OUR TECHNOLOGIES FOR SUSTAINABLE OCEANS ARE LEADING A SEA CHANGE IN EFFICIENT, ZERO-EMISSION AND FUTURE PROOF GLOBAL MARITIME OPERATIONS
TECHNOLOGIES FOR SUSTAINABLE OCEANS
We are the ocean expert – defined by our world-leading technologies and people. We provide the technology, equipment and services required to operate at sea in the most sustainable way. We serve the entire ocean space from offshore and research, merchant and fishing to subsea and advanced offshore operations linked to aquaculture, oil and gas, and wind power.
We are shaping the Maritime industry - with our leading global positions within technology we contribute to several international forums. We are an advisor and partner to the UN’s Ocean Panel. As such, we advocate for sustainable marine management and healthy and productive oceans across the globe.
Integrated Solutions – everything connected
Kongsberg Maritime has a proud tradition of providing world-leading and pioneering products within automation, bridge systems, dynamic positioning, electric and digital solutions, and propulsion control. This, combined with our wider portfolio, gives rise to a range of unique integrated solutions.
Seamless integration of mission-critical products and systems creates customer value, giving us and you a sustainable competitive advantage. Developed in collaboration with domain specialists and experienced users, our integrated solutions deliver considerable gains in operational efficiency, safety, and sustainability.
Digital is core to our integrated solutions. As a digital frontrunner and leading integrator, we develop advanced product and segment-specific applications and digital solutions.
Accelerating change through digitalisation
Our digital solutions increase environmental efficiency by
- Automating workflows and increasing collaboration between systems and people.
- Enabling remote operations, support and centralised expert centres - reducing travel and preventing operational delays.
- Giving a data-driven approach to reducing your carbon footprint.
- Using hybrid analytics, machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) for operational efficiency optimisation.
- Enabling optimisation of specific targets, track improvements and benchmark efforts.
- Automating necessary reporting according to new regulations.
Technological development is crucial for creating a more sustainable society. Technology companies like KONGSBERG have a key role to play in solving the global and environmental climate challenges that the world faces.” Egil Haugsdal,President - Kongsberg Maritime
Propulsion and engines – thrust and power
A world leader in propulsion systems, we enable a transition to more sustainable solutions. Cleaner fuels, high efficiency, electrification, wind-assisted propulsion, and low-noise technologies are integrated into our products - delivering performance, cost-effectiveness, and sustainability.
We work closely with customers and leading universities in our product development. This is underpinned by a team of international leading experts in material technology, hydrodynamics, and innovative electrical propulsion using permanent magnets.
- Thrusters, including electrical PODs
- Complete propulsion & manoeuvring systems for offshore, merchant and defence.
For many vessels, Hydrogen technology is set to be a fuel of the future. KONGSBERG is emerging as a global leader. With partners in the HySeas III project, we successfully tested a maritime hybrid drive train using hydrogen fuel cells. Next step - installation aboard a Scottish ferry currently under construction.
Sensors & Robotics – understanding the ocean space
Our sensors and solutions are key to mapping, monitoring and understanding the environmental status of the ocean space. This aids safe and reliable control of vessels on and beneath the sea’s surface. Solutions also enable communication above and below water.
A range of sensors and robotics platforms give access to the ocean’s most remote and previously inaccessible areas. Our autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) HUGIN is one such example.
Eelume, another example is a co-owned company offering disruptive technology for subsea inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR) using a snake-like robot equipped with our sensor technology. Cloud-based monitoring and control solutions play a key role in converting high-fidelity data from our sensors into accessible knowledge about the ocean space – crucial for a sustainable ocean economy.
Scientists at the Norwegian Institute of Marine Research (IMR) will soon harvest more high-quality ocean data. Two HUGIN autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) and two Sounder unmanned surface vessels (USV) from KONGSBERG deliver a seamless stream of data from various sensors over a digital cloud-based infrastructure system to provide Blue Insight.
Deck machinery & motion control – efficient handling
Our wide range of products and systems within safety-critical deck machinery spans mooring and anchoring winches to anchor handling, specialised winches and handling systems for merchant, offshore, fisheries, tugs, naval vessels and many other ship types and offshore installations. Products can include electric and hydraulic motors, rigorously tested for extreme conditions. Efficiency and sustainable operations are key drivers, with ‘Safety first’ being our mantra in product development.
Our fin stabilisers contribute to a safe and pleasant cruise experience at sea, stable naval vessels and secure cargo. Our steering gears are suitable for all ship types and sizes.
Are you ready for EEXI and CII?
In January 2023, The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) will introduce new regulatory standards for ship energy efficiency. We can help you quickly and efficiently prepare your assets for compliance with the Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI) and Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII). Our unrivalled knowledge, experience and broad solutions deliver on all operational, commercial, budgetary and time requirements.
Leading the Sea Change
Our unrivalled knowledge and experience as the ocean expert creates a responsibility for us to pioneer, launch and continually evolve technologies that will help solve sustainable challenges today, tomorrow and beyond - a sea change for every generation.
