Sustainable engineering solutions company Danfoss has held an opening ceremony for its new Marine Competence Centre, which the company says is part of its commitment to become the preferred partner of maritime industries in decarbonising the marine industry.
The new Marine Competence Centre will act as a hub for co-innovation and sharing experiences across Norway, the Nordics, Europe, and globally. It is home to the Danfoss Marine Academy which will host training roundtables and events to share best practices and technical details to design the best solutions for each application. All Danfoss solutions will be available to test and simulate in this space, showcasing what the company describes as its commitment to sustainability and innovation.
Danfoss believes its product portfolio can cover all shipbuilders’ and system integrators’ needs in joining the green transition. Norway is a logical base for this centre, with its strong focus on sustainability and green energy. The country is already using battery-electric ferries, hybrid ferries, and electric catamarans for sustainable maritime transportation.
Claus Larsen, Head of Sales and Marketing Nordic Regions, Danfoss said: “We are excited to celebrate the opening of our new Marine Competence Centre in Holmestrand, Norway. At Danfoss, we are passionate about engineering tomorrow to create a better future. This centre is part of our commitment to decarbonising the marine industry and making a positive impact on the environment. We look forward to working with our partners and customers to develop sustainable solutions for the maritime sector.”
