Altogether during the quarter, Kongsberg Maritime signed new orders valued at MNOK 2 431.

“We are pleased with the growth experienced by Kongsberg Maritime in H1 2013. This further underlines our strong global position. Despite a slower market for our weapons stations in the U.S., we now see several significant opportunities on the defence side. This provides a good basis for further growth for KONGSBERG as a technology enterprise", remarks CEO Walter Qvam.
