SOLUTIONS TO ALL REFIT, RETROFIT, UPGRADE AND CONVERSION PROJECTS.

We offer solutions at all stages of your asset’s service life and mobilise our unique global capabilities to deliver on the most ambitious projects. In order to extend your vessel’s operational capabilities, upgrade it to proven higher-performance and environment-friendly technologies, or prepare it to successfully fulfil new assignments within a different market segment, we guarantee the full commitment of our specialised team to accompany and support you until your project delivers on expectations.

WE DEVELOP SOLUTIONS TO HELP OUR CUSTOMERS RESPOND TO ALL CHALLENGES:

  • Prolonging service life

    Through major repairs, overhauls, upgrades and retrofitting of your KM systems, or by refitting your third-party equipment, we have the capabilities to rejuvenate your vessel and equip it with the latest technologies to further extend its service life in a safe, durable and performance-oriented manner.

  • Capability enhancement

    In a fast- and ever-changing world and industry where performance is the watchword and sustainability an opportunity to embrace, we have the capacity to extend the boundaries of your vessel’s historical capabilities through product and system upgrades, or the modernisation of a complete installation.

  • Power for greener operations

    With more than 30 major propulsion upgrades from conventional systems to LNG-fuelled, hybrid and full-electric set-ups, we have gathered concrete insights from our customers’ success stories to constantly improve our offerings and provide ideal solutions specifically suited to your vessel and operations.

  • Environmental upgrades

    In addition to the installation of greener onboard systems, from power generators to higher-efficiency consumers, straightforward upgrades are available to your installed KONGSBERG equipment to further minimise the environmental footprint of your vessel, improve its fuel and energy efficiency, and increase its operational flexibility.

  • Developed with safety in mind

    We make sure our solutions comply with the strictest safety standards. Our products, systems and upgrade solutions are approved by major class societies and will help you comply with international safety regulations through the upgrade or modernisation of your installation.

  • Vessel conversion

    If your vessel is to be assigned to entirely new purposes and missions, our Ship Design & Engineering experts will tailor-make the optimal solution to prepare it for new chart requirements and deliver on performance expectations while ensuring safe and reliable operations.
