Aqualyng’s strong lineage comes from being part of the Lyng-Group, a renowned Norway-based industrial conglomerate. The group is heavily involved in industries such as electronics, energy and drilling for offshore facilities.

The company is the brainchild of the noted Norwegian industrial developer Bjørn Lyng, who came upon the idea for Aqualyng while building the Anfi del Mar hotel resort in the Canary Islands back in the early 1990s. Aqualyng is owned by experienced Norwegian industry developers as Staur Holding AS, The Lyng Group AS, Aqua Venture AS, as well as CLSA and Pareto.
