Kongsberg Maritime and Solstad Offshore have entered a collaboration agreement to identify and trial decarbonization technologies across Solstad’s fleet.
The companies will work together to identify and use Kongsberg Maritime products and services to increase fuel efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions on Solstad vessels. The agreement will also investigate the use of other digital technologies to drive operational efficiency.

“Kongsberg Maritime are excited to continue our historic collaboration with Solstad Offshore,” said James Poulton, senior vice president of aftermarket sales at Kongsberg Maritime. “Close partnerships are key to developing the next generation of integrated technologies so that we together can support the goal of decarbonization within the maritime industry.”
