of Frederikshavn.
Owners Ole Thue Hansen and Palle Thordal Lavrsen, together with Managing Director Claus Søgaard Poulsen, head up the company today from Scanel’s headquarters in Frederikshavn.
Currently, Scanel employs almost 250 staff in Frederikshavn, at various regional offices in Scandinavia, and at customer sites on land, at sea and offshore platforms.
