Kongsberg Maritime and Solstad Offshore have entered into a collaboration agreement to identify and trial decarbonisation technologies across Solstad’s fleet.

The companies will work together to identify and utilise Kongsberg Maritime products and services to increase fuel efficiency and reduce GHG emissions on Solstad vessels. The agreement will investigate the use of other new, digital technologies to drive operational efficiency.

The Solstad fleet comprises about 40 modern ships operating worldwide, and all ships have equipment from Kongsberg Maritime onboard. The company is considered to be one of the largest offshore shipping companies.

James Poulton, SVP Aftermarket Sales, Kongsberg Maritime said: “Kongsberg Maritime is excited to continue our historic collaboration with Solstad Offshore. Close partnerships are key to developing the next generation of integrated technologies so that we together can support the goal of decarbonisation within the maritime industry.”

Solstad Sustainability Director Tor Inge Dale said: “Collaboration is the cornerstone of the ongoing energy transformation process. Kongsberg and Solstad share a rich history of partnering to advance and enhance technology, and this partnership will now extend to our collective efforts in decarbonisation.”
