Kongsberg Norcontrol enables VTS and coastal authorities to become e-navigation maritime service providers by offering off-the-shelf and customized solutions, as well as the platform and applications through which to deliver.

According to the IMO’s Strategy Implementation Plan for e-navigation, the digital infrastructure and information provided by e-navigation is expected to improve maritime safety, increase security, better protect the environment, reduce administrative burden and increase efficiency of maritime operations.  Additional benefits include the reduction of VHF communications, decreased workload both onboard and ashore, and the enabling of future innovations in autonomous vessels.

We help port and coastal authorities to realize the benefits that digitalized maritime services can bring to operations, be it delivering critical safety information directly to bridge systems, providing ships the means to report automatically and electronically, or planning a port arrival that is coordinated with berth availability and arrival service providers.

We deliver safer navigation, efficient operations and cleaner oceans.
