Kongsberg Maritime buys simulation company

Kongsberg Maritime has signed a contract to buy the Trondheim-based ship simulation and consultancy company, Ship Modelling & Simulation Centre AS (SMSC), with the acquisition expected to be completed by the end of January 2016.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“More sophisticated vessel operations have contributed to an increasing focus on training to enhance safety and efficiency,” said CEO of Kongsberg Maritime, Geir Håøy.

“SMSC fits perfectly into our business and will complement our existing product and service portfolio well. In addition to supplying simulators, training and certification, the competence of SMSC also supports us to offer our shipyard and offshore customers new and innovative simulation services, ranging from ship modelling and engineering projects to pre-simulation and operational consulting.”

“At a time of strong focus on cost savings, it is important to look into the optimisation of procedures and crew training for more competent and effective implementation of operations. With the acquisition of SMSC, we will have the ability to assist our customers to improve their margins.”

SMSC will be integrated as part of Kongsberg Maritime following the acquisition, and continue its activities in Trondheim, where Kongsberg already has its own operation working with NTNU, Marintek and Ocean Space Centre.{/mprestriction}
