“With Morten we are strengthening the already solid Maritime Simulation team at Kongsberg Digital,” says Andreas Jagtøyen, Executive Vice President of Digital Ocean, Kongsberg Digital. “Our maritime simulators are used by educational and research institutions worldwide, and we need to continue to deliver on the high expectations of our customers while working to modernize and digitalize our offering. The newly launched
K-Sim Connect eLearning platform is an example of this, but there are several other areas we are exploring, such as the development of maritime digital twins. I look forward to Morten joining the team.”

The benefits and necessity of digitalization are becoming increasingly apparent for the world’s industrial markets. KONGSBERG is spearheading the development of maritime digitalization solutions, and recently the company stated an ambition of developing maritime digital twins in their newly formed Digital Ocean hub. Maritime Simulation – which Hasås will now head up – is part of Digital Ocean, enabling the synergies required to address the need for holistic digital solutions in the market.
