Kongsberg buys software company

Kongsberg Maritime reports that it has acquired 100 per cent of the shares in fleet management software company Jotron Consultas, and will create a new product group consisting of all previous Jotron Consultas employees based at Kongsberg Maritime’s premises in Horten, Norway.

The company believes that Jotron’s C-Loading software application will complement its K-Gauge cargo control and tank management systems in particular, with C-Loading now set to be integrated into Kongsberg’s K-Chief Integrated Automation System and the K-Gauge operating platform.

Kongsberg says that this will result in it being able to offer an enhanced cargo control and monitoring system with a fully integrated load calculator.

The Jotron Consultas Fleet Management software application will also be used to add content to the new Kongsberg Maritime ship@web concept. Ship@web allows a vessel’s administrative network, or the operator’s on-shore network, to display data from an automation system over the internet via a customisable web browser application.

“Jotron Consultas’ C-Loading software and Fleet Management Software, in particular, are both a strategic match for Kongsberg Maritime,” says Morten Hasås, executive vice president - merchant marine, Kongsberg Maritime.

“These established products expand our ability to provide ‘Full Picture’ deliveries, where Kongsberg Maritime is capable of developing and installing ship-wide integrated networks covering all major technical systems.”
